Nonemergency responses

May 7: Security forces responded to a warrant’s hit for failure to appear on a DUI from Avondale Police Department on an individual in Bldg. 343. The subject was transported to Bldg. 179 where Avondale police took control.

May 10: Security forces responded to a report of shoplifting at Bldg. 1540. Security forces viewed the security video tape and verified the subject departed without rendering full payment. The subject was previously processed for the same offense on May 19, 2009, and was issued a revocation of exchange privileges letter. Glendale police took control.

May 12: Security forces responded to an individual who failed to follow proper installation entry procedures at South Gate. The individual claimed to not be familiar with Luke Air Force Base, saw a detour sign and thought the installation entry control point was further up the road. The individual was briefed on proper installation entry procedures and released on the individual’s own recognizance.

Alarm activations

Security forces responded to six alarm activations on base.

Tip of the week

Regarding emergency vehicles:

• When driving and an emergency vehicle approaches, use the turn signal, slow down and pull over to the side of the road as quickly and safely as possible.

• When the emergency vehicle passes, engage the left turn signal and pull back into traffic when it’s safe to do so. Avoid rushing back into traffic. It is better to be safe than to keep the same place in the flow of traffic.

• When yielding to emergency vehicles do not pull over and keep the speed at or near the speed limit. This causes the emergency vehicle to take longer to pass you.

• If an emergency vehicle approaches while on a curve or hill, do not stop on the curve or hill. At a normal speed, get beyond this area to a flat or straight stretch of the road.
