Pleasanton Police Department News

Last week students from Foothill High School and Village High School began a two day event called Every 15 Minutes. Every 15 Minutes is a high impact anti-DUI educational program which derives its name from the frequency at which a person is killed in an alcohol or drug related collision in the United States. The program is designed to teach teenagers who drive about the dangers and consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Each year one of the local high schools participates in the program, rotating between locations near Amador Valley and Foothill High Schools. The event takes over a year to organize and plan and is coordinated mostly by a core group of participating students. Part of the program involved a mock fatal traffic collision. The collision simulates a DUI crash involving young adults. Paramedics, firefighters, police officers and other emergency personnel handled the mock crash just as they would the real thing. Juniors and seniors (high schools students likely to drive) observed the emergency crews in action and witnessed the arrest of the intoxicated driver, played by a student actor. Every 15 Minutes concluded the following day with a moving school assembly including a video presentation and guest speaker. The #Pleasanton Police Department is proud to support this educational event. We continue to strive for a safe prom, graduation and summer season without the tragic consequences of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The event is meant to stir conversation about the dangers of driving under the influence, and about the very real consequences of getting into a vehicle with someone who is under the influence or drugs or alcohol, even if they've had "just a little." With prom and graduation season around the corner, it is imperative to have a very real, honest and difficult conversation with our youth about the dangers of driving under the influence. This annual event would not be possible without funding from the Office of Traffic Safety, assistance from CHP - Dublin, CHP - Air Operations, the City of Pleasanton Streets Department, Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department, Paramedics Plus - Alameda Co., Graham-Hitch Mortuary, Eden Medical Center, Pleasanton Unified School District, the tireless work of a very dedicated student planning committee and their supportive families.

They are far more than extra eyes and ears. They are dedicated. They are selfless. They are volunteers. For National Volunteer Week the #Pleasanton Police Department would like to send a heartfelt thank you to these amazing people. We are #BetterTogether.

This morning Pleasanton's DARE officers gave some Hearst Elementary - Pleasanton students a ride to school as part of a school fundraiser. Fourth graders Madison, Sage, and Katie had a great time with Officer McNeill at Starbucks before being dropped off at school in style. We enjoy being a part of the Pleasanton Unified School District family and are grateful for the inclusion. We are #BetterTogether.

Members of the SWAT team recently attended a law enforcement career fair Napa Valley College police academy because we're accepting applications for academy grads (and recruits!) If you can tell which officer had his morning coffee you've passed the 1st test and are welcome to apply. 👮‍♀️☕💪

In 2017 #Pleasanton's police dispatch and records team handled 72,432 calls for service. Of these, 32,311 were officer initiated. 40,121 calls came from the public. We strive to honor these patient souls every day, and this week we join the nation in singing their praise for #NationalTelecommunicatorsWeek. We are #BetterTogether.

There's a lot of love going on at Pleasanton PD this week. Not only are we celebrating our dispatchers, but it is also National Animal Services Officer Appreciation Week. Our Animal Services Officer, Frankie, is a huge asset to the City of Pleasanton and all of its creatures, domestic and wild. This week we honor Frankie and all who share her role in caring for our beloved animals.

We’re at Marriott Rancho Cordova today for the #Sacramento Law Enforcement Hiring Expo. Come visit us and hear about all the great things #Pleasanton has to offer.

Eventually #NationalTelecommunicationsWeek will be over... but the job carries on through dedicated dispatchers and call takers. Just to be clear, no swords were used in dispatch today. #ItGetsRoughThough

This week we celebrate all of those who wear the headset for #NationalTelecommunicatorsWeek! Our group of hardworking dispatchers are hardly seen by the public eye even though their job is integral to our success. We are #BetterTogether.

Robbery and Carjacking: On Thursday, April 5, 2018 around 11:30 a.m., an adult male (victim) visited a bank on Stoneridge Mall Road. After the victim made a withdrawal from the ATM he walked back to his vehicle and was approached from behind a suspect. The suspect threatened the victim and demanded property including the victim’s car keys. The victim complied and the suspect fled in the victim’s vehicle. The suspect was described as a white male adult, approximately 5’11” tall and 185 pounds. He was reportedly wearing grey sweatpants and a black long sleeve turtle neck. Responding officers met with the victim and learned that his vehicle was equipped with GPS technology. The vehicle was tracked to a neighborhood in the City of Livermore. Officers from the Livermore Police Department and Pleasanton Police Department responded to that location and found the vehicle unoccupied. An exhaustive search was completed but the suspect was not located and remains at large. Anyone who witnessed the crime or has any information related to this incident in encouraged to contact Detective Repetto at (925) 931-5100. Please reference case # 18-13328.

Do You Recognize This Person? The #Pleasanton Police Department is asking for help in identifying the pictured man. He may be linked to several recent thefts from gym lockers. Please call (925) 931-5100 if you have information about the identity of the individual.

On a recent call, Officer Paulson was searching for a dog that had been missing for several days. The owners could hear the dog whimpering every once in a while but because of the terrain, they could not figure out where the dog was. Fearing the worst, Officer Paulson started cutting through the overgrown hillsides (poison oak and all) in the direction of the dog's cries. Officer Paulson ended up calling the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department for assistance with the heavy brush. They came with chainsaws and helped to free Tablet, the sweet dog who had been tangled up and pinned to the ground in the heavy brush. Tablet escaped the ordeal without injury. She was hungry and thirsty but full of energy, jumping at the opportunity to say 'thank you' to her rescuers. The police department is grateful for the support of LPFD. We are #BetterTogether.

Pleasanton PD received an Easter treat yesterday when Bug (of #BugRocksPleasanton) stopped by. Not only did Sgt. Niederhaus get to hang out with this lovely young lady, but she came with treats for everyone who spent the day working. Thank you so much Bug, we love when you stop by! We are #BetterTogether.

Another Fun Run in the books! This time the action was Fairlands Elementary. Thank you Fairlands Flyers for hosting a great event - DARE Officer Batt had a great time, and the unicorn hair was over the top! Pleasanton Unified School District #BetterTogether

It is with a heavy heart that the Pleasanton Police Department announces the passing of beloved community member Gandalf II. Unlikely to serve as a traditional K9 officer, the Chihuahua-Schipperke mix proved to be a terrific community relations asset. Gandalf served the Pleasanton community for eight years by the side of Animal Services Officer Roy Ficken. In addition to handling animal related calls, the duo spent time educating children about animal safety. Roy and Gandalf would also respond to calls in an effort to help people cope with stressful situations. Gandalf helped a non-verbal child talk, calmed passengers in a car crash and forced smiles upon the toughest of officers. The duo officially retired in 2011, but spent the next couple of years volunteering at the police department. Gandalf holds a special place in the history of Pleasanton PD, and the department will be forever grateful for his service.
