Reading/Recess with Cops We love hanging out with the kiddos. Recently, we visited two schools: Kitayama and Guy Emanuele Elementary schools. The children kept Officers Alberto, Ayala, Leete and Smith on their toes as they were happy to jump into whatever activity was suggested. Thanks to the principals and staff for allowing us to play on the jungle gym and for making it possible for the kids to get to know us better. Don't forget to ask us for a trading card when you see us again!

If anyone knows the identity of "Lil T Snoopy", the Union City Police Department would like to talk to him (or her) about redirecting his (or her) desire to use spray paint into a more desirable artistic expression. Snoopy has been tagging all over the east side of town the last week or so. Obviously, we are not going to offer Snoopy a scholarship to art school, but we have some other "gifts" we would like to present to him (or her). Please call the UCPD Tip Line if you know Lil T Snoopy and you want to make sure he (or she) doesn't miss out! Tip Line: 510-675-5207. You can remain anonymous.

Residents and business owners in Union City, Video surveillance footage has long been a part of police investigations. The technology has advanced to cameras with amazing clarity, night vision, and the ability to easily share and store footage via the cloud. High quality video surveillance systems are affordable and easy for individuals to install without professional help. Home video surveillance systems are being installed daily throughout the city. UCPD has teamed up with crimereports.com to offer you the opportunity to register your camera at the crimereports.com website. Registering your camera (or cameras) with crimereports.com’s confidential database provides an expedited investigation process for police personnel. Investigating officers will quickly be able to determine if there are any cameras in the area of a crime that may have clues in a case or other evidentiary value. Only officers investigating a crime can access the crimereports.com database, and the UCPD Investigations Unit supervisor must first approve the access. To register your camera, go to unioncity.org and click on the picture of a smiling Officer Fonseca (Union City Police Department). On the police department’s home page, click “Crime in My Neighborhood” on the left sidebar. Click on the highlighted link: ‘View the latest crime data for Union City”. This will take you to crimereports.com for Union City. You will see a map of all crime in Union City that generated police reports for the last few weeks. At the top right corner is the “Register a Camera” link. *Here is the direct link to Register a Camera: https://analytics-api.commandcentral.com/camera_registration#/ Once you create your account, you can register as many cameras as you would like. I personally only have one of my five cameras registered. You can register a camera three ways. You can register providing your contact information and we will contact you via email or telephone to request access to your video footage. If your camera uses cloud storage, you can register your camera by providing us login credentials to your cloud based service. You will first need to log into your service and create a separate username/password that you would provide to the PD. You can also register a cloud based camera by advising us to contact you for login credentials. When you register your camera, provide a brief description of the camera view (mine has a view of my entire court). Also, do not register your indoor cameras unless you are a business. This is a great opportunity for the community to work with the police department in solving crime in our city. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at fredc@unioncity.org ~~Sgt. Freddy Camacho

This past Sunday and Monday, Union City Police Officers joined thousands of others at the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony at the State Capital in Sacramento. They attended to Honor and Remember all of the Officers killed in the line of duty in California. We feel blessed to have also received numerous donations from local businesses and individuals, which allowed us to send two officers to Washington D.C. for National Police Week 2018. Please stay tuned as we follow them on their journey during the National Police Week ceremonies. The following information provides the history of the National Peace Officers Memorial Day as well as the history behind the California Memorial. Copied from: https://camemorial.org/the-memorial/general-information/: In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. The California Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremonies are held the first week of May at the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Monument in Sacramento on State Capitol grounds. The ceremonies serve to formally enroll peace officers who have died in the line of duty the preceding year, pay tribute to the over 1500 officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice since California became a state, and to honor the families left behind. The ceremonies are a two-day event, beginning with a Candlelight Vigil at the Memorial Monument. At dusk families, friends, community members, and colleagues walk in solidarity to the Memorial Monument to remember and celebrate their fallen heroes. The next morning’s formal ceremonial events include a memorial procession for law enforcement vehicles, a Walk of Honor for department representatives and immediate family members of officers being enrolled, and the Enrollment Ceremony, where the names of newly enrolled officers are formally added to the Memorial Monument. This beautiful and solemn ceremony incorporates many law enforcement traditions including a riderless horse presentation, the folding of the United States Flag, releasing of doves, and concludes with a 21-gun salute and the playing of Taps.

We would like to welcome two more members of our UCPD family. Ming Kim and Jonathan Carlson, our newest cadets in our Property and Traffic divisions. We hope that you have positive and successful careers with our agency! Welcome Gentlemen!
