One of Monrovia's police officers, Sgt. Dan Verna, was shot twice early Sunday morning while attempting to arrest a suspected burglar. He is doing well but is still in the hospital.
As I've said before, this website is meant to focus on the positive images, desirable aspects and the sense of community in Monrovia. It is in no small part that, through the efforts of the Monrovia police department, those depictions are even possible.
The Monrovia police have had a lot to deal with lately in addition to their day to day duties. I want to take this opportunity to thank Sgt. Dan Verna, the entire Monrovia police department, the CHP and all the law enforcement organizations that have provided support recently.
Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery.
