Moreno Valley Police Department

Hosts National Night Out



Residents throughout the City of Moreno Valley are invited to join in with thousands of communities nationwide for the 31st Annual National Night Out (NNO) on August 4th.   The Chief of Police, other City leaders and Moreno Valley Police Department Officers will be visiting the NNO locations coordinated by official Neighborhood Watch neighborhoods. The event runs from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. National Night Out events are happening at the following locations:

  • Neighborhood site, 24707 Conley Ct. 
  • Neighborhood site, 2334 Gebera St.
  • Il Sorrento Senior Gated Community, 23820 Ironwood Ave.

NNO is designed to generate support for anti-crime programs such as Neighborhood Watch and heighten gang and drug prevention awareness. It also serves to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and won't tolerate their presence. "Crime prevention is a community effort and getting to know your neighbors is a great place to start" said Moreno Valley Police Chief Joel Ontiveros.

Business Spotlight: Cupcake & Espresso Bar



"Un-power" Hours are noon to 6 p.m.


The hottest part of the day is also the time when energy demand is at its highest - from 12 to 6pm. Here are simple ways that the City of Moreno Valley and the Community Energy Partnership* encourage you to reduce your energy usage during peak hours to help you save when it counts most:

  • Keep the thermostat on your A/C set to 78F.
  • Use your washer, dryer and dishwasher only during off-peak hours, preferably when they're full.
  • Make sure coffee pots, radios and other electronics have been switched off or are unplugged when not in use.
  • Turn off your computer screen saver (it wastes power by keeping your computer active).
  • Set your computer to turn your monitor off after 10 minutes of non-use and your hard drive after 20 minutes.
  • Devices such as laptops can run on battery power during the day and then be recharged at night. Don't forget to unplug when not charging.
  • Not using your oven during warmer temperatures will help your air conditioner work less to cool your home.

The state of California may issue a Flex Alert - an urgent call to conserve energy immediately. When you hear a Flex Alert, save electricity NOW by turning off unnecessary lights and following any of the tips mentioned here. Go to www.flexalert.org for more information.

Summer Safety Tips!

The Office of Emergency Management wants you to be prepared! The following is just one of the great tips listed on our website:  


Emergency Kit for School. Having an emergency kit at school will help make any emergency experience a little better. Parents are encouraged to prepare a school emergency supplies kit for each child.

A list of some of the recommended items that could be included in each child's emergency supplies kit is as follows:

  • Emergency drinking water (3-day to one-week supply)
  • Non-perishable food (3-day to one-week supply)
  • First aid kit and book
  • Essential medications
  • Lightstick or a flashlight with extra batteries
