When Crime Occurs

If you see a crime in progress, call the police!

Only call 911 from a land line!

From a cell phone call 777-3211 which routes directly to OPD dispatch.

To report a crime that has already happened, call the non-emergency number 777-3333, or fill in OPD's Online Crime Reporting form.  You'll find the link on their Report a Crime page.

Send OPD an Anonymous Tip

Text TIP OAKLANDPD to 888777 from your cell phones

Call OPD's Tip Watch hotline at 855-TIPS-247

From a computer or smartphone:

About Those Car Burglaries

I'd like to quote from today's column by Matier & Ross, in the San Francisco Chronicle:

What goes into the official crime stats?  Police responses and victims' reports.  A 911 call with no followup doesn't count.

Since Matier & Ross are in San Francisco, this is almost certainly San Francisco policy.  I don't know if it is also Oakland policy.  How much do we want to bet that Oakland doesn't use this policy?

Consider that.  You find that your car was broken into, or your house was burgled.  You call OPD (not 911 - call 510-777-3211, because this crime is over and done with.  911 is for crimes in progress.)  and tell the dispatcher.  You may even get an incident number.  If you don't also go to the police web site and report the crime online, there will be no record.  It never happened.

The crime reporting link is on the top of the front page of the Greater Rockridge NCPC web site.  I check it from time to time to make sure they haven't moved it somewhere else.  If you are the victim of a non-violent crime, use this link to report it to the police so it will be counted when they next assign personnel to areas of the city.

Crime Report at April 2016 Meeting

At the April 2016 meeting of the Greater Rockridge Neighborhood Crime Prevention Council, our Community Resource Officer, Anthony Hutzol, did a short presentation with definitions of some commonly misunderstood terms, status of some homeless issues, and an evaluation of crime trends in Oakland's District 2 (North Oakland) over the last 3 years, emphasizing trends in robbery and aggravated assault, plus burglary and grand theft.  Read the presentation yourself at this link:
