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.  For MEDICAL OR FIRE EMERGENCIES ONLY, you can call the Fire Department directly at 510-444-1616.

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.

PayPal Scams through Craigslist

I recently read a discussion on FaceBook started by a friend who is trying to sell a motorcycle on Craigslist, and who got some odd-sounding offers from people out of state.  His friends (including me) all insisted that it sounded fishy, and one poster shared a link to this article about a number of known scams on Craigslist, all of which involve PayPal.  You should read this - you will learn things about doing business through PayPal that you didn't know. I certainly did.  Here's the article link:

Commerce on the internet can be risky.  Be safe out there.
