Update on the recent robbery investigation: the outstanding suspect has been arrested. FCPD investigators identified the third suspect involved in the robbery and obtained an arrest warrant. On Tuesday, October 17th, 19-year old Kumari Daniel Taylor was arrested in Oakland and booked into jail for the warrant. Taylor is an Oakland resident. We would like to thank the Oakland P.D. for locating and arresting Taylor and helping us bring the third suspect to justice.

Recognize me? The dog, not the Officers. 👻 We found this dog on Castor St near Foster City School today at 920am. If you are the owner or know me. Call the FCPD.

SCAM ALERT: Telephone scams are still occuring in Foster City and around the country. This is just a reminder, if you receive a call asking for you to send money (money order or prepaid debit/credit/gift card) or to provide personal information over the telephone, it may be a scam (I.e. IRS, Utility Company, Prize Winner,Mortgage modification, arrested family members). You should never provide any personal information or credit/banking information over the telephone. Don't become a victim. For more information about telephone scams go to the Federal Trade Commision website: or read their online pamphlet:

Armed Robbery Suspects Arrested: Great work on the part of our FCPD officers who tenaciously worked this case on Saturday evening and ultimately arrested two suspects who had earlier committed an armed robbery in Foster City. FCPD would also like to send thanks to the Hayward Police Department and some of their alert residents for their assistance in apprehending the suspects. Though we may be separated by a pretty lengthy bridge and a large body of water, it didn’t stop our two law enforcement agencies from collaborating in the capture of two criminals, the locating of the handgun used in the crime, and the recovery of all the stolen property. Nice work all the way around! For further details, please see our press release:

‪Today from 9am-3pm, free disposal for unwanted meds at the FC Library‬

Yesterday’s call for service involving the Life Flight helicopter landing at Catamaran Park had to do with a family experiencing a significant private crisis and a need for serious medical assistance for one of its family members. There was never a public safety threat. Keeping privacy laws in mind, please realize that every public safety incident in the city is not available for disclosure or sharing on social media. Rest assured that the FCPD will provide you with information if there is ANY concern for the community as a whole, whatsoever, while also appropriately respecting the privacy of those who reside here.
