Moreno Valley Explorers Honor Law Enforcement Officers
Moreno Valley Explorer Post #882 participated in a ceremony to honor our local heroes hosted by the Law Enforcement Appreciation Committee (LEAC).

On April 18, LEAC representatives acknowledged law enforcement officers who have displayed dedication through their acts of selflessness by going above and beyond their duty.

Moreno Valley Police Explorers provided an honor guard detail and assisted the LEAC as ushers. Officers were recognized in the following categories:
  • Valor
  • Investigative Excellence
  • Exceptional Lifesaving
  • Community Service
  • Distinguished K9 Team
  • Multi-Agency Collaboration
  • Lifetime Achievement

LEAC bridges communities and business partnerships in both recognizing the law enforcement officers who show a deep commitment to serving our community and honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Moreno Valley Police Department is proud of contributions made by Explorer Post #882 during the 2019 Law Enforcement Appreciation Committee Ceremony. 
Citywide Landscape Improvements Help Keep Moreno Valley Beautiful
As part of our ongoing mission to beautify our community, the City added over 23,000 plants and 130 trees to landscape maintenance districts throughout Moreno Valley. 

In addition, over 1,200 yards of mulch was installed as part of the City’s annual reinvestment into the districts.

Beautification services are funded by property owners within the City’s landscape maintenance districts, and are a significant contribution to our efforts to Keep Moreno Valley Beautiful.

Well maintained landscaping provides identity and character to communities. A well-designed landscape not only adds beauty, but offers an enriched quality of life, improved environmental conditions, and enhanced property values.

For more information regarding neighborhood beautification, please contact the Special Districts Division at (951) 413-3480, or visit Moreno Valley’s Special Districts website .
