CoinOn April 9, 2018 officers responded to a call regarding a mentally disturbed subject who had stabbed himself in the foot. While en route they learned the subject was a retired soldier with PTSD and he was now trying to stab himself with a kitchen knife. The reporting party was the subject’s mother who was in the house with him.

Upon arrival the officers immediately asked the mother to exit the residence and escorted her to a safe zone, while the other officers on scene started communicating with the subject calmly using de-escalation techniques in order to safely apprehend the subject. He was then treated for his wounds and placed on a mental health evaluation hold. This was great police work, communication and outstanding teamwork from the Monterey Police Department.


On Friday March 16, 2018 the department received information on a subject who was responsible for numerous burglaries and vehicle thefts throughout Monterey County. Officers and detectives began investigating and conducting surveillance. With the assistance of PRVNT, a search warrant was authored and three subjects were subsequently arrested. A stolen vehicle and five stolen firearms were recovered.
