Registration deadline: WEDNESDAY 6/20!) o Fun AND educational for the whole family Some hard facts: Did you know that more than 95% of all children’s car seats are installed and used incorrectly in Alameda County? And that children seated in a booster seat in the back seat of the car are 45% less likely to be injured in a crash than children using a seat belt alone? Big kids use belt positioning booster seats (often just called boosters) to stay safe in cars. Even though they might try to convince you otherwise, kids who have outgrown their car seats are just not ready for a seat belt alone. Here are a few tips to make sure your child is safe in a booster seat: Top Tips for Using Booster Seats • A booster seat provides a step between a car seat with a harness and a seat belt alone. It boosts the child for a safer and more comfortable fit of the adult seat belt. • Make sure your child has outgrown the weight or height limits allowed in the forward-facing car seat. He must also be mature enough to ride without a harness. What does “mature enough” mean? He needs to stay in the booster seat the entire ride with the seat belt properly fitted across the shoulder and below the hips. • When your child is seated in the booster seat, make sure the lap and shoulder belts fit. The seat belt must lie flat across your child’s chest, on the bony part of the shoulder and low on the hips or upper thighs. • Do not place the shoulder belt under the child’s arm or behind the child’s back. • Older kids get weighed and measured less often than babies, so check your child’s growth a few times a year. For most kids, they will be between ages 8 to 12 years old before they are ready for the seat belt alone. • Be sure you ask about booster use if your child is in a carpool. So, spread the word to your friends and family!! We hope to see you on Saturday!

PARK WISELY! We are pleased to announce that over the next two weeks, we will be conducting targeted parking enforcement. Parking violations are one of the most common complaints and frustrations we hear about in Fremont. While we don’t have a parking enforcement unit, we do have very dedicated Community Service Officers who in between their regular duties, try to respond to all of the complaints in a timely manner. Starting Sunday, May 27 and continuing through the end of the following week, we will conduct targeted parking enforcement throughout the City of Fremont. Most violations carry a $63 fine for the first offense, and for the 2nd offense of same violation (within 12 months), the penalty is doubled ($123). And the 3rd offense of same violation within 12 months, the penalty is five times the original amount ($303). In response to feedback and common complaints, these are some of the sections we’ll be targeting our enforcement efforts around over the next two weeks: · If your vehicle registration is expired, keep it off public roadways until renewed, or you can be cited. And, if registration is expired over 6 months, a vehicle can be towed…immediately. · 22514 CVC – Fire hydrant parking (“No person shall stop, park, or leave standing any vehicle within 15 feet of a fire hydrant…”). The curb is SOMETIMES painted red, but most of the time it is not. So, please steer clear of all hydrants! · 10.05.630 FMC – No Stopping Any Time Check for signs posted in area. Just because other vehicles are parked there, doesn’t mean it’s okay! · 18.183.180 (G) FMC – Vehicles over 20’ in length (or vehicle/trailer over 20’ combined) are prohibited on residential streets. Unattached boats/trailers also prohibited on city streets AND on private property if in public view. While we like feedback on Facebook, we ask that if you have a specific parking complaint you’d like us to look into, please email TrafficUnit@Fremont.gov or fill out the traffic complaint form on our web-site at www.fremontpolice.org. - Thank you! #StaySafeFremont

