Police Department Hosts Events for Residents

Coffee with a Cop

 Moreno Valley Police Department Officers are hosting a series Coffee with a Cop events to provide a unique opportunity for community members to meet with police officers in an informal setting. The next one is on Wednesday, October 15th. The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. at Carl's Jr. located at 27670 Eucalyptus Ave.


Community Oriented Policing Zone meeting 

 The Community Oriented Policing Zone meetings are evening meetings being held  to provide an opportunity to for all community members to meet with police officers to discuss community issues and build positive relationships. While all community members are invited to attend, the focus of discussion will be issues specific to the Zone in which they are located.


The Police Department's goal is to teach the community about how officers and the community can work together in creating and maintaining safer neighborhoods.

firehalloweenHalloween Safety Tips


 The Moreno Valley Fire Department Offers the Following Halloween Safety Tips:

When choosing a costume, stay away from billowing or long trailing fabric. If you are making your own costume, choose material that won't easily ignite if it comes into contact with heat or flame. If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough so they can see out. Monitor your child's hydration level when wearing thick material costumes.

  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume.
  • Dried flowers, cornstalks and crepe paper are highly flammable. Keep these and other decorations well away from all open flames and heat sources, including light bulbs and heaters.
  • It is safest to use a flashlight or battery-operated candles in a jack-o-lantern. If you use a real candle, use extreme caution. Make sure children are watched at all times when candles are lit. When lighting candles inside jack-o-lanterns, use long fireplace-style matches or a utility lighter. Be sure to place lit pumpkins well away from anything that can burn and far enough out of way of trick-or-treaters, doorsteps, walkways and yards.
  • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations, so nothing blocks escape routes.
  • Tell children to stay away from open flames. Be sure they know how to stop, drop and roll if their clothing catches fire. (Have them practice stopping immediately, dropping to the ground, covering their face with hands, and rolling over and over to put the flames out.)
  • Use flashlights as alternatives to candles or torch lights when decorating walkways and yards. They are much safer for trick-or-treaters, whose costumes may brush against the lighting.
  • If your children are going to Halloween parties at others' homes, have them look for ways out of the home and plan how they would get out in an emergency.
  • Children should always be accompanied by an adult when trick-o-treating.
