Officer Losier and Sergeant Homayoun will be handing out candy and stickers at NewPark Mall, from 3:00 PM to 6:00PM.

Halloween 🎃 🎃🎃 👻👻👻 safety tips Halloween night is CREEPING up on us! The Newark Police Department wishes everyone a safe and happy Halloween experience. Take a minute to read these 5 tips to make sure you and your family stay safe while trick-or-treating. 1. Trick-or-treat with trusted neighbors. Don’t go by yourself. Stick with a group. 2. Dress like a ghoul or goblin, but stay safe. Make sure costumes and candy bags or pails are reflective. Costumes shouldn’t drag too far on the ground to avoid tripping, and masks, hats, and shoes should be well-fitting. 3. If you plan to be driving during trick-or-treat hours, watch for children walking on roadways, medians, and curbs. Be sure to enter and exit driveways carefully. 4. Use well-marked routes to get to the candy. Always use the sidewalk, and do not cut across yards or use alleys. Wherever possible, cross the road at a crosswalk. 5. When in doubt, throw the candy out. Avoid candy that has loose wrappings, is completely unwrapped, has puncture holes, or is homemade and not factory-wrapped. Small children should not be allowed hard candy, which could be a choking hazard. Some of our officers will have candy with them. Don’t be surprise if they stop and hand out candy to you! Boo safe out there!

Huge congrats to Officer Alexandria Riddles, who successfully completed the Field Training Program last night. She will begin her solo patrol duties next week. Congrats!

Lunch with a Cop was a major success! Thank you to those that came by and had a meal with our officers. Stay tuned for the next event!

We wanted to share some information posted by Livermore PD.

Our motor officer may have missed you, but our cameras did not. There’s a ticket on its way for you.

Smoke in the area is from Solano Co. fire. There are "NO" active fires in the Newark area. Only call dispatch is you see an actual fire. Thank you.

Range Day for the 20th Citizens Police Academy. Everyone came in with different levels of experience with firearms, but they all left with a little more knowledge and had fun in the process! Great work everyone!

See you tomorrow! Starbucks 35040 Newark Blvd

During the month of October, the Newark Police Department (NPD) will be participating in the Pink Patch Project. The Pink Patch Project is a campaign to bring awareness to the fight against breast cancer and support those currently battling this horrible disease. Our department is currently selling Pink Patches for $10 each. If you are interested in purchasing a Pink Patch, please contact Dispatcher Paige at or call NPD Dispatch at 510-578-4237 and mention the Pink Patch Project. Cash only, please. Proceeds will be donated to the Bay Area Cancer Connections, a non-profit organization in Palo Alto, CA.

To show our support, officers of the Newark Police Department will wear the pink shoulder patches on our uniforms during the month of October. We hope this will bring awareness within the community about the importance of early detection and the fight against breast cancer. #PinkPatchProject
