• Rose Parade Watch (Community Policing)

    PASADENA (CNS) – Motor homes, trailers and other large vehicles parked
    along the route of Saturday’s Rose Parade will be visited by Pasadena police
    beginning Wednesday to ensure parade-goers are complying with regulations and
    looking out for scofflaws.
    The 10th annual Parade Watch operation began as a security measure
    instituted after the 2001 terrorist attacks, according to Pasadena police.
    “This program has allowed the Pasadena Police Department the
    opportunity to reach out to hundreds of people personally,’ Police Chief
    Phillip Sanchez said.
    “It is community policing practiced in one of Pasadena’s finest moments
    and we believe that it is a critical component in the safety and security of
    the parade route,’ he said.
    All vehicles parked within a block of the parade route are subject to
    being searched, he said.
    Vehicles cannot be left unattended overnight within a block of the
    parade route. Unattended vehicles could be towed.
    People whose vehicles are visited by police will receive a commemorative
    2011 Pasadena Police Department Parade Watch decal for the vehicle.
    The Rose Parade is Saturday. Pasadena police urged anyone seeing
    suspicious activity along the parade route to call (626) 744-4241.
