Ready for Emergencies?

Are you prepared for emergencies?  Do you know what Oakland and Alameda County provide for both dealing with emergencies and responding to emergencies?  Check out our reference page on Emergency Preparedness and see what your options are.

After the Arrest

Do you ever wonder what happens to someone after the police arrest them?  How does that portion of the criminal justice system work?  The August 13 meeting of the Greater Rockridge NCPC will have 2 speakers on the subject:

A representative from the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office (TBA)

Mr. William Locke, a recently retired Public Defender for Alameda County

The speakers have asked that any questions for them be sent to them at least 2 weeks before the meeting, so they can prepare their responses.  We need your questions by July 30.  The NCPC board already plans to ask two questions:  

  1. How does the District Attorney’s office decide whether to prosecute or not?
  2. What is the Clean Slate program and how does it work?

If you have any other questions about this process, for either speaker, please send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before July 30.

New Meeting Frequency for 2016

The Greater Rockridge Neighborhood Crime Prevention Council  is changing the meeting frequency in 2016.  Instead of meeting monthly, as we have, we will meet in even-numbered months:  February, April, June, August, October, and December.  We will still meet on the second Thursday of the month - our meeting dates are at the foot of the home page.  Unless we announce otherwise, we'll meet in the Rockridge Library conference room.  The February meeting is definite; we aren't sure how the remodel may affect the April meeting.  We hope you will continue to join us.

September NCPC meeting Thursday 9/10

The Greater Rockridge NCPC meeting is coming up Thursday, September 10. Join us at the Rockridge Library conference room (College and Manila), at 7:30 PM, to discuss neighborhood crime and safety issues and hear a short presentation from Cathy Leonard, district 1 representative on the Community Policing Advisory Board. (Ms. Leonard was supposed to appear at the August meeting but had to cancel.)
