LIVERMORE HIGH SCHOOL SUSPICIOUS NOTE On 9/17/18 at 11:46 am The Livermore Police Department was contacted by administrators from Livermore High School regarding a suspicious note. Students entered the restroom and located a hand written note that alleged a direct threat to the school. LPD does not take this matter lightly and is working closely with school officials in the furtherance of investigative leads. As a precaution, LPD assigned extra officers to patrol the area of Livermore High School today and will continue to assign extra officers as needed throughout the week. The safety of our children is of the utmost concern for all, and this matter will be investigated to the fullest. Currently, by providing this information we hope to dispel inaccurate rumors that may be circulating. We would like to commend the individuals who came forward and were brave enough to report the incident to school officials. You can support our efforts to ensure campus safety by continuing to message to our students that “if you see something, or know something, say something.” It is through the sharing of information that we can act and work together to keep our campus safe. Any information regarding this incident may be left at the Livermore Police Department-Public Information Officer line at (925) 371-4777.

It is with sadness that we share with the Livermore community the passing of K9 Fin today, due to complications related to old age. Today, with the assistance of Patrol and members of the Honor Guard, Fin was given a police processional with honors from his home to his Veterinarian. Fin was born on June 26, 2007 and retired in June 4, 2017. He was partnered for 1 year with Officer Dave Cerruti (retired) and then was partnered for 7 years with Officer Al Grajeda. Fin was trained in handler protection, narcotics detection, person detection, article detection, tactical and high-risk operations and building searches. During his career Fin was assigned to Patrol, SOU, gang investigations and SWAT. He was instrumental in the arrest of homicide suspects, attempted homicide suspects, burglars, dangerous parolees-at-large, drug dealers stolen vehicle suspects and many others. Fin was an ambassador of LPD who did countless public demonstrations at community events, schools and other special events. K9 Fin will be missed.💙💙

We remember...

The Livermore Police Department is currently conducting a DUI/Driver License checkpoint and would like to remind drivers that DUI doesn’t just mean booze! Please enjoy your weekend responsibly!

The Livermore Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Driver License checkpoint on Saturday, September 8, 2018 in the evening hours. In an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes, DUI checkpoints are conducted to identify offenders and get them off the street, as well as educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving. All too often, members of our community are senselessly injured or killed on local roadways by impaired drivers. This DUI/Driver License checkpoint is an effort to reduce those tragedies, as well as insuring drivers have a valid driver’s license. A major component of these checkpoints is to increase awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and to encourage sober designated drivers. A DUI checkpoint is a proven effective method for achieving this goal. By publicizing these enforcement and education efforts, the Livermore Police Department believes motorists can be deterred from drinking and driving. Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested. Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs – DUI DOESN’T JUST MEAN BOOZE. The public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 9-1-1 if they see a suspected impaired driver. Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Share the road: Highlighting traffic safety efforts for pedestrians ~ September is California Pedestrian Safety Month Livermore, CA – Sept. 1 marks the beginning of Pedestrian Safety Month, with the goal to reduce the numbers of pedestrians being killed and injured on California roadways. The Livermore Police Department, as well state agencies, community partners and law enforcement agencies throughout the state are urging pedestrians and drivers alike to be aware of each other at all times and share the road responsibly. Pedestrian deaths are on the rise both in California and nationally. In 2016, 867 pedestrians were killed and more than 14,000 were injured on California roadways alone. Since 2012, pedestrian deaths have increased by nearly 33 percent, growing substantially faster than any other type of traffic-related death. Over the course of the past three years Livermore has witnessed 6 pedestrians killed and another 57 pedestrians injured. In order to reverse this upward trend of pedestrian injuries and deaths, Livermore Police Department is joining OTS in their efforts to remind the public that “Pedestrians Don’t Have Armor.” The campaign highlights the importance of pedestrian safety, whether one is on foot or behind the wheel. The campaign features everyday pedestrians clad in body armor made from car parts, a symbol that in real life, pedestrians don’t have any protection when hit by a vehicle, no matter who is at fault. “Pedestrian safety goes both ways,” OTS Director Rhonda Craft said. “Whether you are walking or driving, there is a shared responsibility when it comes to looking out for one another.” The Livermore Police Department, OTS, and other community partners will use Pedestrian Safety Month as a way to educate the public about traffic rights, rules and responsibilities, as well as identify trouble spots where there are higher incidents of pedestrian versus vehicle collisions, To ensure we can all get where we need to go safely, the Livermore Police Department offers tips for pedestrians and drivers. Pedestrians • Be obvious and predictable, crossing at crosswalks or intersections only, walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible if there is no sidewalk. • Make eye contact with drivers; never assume a driver sees you. • Look left-right-left before you step into the crosswalk: having a green light or the “WALK” signal does not mean it is safe to cross. • Look for cars backing up, including white backup lights or signs the vehicle is running. Don’t dart out between parked cars. • Avoid distractions. Don’t walk and use your phone at the same time. • Wear bright clothing during the day and reflective materials (or use a flashlight) at night. Drivers • Be alert for pedestrians, especially at intersections and crosswalks where they have the right of way. • Put down the cell phone and just drive. • Use extra caution when backing up. Look for bicyclists or pedestrians who may be approaching. • Be patient and courteous. Wait for pedestrians to cross street or intersection before proceeding. Funding for this pedestrian safety campaign is provided to the Livermore Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

LIVERMORE POLICE DEPARTMENT RECEIVES GRANT FOR THE ENFORCEMENT OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL (ABC) LAWS The Livermore Police Department has been awarded a $29,332 grant from the California Office of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) for a year-long program of special enforcements and public awareness. The Livermore Police Department will use the funding as part of the city’s ongoing commitment to provide alcohol related education to both consumers and licensees. Activities that the grant will fund include: Educational presentations to both consumers and licensees. Enforcement operations related to the serving of minors and an overall education toward responsible alcohol service. Our goal is to utilize the ABC grant for the purpose of identifying problematic ABC licensed establishment. We will conduct minor decoy operations, provide additional trainings for our sworn personnel, coordinate LEAD (Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs) classes and conduct IMPACT (Informed Merchants Preventing Alcohol-Related Crime Tendencies) inspections. Additionally, we will continue to monitor special events where alcohol is served in order to avoid over-service and service to minors. The Livermore Police Department brings this grant to the public’s attention in order to demonstrate our continued dedication to keeping the residents of Livermore safe.

