Monrovia Officer Rosendo Ramos Awarded Distinguished Service Medal


On June 13, the Monrovia Police Department held its annual Awards Ceremony. Officer Rosendo Ramos III was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal for his exceptional work and dedication to the Monrovia Police Department and the community of Monrovia.

Serving as a police officer for just over one year, Ramos has become a highly-valued employee of the department, consistently ranking as one of the most proactive officers in the Operations Division.

In addition to his on-duty work ethic, this past year, Ramos demonstrated his commitment to service by taking immediate action during two incidents while off duty. The first incident involved a motorcyclist who went down on the 210 Freeway in heavy traffic. Witnessing the incident while on the freeway, Ramos and his father stopped to divert traffic and render aid until paramedics responded. During the second incident, Ramos observed a deputy sheriff involved in a physical altercation with a suspect. Ramos, again, immediately responded professionally to assist the deputy with detaining the individual until backup units responded.

“Officer Ramos has developed an excellent reputation among his supervisors and peers.  He maintains a positive attitude and is always willing to help his fellow employees at a moment’s notice and without fail” said Alan SanVictores, Chief of Police. “His strong, unwavering work ethic has earned Officer Ramos the Monrovia Police Department Commendation Medal in the relatively short time he has been assigned to Patrol. This accomplishment is indicative of his steadfast and tenacious dedication to duty.”

Ramos has also expressed his dedication to the community through volunteerism. In November 2018, Ramos participated in the annual Thanksgiving Food Distribution, where he helped distribute food to families in need.  He also participated in the annual Special Olympics Torch Run and the Special Olympics Tip-A-Cop event, both events help to raise money for Special Olympics. 

For his professionalism, commitment to service, and dedication to the Monrovia Police Department and the community he serves, Officer Rosendo Ramos III was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal and recognized as the Monrovia Police Department’s 2018 Officer of the Year.

Monrovia Police Will Check Your Seatbelt Starting Today

From May 20 to June 2, Monrovia Police Department will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers and passengers who are not buckled up, including drivers who do not secure children in child safety seats. The enforcement effort is part of the national Click It or Ticket campaign focused on increasing seat belt use.

“Seat belts have proven time and time again to be life-savers,” said Sergeant Chad Harvey of the Monrovia Police Department. “Buckling up should be second nature.” At 96.2%, California has one of the highest seat belt use rates in the nation. However, 532 people killed in crashes statewide last year were not wearing a seat belt.

“Putting on a seat belt takes a few seconds and is your best protection in a crash,” said Sergeant Harvey. “We want everyone to be as safe as possible when driving or riding in a car, and wearing a seat belt is the easiest way to do that.” In California, the fine for a seat belt violation is $162, and $490 for failing to secure a child in the proper safety seat. Under California law, children under two years old, 40 pounds and 40 inches are required to be in a rear- facing car seat. Children under the age of eight must be secured in a car or booster seat.

California has a primary seat belt law, which allows law enforcement officers to ticket someone for not wearing a seat belt without committing another traffic violation.

Funding for Click It or Ticket enforcement efforts is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
