Officer Shaun Diamond Memorial Highway

In loving memory of Shaun Diamond

Officer Shaun Diamond was a dedicated officer and a beloved member of the community who was taken from us far too soon. The sacrifice he made to protect and serve will never be forgotten.

On Saturday, October 29 we will commemorate the two-year anniversary of Officer Diamond's passing by officially dedicating a portion of the I-10 as the Officer Shaun Diamond Memorial Highway.

I hope you will join me, the Pomona Police Department and the Diamond family to honor Shaun and pay tribute to his service.

Participate in the Great Shakeout

With over 37 million people living and working in California, a major earthquake could cause unprecedented devastation.

What we do now, before a big earthquake, will determine what our lives will be like afterwards. With earthquakes being an inevitable part of California’s future, we must act quickly to ensure that disasters do not become catastrophes.

Make sure you’re prepared by participating in the Great California Shakeout, a statewide earthquake drill held annually on the third Thursday of October. The 2016 drill will be at 10:20 a.m. on October 20.

The 2016 Shakeout drill will be the largest preparedness event in world history. It is organized by the Earthquake Country Alliance.

To participate, go to and pledge your family, school, business, or organization’s participation in the drill. Registered participants will receive information on how to plan their drill and create a dialogue about earthquake safety.

For any other questions and information, please call (909) 902-9606.

San Bernardino Shooting: Lessons Learned

The tragic events of December 2, 2015 are still fresh in our minds. After every major incident, it is important to review the emergency response to determine what went right, what can be done better and what we can apply statewide to better prepare for emergencies.

As Chair of the Joint Legislative Committee on Emergency Management, I will be holding a hearing on the December 2nd shooting. I invite you to join us.

The Great California Shakeout

If an earthquake strikes in your town will you be prepared?

Join millions of people in the Great California Shakeout, a statewide earthquake drill held annually on the third Thursday of October.

The 2015 drill will be at 10:15 a.m. on October 15.

The Great California Shakeout is an annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes. Participants learn how to drop, cover and hold on and update their emergency preparedness plans.

To participate, go to and pledge your family, school, business, or organization’s participation in the drill. Registered participants will receive information on how to plan their drill and how to create a dialogue with others about earthquake preparedness. All organizers ask is that participants register (so they can be counted and receive communications), and at the minimum practice "drop, cover, and hold on" at the specified time. It is only a five-minute commitment for something that can save your life. It all begins with registering, which is free and open to everyone.
