SGPD to host Chinese-speaking ‘411 with the Chief'

 City Council approves San Gabriel Police satellite station at Marshall School

As part of the department’s outreach efforts to engage with the community, the San Gabriel Police Department is now hosting Mandarin and Cantonese sessions of “411 with the Chief.”

Hosted by Police Chief Gene Harris, “411 with the Chief” allows residents of San Gabriel to meet directly with the Chief of Police and members of the police department in an informal setting. This interactive forum is an excellent way for members of the community to ask questions and to get answers about their local police department or police practices.

“The City of San Gabriel is about 60% Chinese American and a significant portion of this population is primarily Chinese-speaking,” said Mayor Jason Pu. “As a second generation Chinese American who speaks English and Mandarin, I am proud that our City is taking steps to ensure that we engage and inform our Chinese-speaking population. I applaud Chief Harris and the San Gabriel Police Department in these efforts.”

“San Gabriel has an incredibly diverse population and it’s important for us to engage with every member of our community,” said Police Chief Gene Harris. “Our goal is to provide exemplary service to everyone in San Gabriel, and I hope these new sessions allow us to connect with an even wider audience.”

These new Mandarin and Cantonese sessions will be hosted at San Gabriel City Hall Council Chambers located on the second floor of 425 South Mission Drive, San Gabriel on June 5, 2019, October 2, 2019 and February 5, 2020. Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking staff from the San Gabriel Police Department will be available on these select dates to provide translation services. English sessions of “411 with the Chief” will continue to be held on the first Wednesday of every month.
