• Pasadena Police Increase Safety Measures for AmericaFest 2013


    On July 4, the Rose Bowl Stadium will host the 87th annual AmericaFest celebration. The Pasadena Police Department wants everybody to enjoy themselves, but is also keeping public safety as their priority. As such, they are conducting an awareness campaign regarding illegal fireworks and implementing their plans for enhanced safety measures.

    The public can expect increased security measures for major events within Pasadena, including increased security personnel consisting of uniformed law enforcement and private security, high-profile deployment of urban patrol rifles, expanded bag checks at congestion points and use of metal detectors. Also, there will be the presence of explosive detection canines and other security tactics.

    “Our public safety personnel and the public must remain vigilant in our effort to identify suspicious activity and take action. While celebrating our country’s National Day of Independence, please remember safety first and if you See Something, Say Something,” said Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez.

    Please contact the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-4241 to report suspicious activity or fireworks violations. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July.
