|COFFEE WITH THE CAPTAIN RECAP-Hosted by San Elijo Hills Community Association (HOA)|
The HOA Board of Directors would like to thank Captain Jones and the COPPS Division from the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station for meeting with our community on Monday. Here is a recap of what was discussed:
Egging vehicles in our community – If your vehicle is egged while driving you should immediately call 911 to report it. This is being taken very seriously by the deputies and depending on the outcome of the incident can be charged as a felony. They seemed unaware of these incidents being a recurring issue, so please ensure you are reporting all incidents. California Vehicle Code VC 23110 – Any person who throws any substance at a vehicle or any occupant thereof on a highway is guilty of a misdemeanor. Any person who with intent to do great bodily injury maliciously or willfully throws or projects any rock, brick, bottle, metal, or other missiles, or projects any other substance capable of doing serious bodily harm at such vehicle or occupant thereof is guilty of a felony and upon conviction shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison.
Curfew Sweeps – The COPPS Division will be engaging their juvenile division and stepping up curfew sweeps in San Elijo. Curfew is 11:00 PM – 6:00 AM in San Marcos. Keep in mind that a minor doesn’t have to be engaged in any other crime to be picked up in a curfew sweep. They will be handcuffed and arrested. Minors, as well as their parents, will be directed to diversion programs and the family fined.
See Something, Say Something – There seems to be a severe lack of reporting incidents in San Elijo. Err on the side of reporting. The more they know about what is going on in our community, the better they can assist us. The non-emergency number is 858-565-5200
You can TEXT 911 – This should only be used when calling 911 isn’t an option for you. But if you need it, you can text 911.
Speeding – It was requested that more radar enforcement happen within our town center. The speeding/racing, number of accidents, and wrong-way drivers have become a real issue. The deputies ensured the community they would make the traffic division aware of the concerns and ramp up enforcement.
After-School Activity – The deputies were thanked by the community for their efforts to help curb after-school activity in the town center. They reminded us to keep them in the loop if it starts to ramp up again so they can respond appropriately.
We will be sending out safety tips and reminders over the coming months. Stay safe, and remember — See Something, Say Something! The non-emergency number is 858-565-5200.
