Recently we’ve received questions in regards to the “Gore Point” sign as you enter the Posey Tube. This sign was placed temporarily to keep motorists from driving through the gore point to go around others to save time. The gore point is the triangular shaped zone with solid white striped lines that aids in merging traffic entering the tunnel. Driving through gore points are inherently dangerous as it can lead to traffic collisions. The following video shows how NOT to use a gore point.

As the holiday season approaches, an increase in crime may been seen, particularly car burglaries. This increase in car burglaries is being observed across the state. Alameda Police is looking to encourage everyone to NOT FEED THE THIEVES, as these crimes are usually crimes of opportunity. Today, the Alameda Police Department’s C.O.P.P.S Unit walked through various Downtown Alameda parking areas and made shocking discoveries. While many vehicles were secured (some were not), their contents were on full display. Items that were discovered included, multiple backpacks, laptops, purses, golf club sets, shopping bags and debit cards. Even things that may seem small, like a cellphone charger or a GPS mount, can give the impression that your vehicle may have something of value in it. We are asking all residents not only to lock your doors and windows but please do not leave ANYTHING of value in plain view for thieves. These photos are meant to be shared in order to educate the community on taking the extra steps to keep their vehicles and belongings safe. As the holiday season draws closer, it may be tempting to leave bags/gifts in your car for ‘just a second,’ but it is not worth it.

***TRAFFIC ALERT - ROAD CLOSURE**** Due to tonight's Island Bowl, the 1800 block of Walnut Street (between Clement and Buena Vista Avenue) will be closed starting at 6:00 PM. We advise using alternative routes as heavy delays are expected on both Clement and Buena Vista. With increased foot traffic, please use extra caution when driving in the areas around Thompson Field.

Tip # 5 Protect your cloud. One of the most effective steps you can take to protect your cloud account is to make sure you are using two-step verification. In addition, always be sure you know exactly who you are sharing your files with. It is very easy to accidentally share your files with the entire Internet when you think you are only sharing them with specific individuals. #NationalCyberSecurityAwarenessMonth #NCSAM

Tip #4 Watch what you’re sharing on social networks. Criminals can befriend you and easily gain access to a shocking amount of information—where you go to school, where you work, when you’re on vacation—that could help them gain access to more valuable data. Especially be careful when sharing your location on social media, this can make your home a target when you are away. #NationalCyberSecurityAwarenessMonth #NCSAM You can find tip #3 on our Twitter page @alamedapd

Meet Beau, he was born drug and alcohol exposed but was adopted from Alameda Foster Care at birth. Beau has autism and a myriad of other health issues. He is non-verbal yet extremely caring and compassionate, however, on this particular day Beau was very nervous about going to Safety Town because he had to ride on the bus. The Alameda Police Officers and Firefighters in attendance noticed his anxiety and were super supportive and made sure to make the day really exciting and fun for Beau! Beau's favorite part of the day was getting to sit in the police car. To Beau and his family, 'thank you' for sharing your story. We are glad to have been apart of such a special day for you. If you ever want to sit in a patrol vehicle again, just let us know. #alameda #alamedapd #safetytown #autismawareness #alamedapolice #alamedapolicedepartment #throwbackthursday
