City Welcomes Two New Police Lieutenants
The City of Moreno Valley would like to congratulate Michael Koehler and Tony Hoxmeier on their promotion to the rank of police lieutenant.

Lieutenant Koehler has spent nearly ten of his 13-year career assigned to the City of Moreno Valley, beginning as a new officer. Koehler then promoted up the ranks within Moreno Valley as a Corporal, Sergeant, and now Lieutenant.

He brings a wealth of knowledge, ideas, passion, and enthusiasm to the City and we welcome him as part of our police management team as Administrative Lieutenant.

Lieutenant Hoxmeier also served as a police officer in the City of Moreno Valley for six years. Three years ago he returned to Moreno Valley at the rank of Sergeant. Lieutenant Hoxmeier is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and has proven his dedication to serving our country and our community.    Lieutenant Hoxmeier is definitely a welcomed asset of the management team, leading our patrol operations division. 

We look forward to the continued service of these fine Lieutenants in the city of Moreno Valley!
Lawless Road to Receive Street Improvements
Improvements will be made to Lawless Road between Pigeon Pass Road and Shadow Mountain Drive beginning Monday, February 25.

That portion of Lawless will be temporarily closed to accommodate reconstructing the street, installing sidewalks and curbs, and adding street lights.

The street is scheduled to reopen by the end of May.

Detour routes will direct drivers around the temporary street closure. Shadow Mountain Park will remain open throughout the construction and will be accessible through the Presidio Hills Drive entrance.

The City of Moreno Valley appreciates your patience while work is done to improve your roads. Please contact the Land Development Division at 951.413.3120 for more information.
Church Members Tour Police Station, Bring Snacks to Fuel Officers
Members of Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) recently stopped by the Moreno Valley Police Department for a station tour.

The men, women and children watched a K-9 demonstration, met with officers, toured the facility and were able to get an up close look at a variety of police vehicles.

Church members graciously supplied officers with snacks and drinks to help fuel them for a day of keeping Moreno Valley safe.

Thank you for your generous donation - and for stopping by to visit!
Injured Donkey Rescued by Animal Control Officers
After evading capture for almost a month, a young burro with a broken leg was captured by Moreno Valley Animal Control officers and given medical care.

Animal Control Officers Motta and Perdomo caught up to the injured animal near Lawless and Pigeon Pass Roads.

The burro was transported by representatives of Donkeyland to their burro sanctuary where Dr. Wan provided medical care to the injured animal.
