When Crime Occurs

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

Only call 911 from a land line!

From a cell phone call 510-777-3211 which routes directly to OPD dispatch. 

To report a crime that has already happened:

Call the non-emergency number 510-777-3333, or fill in OPD's Online Crime Reporting form.  You'll find the link on their Report a Crime page.  We've been warned that the form is easier to fill out on a laptop or desktop than it is on a smartphone.

For MEDICAL OR FIRE EMERGENCIES ONLY, you can call the Fire Department directly at 510-444-1616.  They may respond faster than OPD.

The monthly crime statistics for beats 12Y and 13X, covering December 2023 (revised 2/6/2024) and January 2024, are now available on http://rockridgencpc.com, under Resources > Crime Stats and Maps > Rockridge Crime Trends 2023-2024.   Here is the direct link to the page:

January 2024   http://tinyurl.com/2p8y84nc

For once, it looks like the crime report counts for December 2023 didn’t change between January and February.  Also, December crime was substantially lower than November.  In both cases 12Y had 88 reports and 13X had 28.  As usual, auto-related property crimes were the largest category, followed by ordinary property crimes.  Both numbers were substantially lower than in November (12Y was 137, 13X was 25); in fact, auto-related crimes in 13X didn’t change, 11 in each month.  Sadly, crimes against the person doubled in 12Y from November to December.  Quality of life crimes were about the same in 12Y and 13X between the months. 

I’m still concerned about the low numbers of crime in 13X, especially for quality of life crimes like vandalism.  There were only 3 incidents in 13X in December, after 2 in November.  It’s not that I wish crime on beat 13X; it’s that I’m afraid people aren’t reporting it because they expect no one will respond.

The January report was also very low, 69 reports for 12Y and 15 for 13X, including no reported quality of life crimes in 13X.  I’ll be interested to see what the January numbers look like in March.
