Brave citizens could receive up to 
$5,000 for information leading to 
criminal convictions.

By Kevin McGuire

A Public Safety Reward may be granted to Sierra Madre 
residents who provide pertinent information leading to the 
identification or the arrest of violent offenders who cause 
bodily injury or death to person(s) as a result of a criminal 

The reward, which could be up to $5,000 or possibly more, 
is modeled after a similar Los Angeles ordinance and was 
recommended for approval by City Manager Jose Reynoso 
and Chief of Police Gustavo Barrientos. Resolution No. 24-
22, establishing a public safety award, was presented before 
the City Council for approval on Tuesday, March 26. Chief 
Barrientos gave a brief presentation on the proposal.

The city is authorized to offer and pay a reward for the 

A. For information leading to the determination of
the identity of, and the apprehension of, any person whose
willful misconduct results in injury or death to any person
or who willfully damages or destroys any property or;

B. To any person who comes to the aid of any peace
officer of the local agency or who furnishes information
leading to the arrest and conviction of any person or
persons killing or assaulting with a deadly weapon or
inflicting serious bodily harm upon a peace officer of the
local agency while such officer is acting in the line of duty,
according to the staff report.

Chief Barrientos cited a recent incident in Sierra Madre 
where there was a “hit and run” where a resident was hurt 
as a result of a collision with a bicyclist who fled the scene 
of the accident. This rewards program will encourage 
persons to come forward if they have information leading 
to the identity and conviction of this person. 

The Resolution also establishes a procedure to offer 
and pay rewards to avoid the potential risk of fraud or 
misappropriation of funds.

Certain persons are ineligible for the rewards, including 
a city officer, employee, agent, or dependent or spouse of 
such officer, employee, or agent. 

If a person is involved in the misconduct that prompted the 
offer of the reward or an agent of the person involved in 
the misconduct that prompted the offer of the reward, no 
reward will be given. 

Furthermore, if a person has already been compensated 
by their employer or in some other manner for the actions 
that are the basis for claiming the reward. In that case, no 
additional reward will be given.

There was no hesitation in passing Resolution No. 24-22. “I 
love it,” stated Councilmember Gene Goss. Councilmember 
Kristine Lowe also backed it, saying it was similar to what 
other cities do to support citizens who come forward. 
Merely seconds later, Mayor Pro Tem Robert Parkhurst 
immediately jumped in with a motion to pass, followed by 
Council Member Edward Garcia seconding the motion. 

The Resolution passes unanimously and will be retroactive 
to March 1, 2024. 

The City Council will decide who is eligible for the reward 
and from where the funds will be allocated, as this is not a 
currently budgeted item. 

The Sierra Madre Rose Float Association (SMRFA) has unveiled the concept 
for their 2025 float. A vibrant celebration that kicks off with the festive allure 
of piñatas! Accompanied by the lively melodies of a mariachi band and the 
dynamic energy of traditional ballet folklórico dancers, this year’s entry 
promises to be nothing short of extraordinary – a true embodiment of "Best 
Day Ever!” Congratulations to Steve and Belle Gagne who submitted this 
exciting concept! Illustration by Jesse Ellico.
