The Sierra Madre Police Department recently arrested a suspect for residential burglary. The suspect entered unlocked residences and vehicles to steal property. The department has recovered several items of property believed to be stolen. In an effort to determine the legitimate owner of the property, the recovered items will be on display on the police department’s web site.

If you have been a victim of burglary during the past year, please look through the listed photographs and identify property by the image number. Once you have identified property you believe may belong to you please call to arrange an appointment with the Sierra Madre Police Department Detective Bureau. You must provide a police report and/or proof that the items you have selected belongs to you. The proof can be in the form of a photograph depicting you wearing the item, a serial number, or a receipt clearly describing the property.

Upon receiving the proof ownership, a detective will present it to the court and a judge will make the final determination if the item will be released to you.

Just a reminder an item that you may have selected will not be returned to you at the time of your appointment. You will receive notification at a later date to pick up the item.

Police Chief's Message

Larry Giannone, Chief of Police-Sierra Madre Police DepartmentOn behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Sierra Madre Police Department it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. We thank you for choosing to actively engage in your community. As Sierra Madre’s Chief of Police I am dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for those who live, work and visit this great town.

The department and its staff continue to work towards building a strong partnership with the community and city. With enhanced volunteer support and putting more officers on the streets we are working hard to keep Sierra Madre’s reputation of having one of the lowest crime rates in California. Our continued training and hiring of experienced officers and part-time staff members has created a law enforcement team committed to serving their community.

Goals for the future include the continuing development of a bicycle safety program, expansion of the volunteer program to include Citizens on Patrol and a Police Chief’s Advisory Board. It is also our aim to gain more interaction with our schools with the advent of School Resource Officers.
