Livermore Police Department News

Summer is here and as a reminder, please do not leave your pets in your vehicles unattended.

The Livermore Police Department recently reintroduced its “Speed Watch” program. This program was designed to help reduce and identify areas of concern relating to speed on our city streets. It is staffed by trained Livermore Police Volunteers, who respond to various streets where residents have expressed concern of excessive speeds in their neighborhood. The volunteers use radar guns and document vehicles traveling in excess of 10 MPH of the posted speed limit. The vehicles license plate, make and model of the vehicle as well as the time and location of the speed infraction is then reported to the Livermore Police Department’s Traffic Sergeant. A letter is then mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle reminding them to please slow down. Since the inception of the program, the Speed Watch Volunteers have been deployed to over 15 locations and have proved to be effective in reducing speed throughout the city.

LIVERMORE 4th of July Downtown There will be a community fireworks display held in downtown Livermore on the 4th of July. This event is expected to be well attended and LPD wants to provide information to assist our community members in enjoying the show. Several roadways will be closed in the downtown core to assure the safety of community members walking in the area, and those viewing the fireworks show. The roadway closures will begin at 4:00 pm. First St. will be closed between Old First St and South “L” St. Railroad Ave. will be closed between Maple St. and South “L” St. Maple St. will be closed between Third St. and Railroad Ave. S. Livermore Ave. will be closed between Second St. and Chestnut St. These roadways are expected to be closed until 11:00 pm. The parking garage will be closed to vehicles early Wednesday afternoon until approximately 11:00 pm. Vehicles may park in the garage prior to its closure, but will not be able to leave the garage until the road closures have been lifted. The fireworks show will begin at around 9:20 pm and will last approximately twenty minutes. Community members wishing to view the fireworks display are encouraged to congregate on the closed roadways of Railroad Ave. between S. Livermore Ave and South “L” St. and on Maple St. between First St. and Third St. These should be the prime viewing locations. Community members can bring chairs and set them up on the closed roadways. The fireworks display will not be a high aerial show; instead it will consist of concentrated low level fireworks that will provide a spectacular show for those in the prime viewing locations. Community members wanting to view the fireworks from other than the prime viewing locations should select a location within a few blocks of the parking garage, with visibility of the top of the downtown parking structure. Traffic delays are expected on all roadways surrounding downtown from 4:00 pm until 11:00 pm. Community members are encouraged to walk to the downtown area or use public transportation. WHEELS busses will be running on the 4th of July with service to the transit center in downtown. Those not wanting to access the downtown area should use Fourth St. or Portola Ave. to travel across town. Consumption of alcohol and possession of open containers of alcohol, in public places is not allowed in Livermore. Please do not bring alcohol to the fireworks event. All fireworks are illegal in the City of Livermore. This includes “Safe and Sane” type fireworks that may be legal to purchase in other cities. The Livermore Police Department will have extra officers working on the Fourth of July, and these officers will be looking for alcohol and fireworks violations. We thank you in advance for helping ensure this 4th of July is safe for everyone.

On Thursday June 6th, Livermore PD Officer Tyler Sharp was awarded with his third “10851 pin.” “10851” is the Vehicle Code section for a stolen vehicle. The California Highway Patrol recognizes officers who excel in locating stolen vehicles and arresting suspects in possession of stolen vehicles. In order to receive a “10851 pin” an officer must within a twelve month period make six separate arrests of suspects possessing a stolen vehicle, or recover a total of twelve stolen vehicles with at least three of those vehicles being occupied with a suspect. This is Officer Sharp’s third year in a row that he has received this prestigious honor, which reflects well on his skills and efforts as an auto theft investigator while assigned to Patrol. Between May 30th 2017 and April 6th 2018, Officer Sharp was responsible for the recovery of twelve stolen vehicles. Five of those twelve recoveries were occupied vehicles where the suspect was arrested. Congratulations to Officer Sharp on a job well done!

This Memorial Day, the Livermore Police Department would like to reflect on the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who died while serving our country. If you have a loved one who paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedoms, please feel free to pay tribute to them with a photo or a few words in the comments section below.

Please remember to buckle up!

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, but along with barbecues and vacations, it marks the start of the worst season for traffic fatalities. The National Safety Council estimates 402 people may die on U.S. roads this Memorial Day holiday period. Holidays like this are often cause for celebrations involving alcohol consumption, a major contributing factor to motor vehicle crashes. Nationwide, alcohol-impaired fatalities in 2016 represented 36% of fatalities involved an alcohol-impaired driver. This Memorial Day weekend, celebrate responsibly and kick the summer off right! If you drink, don’t drive. Arrange a designated driver or other form of transportation in advance.

On Tuesday afternoon, one of our detectives attended a meeting of the California School Employee Association Retirees and gave a presentation on various scams that often target our senior population. The detective provided examples of how to recognize these scams and how to avoid falling victim to scam artists.

Seat Belts Save Lives From May 21nd to June 3rd, State and local law enforcement agencies across the country are stepping up enforcement to encourage seat belt use. In 2016 alone, seat belts saved nearly 15,000 lives. But if everyone involved in a crash had been wearing seat belts in 2016, we could have saved an additional 2,500 lives. That’s why Livermore Police Officers will be increasing their seat belt enforcement efforts during Click It or Ticket. We want you wearing seat belt; you don’t want a ticket. Let’s make everyone happy, and more importantly, let’s keep everyone safe, by always buckling up. #OTS #savelives #buckleup

Over the weekend our Volunteers launched a new Child ID program. The purpose is to photograph and fingerprint the child and give the information to the parent in case of an emergency. We do not store or share the data collected, it is immediately erased upon downloading the information onto a CD for the parent. We will slowly be using this new program at local events until we get more of our volunteers trained. For more information on the system you can visit the website at http://www.ezchildid.com/