EXPECT TRAFFIC DELAYS – LABOR DAY WEEKEND AT THE S.F. PREMUIM OUTLETS The Livermore Police Department would like to advise the community to expect lengthy traffic delays while attempting to drive to the S.F. Premium Outlets this weekend due to the amount of visitors expected to shop at the outlets. In an effort to reduce the traffic congestion and the amount of time it takes for visitors to get into the outlet mall parking lot, the Las Positas College parking lot has been designated as an extended parking lot for S.F. Premium Outlets patrons. For those visitors who park at Las Positas College, free shuttle buses will be on hand to shuttle you over to the mall. If you park at the college, you are expected to be at the mall within 45 minutes. Those who elect to park at the outlet mall, you can expect up to a 4 hour wait time to get into the mall parking lot due to the number of expected visitors and the amount of congestion. Therefore, the Livermore Police Department would encourage people to utilize the Las Positas College parking and the free shuttle bus service that will service those parking at the college.

There will be a training exercise at the lab tonight. Attention LLNL neighbors: A staged security exercise will take place within the Lab gates tonight (Thurs., 8/23) between 6-10pm. You may hear the sounds of blank ammunition or other exercise activities and see emergency vehicles moving around. If you have questions or want additional information, you can contact the Lab Public Affairs Office at (925) 422-4599.

*** Back to School Safety Tips *** It’s back to school time and the Livermore Police Department wants to remind our community members of the importance of driving safely around and through school areas. On the morning of Monday, August 20, 2018, students in the Livermore Valley Unified School District will begin their 2018-2019 school year. Please be aware of the following: • Students should never jaywalk under any circumstances. • Students should not cross against red lights, whether walking or on bikes/scooters/skateboards. • Parents/Guardians must keep an eye out for children at all times. • Parents/Guardians should not stop vehicles in the middle of crosswalks or allow students to exit their vehicles in the middle of the intersection. • Obey all normal traffic signs and regulations, as well as any signs or directions that are established by the school on their grounds and in their lots. • Avoid loading or unloading children at locations across the street from the school. This forces youngsters to unnecessarily cross busy streets—often mid-block rather than at a crosswalk. • Students should not push one another into the street and parents/guardians should look out for this very dangerous activity. • Prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing. Drive with caution when you see yellow hazard warning lights are flashing on a moving or stopped bus. • Stop for a school bus with its red overhead lights flashing, regardless of the direction from which the driver is approaching. Drivers must not proceed until the school bus resumes motion and the red lights stop flashing, or until signaled by the school bus driver to proceed. The most important safety reminder is simple: There is no situation or circumstance where getting to or from school is so important that you cannot take the time to do it safely and within the law. Have a fun and safe new school year!

This Labor Day, and Every Day: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Livermore, Calif. — As we enter the final stretch of summer spending time at the pool or barbequing with friends and family, the Livermore Police Department is driving home the importance of celebrating responsibly by not driving, or riding a motorcycle, impaired. From Aug. 17 through Sept. 3, the Livermore Police Department is participating in a high-visibility national enforcement campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. During this period, Police and Sheriff’s Departments statewide, along with the California Highway Patrol, will increase the number of officers on the road to stop suspected drunk or drug impaired drivers and motorcyclists. If you are caught driving or riding impaired, you will be pulled over and arrested. The Livermore Police Department will have a special emphasis during this 18-day mobilization to enforce all traffic violations by deploying DUI Saturation Patrols starting on August 17th, 2018. The enforcement campaign runs through the Labor Day holiday weekend, which is one of the deadliest times of year in terms of alcohol-involved traffic deaths. Sadly, one-third of all traffic deaths involve drunk drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 10,497 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes, or one person every 50 minutes. The Livermore Department will show zero tolerance for impaired driving or riding and joins efforts by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to educate drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning label, you may be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing and result in a DUI, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs. In the ten years from 2005-2015, the percentage of drivers in fatal crashes with an impairing drug other than alcohol in their system has risen from 26.2 percent to 42.6 percent. As far back as 2012, a roadside survey in California showed more drivers tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). During this national enforcement campaign, there will also be increased state and national messages about the dangers of riding impaired, which combined with enforcement, aims to drastically reduce drunk or drug impaired riding on our nation’s roadways. Motorcycles require specific training and skill. When a rider adds alcohol, marijuana or impairing prescription medication to the mix, it is not only illegal, but increases the risky nature of riding a motorcycle. There are so many options out there to get home safely. There is no excuse for getting behind the wheel when you are impaired. To avoid a DUI and putting others, and yourself, at risk, the Livermore Department has a few tips to stay safe on the roads: • Always designate a sober driver. • Use public transportation or a ride sharing service to get home. • Have a friend or family member who is about to drive buzzed or impaired? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get them home safely. • Report drunk drivers - call 911. Funding for this DUI operation is provided to the Livermore Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
