Report Traffic Problems

The NCPC has learned that OPD Traffic Division has a phone number citizens can call to report persistent traffic problems:  speeders, dangerous intersections, drivers not yielding to pedestrians.  The number is:

238-3155

This is for reporting ongoing situations; automobile accidents should still be reported directly to the OPD emergency line, 777-3211.  The Traffic Division won't respond instantly but they will put reported situations in their queue and will get to your location as soon as they can.

OPD Security Brochures

Oakland Police Department has made available PDF copies of several of their useful brochures on home and business security.  You can download these or print them out for your own use.  Feel free to share with others.
