• A One-on-One With Our Chief John Schaefer


    SMT: Chief Schaefer, what is new at the San Marino Police Department since last year’s SMPD tribute issue?

    JS: Well, a number of things. For one we have completed a number of enhancements to the SMPD web pagehttp://www.cityofsanmarino.org/smpd/index.htm as part of an ongoing effort to make more information available to the public. The City has updated its overnight parking ordinance to allow residents limited overnight parking, and we have installed a Livescan Applicant fingerprint terminal in the station so that citizens can easily get their fingerprints taken for the various application processes that require this.

    After an extended effort, we have been able to fill every vacant police officer position in the Department, bringing our total complement of police officers to 28, which is above the state average for a community this size.

    Like everyone, the Police Department has grappled with the down-turn in the economy. Unfortunately, budget cuts at the state and county level have resulted in a large number of convicted criminals being released earlier than they would have been. This has and will continue to have an impact on crime.
