Today at around 10AM a group blocked the vehicle entrance to the Foster Farms plant. A group of 11 blocked the roadway using chains and other devices to lock themselves together and to the U-Haul truck that was used to block the road.

Thanks to the help of Merced Sheriff's Office and the Fresno Sheriff's office the violators were removed from the devices and arrested by Livingston Police officers. The event lasted about six hours and involved over 200 protestors, mostly non-violent and nearly all from the bay area or other non-local areas. By 6PM our community was able to return to work after the protestors dispersed.

We greatly appreciate the support of local law enforcement agencies including the Merced Sheriff's Office, Fresno Sheriff's Office and the California Highway Patrol.

We apologize to our community as we were unable to respond to non-emergency calls during this event.

On 9/11/21, Fire Chief David Bates and I were invited to Five Rivers Restaurant for a 9/11 ceremony and car show. Fire Chief Bates and I were both asked to speak at the ceremony. It was great turn out and we saw a lot of really nice cars. To my and the Fire Chief’s surprise we presented plaques to the Police Department and Fire Department. It was quite the honor to receive these plaques thanking our departments for what we do for our community. I am proudly displaying our plaque in the Police Department lobby.
Thank you all.

We made another arrest on a person who was believed to be stealing catalytic converters but the crime is still occurring at a high rate. Domestic violence still tops our violent crime lists and likely will continue until after the restrictions of the pandemic are lifted. We had several cars stolen and located during the two weeks.

Always remember those who lost their lives defending freedom and our country’s values as well as those who fell victim to acts against our country including those Americans currently suffering in Afghanistan and in less known situations around the world.

During the service of the warrant officers located an indoor Ma*****na grow with hundreds of plants along with several pounds of packaged Ma*****na.

Alberto Zavala, 23 year old of Livingston was arrested for obstructing and officer.

Giovanni Hernandez, 34 year old of Livingston was arrested for violation of restraining order.

An alert officer came upon a suspicious vehicle on Industrial Dr. resulting in an arrest of a suspect who apparently had just stolen a catalytic converter from a car parked on the street. It was nice to make an arrest on this crime trend that has been plaguing the country but it will not stop the thefts so please continue to be alert for suspicious people and vehicles in your neighborhoods and report them to us.

Another continuing theme is the higher than normal number of domestic violence and domestic violence related arrest. Check in on your loved ones to make sure they are okay and if you suspect they may be experiencing a domestic violence situation, encourage them to seek help from the police and continue to support them through the process. Some of the signs to look out for is if they become unusually withdrawn and avoid social situations or if they are being isolated by their spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend, meaning they are kept from talking to friends and family.

Good Morning Community of Livingston,

Earlier this week El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office called for mutual aid to assist with the Caldor Fire. Generally when mutual aid is called for, support can be from dispatchers to law enforcement officers or any specialized equipment. As of today we have four officers assigned to the Caldor Fire on a rotating basis for 2 and 3 days at a time.
I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU OUR PATROL SHIFTS ARE STILL FULLY STAFFED TO ENSURE OUR COMMUNITY IS SAFE AND PROPERLY PROTECTED.
The picture attached was sent to me by Officer Dhami. I take great pride in our officers and their flexibility with putting themselves in danger to protect other communities when needed.

Respectfully,
John Markle, Chief of Police.

As we go into our second week of school I want to remind everyone BULLYING is not okay.

Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students. It’s a problem that has many people concerned besides the kids on its receiving end. However, because parents, teachers and other adults don’t often see it occurring, many do not understand just how extreme bullying can get.

Two of the main reasons people are bullied are because of the way they look or their place in the social structure of their environment. Children who are seen as “not fitting in” because of how they look, who their friends are, or how they act are often the targets of bullying.

Bullying can be anything from physical assaults to verbal abuse or online on social media consisting of threats or insults, even sharing of photos. Taunting and teasing are often the most common forms of bullying, with physical contact being more serious but occurring with less frequency.

One of the biggest concerns today is that bullying can be relentless for the victim. In the past, the student might endure bullying at school, but were able to escape from it when they went home. Today, however, with the advent of social media such as Facebook, bullying can continue on even after the student has left the school environment.

Kids that are bullied are often in a state of fear. This can affect their schoolwork and even their overall health. Studies have shown that people who are abused by their peers are at an increased risk of mental health issues including low self-esteem, stress and depression. Thoughts of su***de can also be result of bullying.

WHAT CAN YOU DO! REPORT ANY FORM OF BULLYING IMMEDIATELY: ASK FOR HELP!

1. Ignore the bully or simply walk away. Remember that most
bullies thrive on the reaction. If the teen shows no reaction
the bully may eventually lose interest and go away.
2. Control your reaction. The bully is typically looking for some
sort of reaction from the teen. If they can control their
emotions and not react the way the bully is expecting, it can
throw the bully off guard. Remember – the bully is looking to
see if they can get a certain reaction. It gives them a feeling of
power and control when they get the reaction that they were
looking for.
3. Do not get physical. Violence will not solve the situation and
may only make it worse. The victim can end up in trouble if
they assault the bully regardless if the bully instigated the
confrontation or not.
4. Take control of your life. You have no control over how others
perceive you or how others will act. But, you do have control
over how you feel about yourself. Remember – If you talk to
40 different people, you will have 40 different reputations. All
that is important is what you think of yourself. If you stay true
to yourself, this confidence can make others give up teasing.

I hope everyone has a great school year, which is bullying free.

Respectfully

John Markle, Chief of Police

How to Report Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a silent crime that happens around us everyday. It happens in many forms including people taking advantage of teenagers who have mental illnesses or are struggling to fit in, turning them into prostitutes or drug runners to Cayotes offering to smuggle people into our country and then making them serve as slave labor once they are here. If you are aware of or are suspicious of human trafficking, or if you just want to be educated on the topic please follow the link.
