1st Responders and the Mission Beach Community over Memorial Day Weekend -
Due to the work of Capt. Manansala Commander of the Northern SDPD'S Northern Division and his staff the beach communities from the South Mission Jetty to Torrey Pines State Beach will have well over 100 officers on duty from Noon to midnight on Friday through Monday over Memorial Day Weekend.
Officers from throughout the entire city will be working overtime to provide this support for out community. This means that while we enjoy time with friends and family our SDPD officers will not be with theirs but instead be protecting our community so if you have the opportunity Please thank them for their service.
On Monday the Mission Beach Women's Club will host a luncheon in South Mission Beach for our police, fire fighters, lifeguards and park rangers. Feel free to stop by and thank them on Monday or any day this weekend at the command post just south of the restrooms at Belmont Park. If you can donate to this please see the flyer below.
