Summer 2021 Recreation Guide
The Community Services Department is excited to announce the arrival of the Summer 2021 Recreation Guide. This will be the first printed guide since receiving an Award of Excellence in Marketing and Communications for the Recreation Guide through the California Parks and Recreation Society.
We are truly honored to receive this award and would like to thank our entire Graphics department for their creative input and dedication to their craft.
Look for the Summer Recreation Guide in your mailbox starting April 23, and registration will open on Monday, April 26 at 8 a.m. on the recreation website.

National Public Safety Telecommunications Week
Every year during the second week of April, public safety telecommunications personnel are honored. This week-long event, initially set up in 1981 by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office in California, is a time to celebrate and thank those who dedicate their lives to serving the public. The Escondido Police Department Communications Center manages 911 calls for both police and fire service, which is rare. Our communications center is a busy place to work and our staff is amazing. Great job team!

April Is Distracted Driving Awareness Month
Throughout the month of April, the Escondido Police Department will have additional officers on patrol specifically looking for drivers who violate the state’s hand-free cell phone law.