Multi-agency high priority investigation leads to the arrest of suspect in May 9th Fremont armed robbery incident On May 9, 2018, at approximately 8:40 p.m., an armed robbery occurred at the Lowe's Home Improvement store located in the 43000 block of Pacific Commons Blvd in Fremont. As the suspect approached the register area of the store he lifted the front of his shirt and grabbed a black semi-automatic handgun from his waistband. The store employees became fearful and backed away from the register for their personal safety. The suspect verbally threatened to shoot the employees if they didn’t back away. The suspect picked up the two items he had been carrying and quickly exited the store. Store employees and witnesses saw the suspect fleeing the scene in what was described as a white colored 4-door Sedan. On May 18, 2018, at approximately 4:00 p.m. two victims (a 93 year old and a 64 year old) were violently robbed in the City of Concord. During the commission of that crime, the 93 year old woman, was knocked to the ground, suffering significant injuries and remains hospitalized. Very clear surveillance images of the suspect and suspect vehicle were captured. The images were distributed to local police agencies and the public in an effort to identify the suspect. The suspect depicted in the surveillance appeared to match the distinctive description of the suspect in the May 9 armed robbery in our City. In response to the photos of the suspect being released, the Concord Police Department received numerous calls and tips from community members. The information assisted detectives with the Concord Police Department to identify the suspect as Otto Halafihi (29 y/o male; Oakland resident). Concord Police Detectives reached out to the Fremont Police Department Crimes Against Person(s) unit to provide information on the suspect in common. Arrest warrants for Halafihi were authored for both the Concord and Fremont robbery cases. Detectives from Concord PD, Fremont PD and Oakland PD jointly coordinated efforts to locate and safely arrest Halafiti. On the late evening hours of Wednesday, May 23, 2018, Halafihi turned himself in to Concord PD Detectives at a police sub-station in Patterson, California. Video surveillance evidence, victim statements, witness identifications, license plate reader information and suspect statements tied Halafihi to both the Concord and Fremont crimes. "We wish to thank the members of the Concord Police Department detective unit for reaching out so quickly regarding this violent and armed robbery suspect," said Fremont Police Lieutenant Michael Tegner. "This was a great effort by many to solve these cases so quickly and safely apprehend the suspect. Further, the use of community-based video surveillance cameras and automated license plate readers again provided invaluable evidence in the Fremont robbery." Halafihi has been transported back to Contra Costa County where he is being charged with Robbery and Elder Abuse for the Concord robberies. Halafihi is also being held on the Fremont robbery warrant. The Fremont armed robbery case will be presented to the Alameda County District Attorney for charging on May 25, 2018. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to please call the Fremont Police Department’s Investigative Unit at 510-790-6900 or email Detective Gebhardt at Mgebhardt@fremont.gov. The Fremont Police Department will also accept anonymous tips. Text TIP FREMONTPD followed by your message to 888-777, or sent a tip via the web at https://local.nixle.com/tip/alert/6216337.

Chain snatch robbery suspect in May 6 gas station incident identified and charged by Alameda County District Attorney's Office. On May 6, 2018, at approximately 4:35 p.m., Fremont Police Department dispatch services received a 911 call reporting a strong-armed robbery incident at a gas station in the 39000 block of Fremont Blvd. Fremont patrol officers were immediately dispatched and arrived a short time later. Upon their arrival, officers determined a female victim had been assaulted, thrown to the ground, and robbed of her gold necklace. The victim also sustained injuries to her person based on the severity of the assault. Detectives from the Fremont Police Department’s Investigations Unit, Street Crimes Unit and Special Investigations Unit coordinated efforts to locate the suspect. On May 9, video surveillance was obtained from the business which provided detectives with a good description of the suspect and related vehicle. Based upon the surveillance video detectives identified the male suspect as 22 year old Jermaine Smith. Shortly after identifying Smith, Fremont PD detectives were informed Smith had been arrested on May 11, by the Oakland Police Department for felony evading and was in custody. On May 18, 2018, the case was submitted to the Alameda County District Attorney for review and charging. Jermaine Smith was charged with one felony count of PC 211 – robbery. Smith is also on two separate felony probations in Alameda County, one of which is for robbery. “This was a terrific joint effort by members from several specialty units working together within the Fremont Police Department to identify the suspect responsible for this incident,” said Fremont Police Lieutenant Michael Tegner. “This arrest is good progress in the recent incidents our community has experienced and our detectives remain committed to investigating these crimes.” Anyone with information about this case is asked to please contact Fremont Detective Brent Butcher at (510) 790-6800 or bbutcher@fremont.gov. We also accept anonymous tips. Please text TIP FREMONTPD followed by your message to 888-777, or via the web at https://local.nixle.com/tip/alert/6216337.
