Exciting Demonstrations Planned for
Moreno Valley’s Public Safety Expo

Moreno Valley’s public safety agencies have several exciting demonstrations slated for the 2014 Public Safety Expo. Residents won’t want to miss the opportunity to come out and have some fun by enjoying an interactive day with Moreno Valley’s public safety leaders from Moreno Valley’s Police Department, Fire Department, and from Animal Services.  The event is:


Saturday, April 12
10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Moreno Valley Civic Center 22850 Calle San Juan De Los Lagos

The City of Moreno Valley’s public safety partners (Riverside County Sheriff Department and CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire) provide the community with professionally staffed services that benefit residents, businesses, and visitors. The Public Safety Expo is designed to offer the public the opportunity to see and touch equipment, and interact with public safety personnel in a fun way.  This promises to be an interactive day as members of the public meet public safety personnel and ask questions and check out equipment they use to do their jobs. Here’s what the public can expect to see and do:

  • Get a “birds-eye” view of the City by watching the City’s new Citywide Camera System with tours of the Emergency Operations Center and Public Safety building. Utilizing the camera’s pan/tilt/ zoom capabilities, residents can view “real time” images from more than 260 cameras.
  • Watch exciting demonstrations such as the Hazardous Device Team’s use of robotics, K-9 and bloodhound training, fire suppression by the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and meet members of the Mounted Posse.
  • Interact with personnel and equipment displays from several units including:
    • Several police and fire vehicle displays including a fire engine and aerial ladder truck, multiple police units, the CERT Trailer, Emergency Response Force (ERF) Trailer, and Animal Services/Animal Control truck.
    • Many live demonstrations including teams and equipment from Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), and several booths with information about volunteer opportunities and various safety related information.
    • Other displays include car seat safety and car seat giveaways, and finger print kits that will be available to help parents keep their children safe; displays from the Forensics Services Bureau and the Riverside County Coroner.

The Citywide Camera System is a relatively new force multiplying tool in use by Moreno Valley Police Department to provide 260 additional “pairs of eyes” at 74 locations in the City.  The cameras are producing significantly positive results as they have assisted in nearly 200 wide-ranging investigations. The public will have this exclusive opportunity to see the cameras in action, learn more about the system, and tour the camera operations room.

The event will take place on Calle San Juan de los Lagos between Frederick St. and Corporate St. and in the Public Safety parking lot.  Public parking is available at City Hall at 14177 Frederick Street. For more information, please contact Shanna Palau at 951.413.3037.
