  • PBA Update

    The Pasadena Business Association was honored to be part of National Night Out. As you have heard, this is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and camaraderie to make neighborhoods a safe, better place to live. We held our first event for the Eastern District Police Station on August 4 and hoped for 500 in attendance, but were amazed at the 2,000-plus in attendance.

    We hope to even make it better next year, so mark your calendars. I could not have worked with a greater group of organizations to make this evening a success. Just remember that the police officers are there to protect us, and we need to thank them for their service.

For far too long, various departments whose missions overlap did not meet regularly to discuss common areas of interest. The police department...
