The race starts at 7:00 a.m. in downtown Livermore and should conclude by 11:00 a.m. Over 4,000 runners are anticipated for this year’s Livermore Half Marathon. In the past, runners from across the country representing over 25 different states have registered and competed in the race. The race course will start downtown traveling east from the 2100 block of First St. to southbound McLeod St. to westbound Second St. From Second St. the runners will turn south onto S “L” St. and continue south on Arroyo Rd.

The runners will exit the park onto Arroyo Rd. where they will travel north to the bike path near Wetmore Rd. The race will then turn eastbound onto Marina Ave. to Wente St. Runners will travel northbound onto the Concannon Blvd. running trails, and under Conconnan Blvd. to Robertson Park Rd. via the trail. The race will continue onto northbound Arroyo Rd. to S. “L” St. to eastbound Second St., concluding on First St. near McLeod St. The first runner is expected to be at the finish line around 8am, and all runners should be off the course by 11 am.

Are you being contacted by someone representing a “family member” asking you to wire money immediately for an emergency? Or by the IRS demanding a payment or you’ll be arrested? If so, you are probably being scammed. The Livermore Police Department would like to remind everyone to protect themselves and not to fall victim to popular scams such as these. NEVER give account information or credit card numbers over the phone. DO NOT wire money, send a check or money order by overnight delivery or courier, or purchase credit cards or gift cards to use as payment. The scammer’s goal is to trick you into sending money before you realize it’s a scam. Our officers continue to take reports from community members who have been victimized or have received calls from scammers posing as the IRS or a desperate family member. These calls are from professional scammers. The scammers are convincing in what they say and even use names of actual IRS representatives, law enforcement officials, and family members, making it difficult for the victim to verify the validity of the call. Scammers often use Caller ID Spoofing and/or phished email addresses to give the appearance they are legitimate employees of the IRS or other agencies. If you receive a call from someone claiming to be the IRS, don’t give them ANY information and hang up immediately. The IRS will never demand a payment over the phone or ask you to pay with a prepaid credit or debit card. For more information on Tax Scams click here. If you receive a call from someone claiming to be a friend or family member asking you to send them money, resist the urge to act immediately and verify the story with someone else in your family or circle of friends, even if you’ve been told to keep it a secret. Professional scammers may have viewed your social media sites to obtain names of actual family members to make the call appear more authentic. For more information on Family Emergency Scams click here Please help us in sharing this information with your family members, friends, and coworkers. Elderly community members are often the target of these types of scams.

The student will also participate in ride alongs and will also get to sit with a dispatcher and hear the 911 calls come in.

Organized crime type game played by Livermore and Granada High School seniors. The Livermore Police Department was recently notified that students from Livermore High School have begun playing a game called Spy versus Spy, which was formally called Assassin. Assassin or Spy versus Spy is a game organized by high school seniors. Those who wish to participate “buy in”, form a team, and receive another senior team who they "assassinate" using mock weapons. The game goes on until there is only one senior team left, and the final team wins a cash prize. The game is not a school-endorsed event and participants play the game away from school grounds. In playing the game, seniors follow each other looking for an opportunity to assassinate their target including hiding in bushes outside their target’s home. Players can “assassinate” their target anywhere, which can lead to many problems. In the past, the LPD has received reports of armed subjects in the community, reckless driving, suspicious persons, and prowlers, all while the teens are playing this game. Because LPD responds to all of these calls anticipating that they are true emergencies, these calls can tie up valuable resources and incur considerable expense to the City. The game has resulted in vehicle collisions and students injured while playing the game. The students commonly use nerf type guns and markers to eliminate their opponents. LPD wishes to educate the Livermore community and the parents of students about the dangers of participating in a game of this type. Parents please talk to your teens, we don’t want to see some type of tragic event happen due to teens playing a game.

Happy Valentine's Day from all of us at the Livermore Police Department. May you enjoy your day with loved ones!

Boy Scouts of America and Explorers Today, February 8th is National Boy Scout Day. In honor of our scouts, we would like to salute those “scouts” who are currently linked to the Livermore Police Department. It is a little known fact, that the Police Explorer programs we have throughout the country are associated to the Boy Scouts of America. Founded in 1973 through the Learning for Life subsidiary of the Boy Scouts of America, the explorer programs we are all familiar with were founded upon basic scouting principles. The purpose of the Learning for Life subsidiary is to promote experiences that will prepare our youth for their role within our society. We want our participants to develop self-confidence, self-esteem and motivation. As a result, our LPD explorers participate in a variety of community related programs to include downtown festivals and events. Additionally, our explorers compete in explorer competitions where they often place, if not win their event. We appreciate our explorers and recognize the importance of this mentorship program as many of our current officers were once former explorers themselves. So please take the time to thank your scout as they learn to become positive members of our society.

**2-Minute Safety Tip** Driving in Inclement Weather: With the rainy season upon us, the Livermore Police Department wanted to provide you with a video on driving in inclement weather. Now is a good time to check your vehicle and ensure everything is working appropriately. - Check your tire tread - Check your windshield wipers - Check your headlights - Check your brakes When you find yourself driving in the rain, just slow down. Remember, when your windshield wipers are on, your lights have to be on also. Be extra cautious in wet weather, slow down, avoid hard breaking, and avoid turning abruptly. Avoid cruise control! Cruise control can cause skidding, and loss of tire tractions on wet or icy roads. When driving in the fog, don’t use your high beams and slow down. If you can’t see where you are going, don’t stop in the roadway. Slow down and drive to a safe place to pull over and wait for the weather to pass. In inclement weather, most importantly, be alert!
