Safety Presentations - by appointment and as workload permits, Area Coordinator team members will also work with you to do presentations on personal, home or business safety and ways to deter or prevent crime in our community.

Team members can also come to your home or business and conduct a free security assessment using the concepts of 
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). The team member can provide feedback and recommendations on deterring and reducing the liklihood of becoming a victim of burglary. Please call (510) 981-5806.

Vacation Watch  - We provide extra attention to your home or business while your away on vacation or business. We will make sure the beat officers are aware and keep a watchful eye your home or business while you are gone. Please call us at 981-5806 to notify us when you are away. We ask that when possible,  you call at least five or more days in advance of your departure.
