Glendora Safe Schools

Print

The Glendora Police Department in partnership with the Glendora Unified School District, the Charter Oak Unified School District, and the Azusa Unified School District work together to maintain a safe school environment.  

Glendora Police Officers regularly patrol school campuses throughout the day.  The Traffic Division organizes directed enforcement on a rotational basis at each school during peak drop-off and pick-up times.  The goal is to increase traffic safety through education and enforcement. 

The Traffic Division also meets regularly with City Engineers to assess traffic patterns and hazards around the schools.  
Patrol watch commanders meet twice each year (at the start and mid-point) with the principals of each Glendora school in order to share information and work together to address school related issues.

The Glendora Unified School District has established the Coordinated School Health Committee which is represented by community members, city employees, Glendora Unified employees, and Glendora Police employees.  The committee meets three times each school year and discusses upcoming events, programs and school related health concerns.

In addition, Police Articulation meetings are held three times each school year between Glendora Unified executive staff members and police command staff.  The meetings address specific school safety issues. 

The Police Chief, Lisa G. Rosales, regularly attends monthly PTA meetings.

The police department has two school resource officers.  Officer Efren Cordura is assigned to the Glendora Unified School District, and Officer Nancy Pedraza is assigned to Sierra High School (Azusa Unified School District).  The Covina Police Department has a school resource officer assigned to the Charter Oak Unified School District.
