The Crescenta Valley Sheriff Support Group held its annual meeting in the boardroom at the CalTech Employees Credit Union.
Outgoing Crescenta Valley Sheriff Support Group President Leo Lesh was presented with a plaque for his two years of service to the board and will remain on the board as the immediate past president. The group then voted to install Len Pieroni as the new president. Pieroni is an engineer at Worley Parsons and he and his wife Brenda are long time residents of La Cañada. Other support group officers include Bobbie Parker as VP, Steve Clement as treasurer and Lynda Bayly as secretary.
During Lesh’s tenure as president, the club made two significant purchases. The group bought a new 4×4 Toyota Tundra pick-up truck that will be used to tow the mobile command post.
The second major purchase was two dirt bikes to help patrol the Angeles National Forest and assist the Montrose Search and Rescue Team.
The Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Support Group helps maintain the important connection between the community and the Sheriff’s Department. They support programs such as STAR, Montrose Search and Rescue Team, Explorer Scouts, civilian Volunteers, Reserves, Mounted Posse, Neighborhood Watch, CERT and Arson Watch. They raise funds to pay for specialized equipment and other programs necessary to operations at the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station.
