Large Scale Public Safety Training Exercise - Today, Friday, November 2, in the 6500 block of Dumbarton Circle. Today, November 2, 2018, from approximately 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., the City of Fremont’s Police Department is facilitating a large scale joint training exercise in the 6500 block of Dumbarton Circle. The training is primarily taking place within the interior of vacant buildings in a business park owned by Facebook. The training involves a large number of personnel and volunteers from the Fremont Police Department, Fremont Fire Department, City of Fremont Emergency Services, ALCO Fire, Paramedics Plus, and Facebook. Limited occasional pyrotechnics will be used to simulate the noise of an incident. Police and fire vehicles as well as ambulances will be utilized at the entrance of the campus however, they will not be utilizing sirens during the course of the training. In preparation for this large scale training exercise, officers have tested the noise level in the area and we do not anticipate any disruptions to adjacent business operations. The purpose of this specialized training is to enhance the ability of the involved agencies to jointly respond to major acts of violence, specifically those involving an active shooter and/or dangerous intruder. A large component of the training involves the delivery of field trauma care during high risk situations, unified command and rescue operations. This partnership is of great benefit to those we serve and is a core component of our mission to provide the highest level of public safety to our community. Training safety during this exercise is of the utmost importance to us. The training site will be secure and not be open to the public. We appreciate your understanding and have structured the training to limit the impact on the surrounding community. Please contact Public Affairs Manager Geneva Bosques with the Fremont Police Department if you have any questions. She can be reached at (510) 790-6957 or Gbosques@fremont.gov.

Halloween Safety Tips Trick-or-treating should be one of the great adventures a child experiences on Halloween. We would like to provide a few tips for parents to help ensure the experience is also a safe one! Children: - Never trick or treat without parents. - Always cross the street at corners. - Use traffic signals and crosswalks. - Never cross the street between parked cars. - Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. - Beware of vehicles backing out of driveways. - Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them. - Put cell phones and other electronic devices down while crossing the street. - Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic, the furthest to the left as possible. - Carry a flashlight or glow stick and/or wear reflective tape. - Never go into a stranger’s house or car. - Older children should trick or treat in groups and stay in familiar locations. - Plan your route and share it with your family - Older children should program an emergency contact in their phone. Program ICE ("in case of emergency") followed by the names and phone numbers of those whom you wish to be notified in an emergency. ICE is recognized by emergency medical technicians, firefighters, police and emergency room personnel. Parents Should: - Walk with their children or make sure children are accompanied by a trusted adult. - Make sure trick-or-treaters will be safe when visiting your home. Remove lawn decorations and sprinklers, toys and bicycles or anything that might obstruct your walkway. Provide a well-lit entrance to your home. Keep family pets away from trick-or-treaters. - Explain to children the difference between tricks and vandalism. - Instruct children NOT to eat treats until they return home and parents have had a chance to inspect those treats. - Not leave candles unattended, try battery operated or votive candles in your jack-o-lanterns. - Establish a pre-determined time that your older teenage child should return home. Let them know how important it is for them to be home by that time. Drivers Should: - Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways. - Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs. - Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully. - Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings. - Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances. - Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours. Costume Safety Tips: - Costumes, masks, beards and wigs should be flame resistant. - Costumes should be light, bright and clearly visible to motorists, adding reflective tape can help make your child more visible to motorists. - Make-up is safer than a mask, which can obscure vision. Test the make-up to make sure your child doesn't have an allergic reaction. - Avoid oversize costumes and high-heeled shoes that can cause a child to trip. - Children should carry a flashlight to easily see and be seen. - Trick-or-treat bags should not be too large; they can obscure vision or cause a child to trip. Halloween Hazards: - Sharp or pointed toy weapons. - Open flames. - Dangerous roadways. - Treacherous “treats” - examine all treats for signs of tampering and choking hazards. Children should not eat homemade treats made by strangers. - Do not allow children to carve pumpkins alone (special pumpkin cutters for kids are available at your local grocery or Halloween store). Always report suspicious activity to the Fremont Police Department by calling 510-790-6800 X 3 and 911 for an emergency. We hope that you have a fun and safe Halloween!

On October 18, Fremont Detectives arrested two suspects believed to be responsible for nighttime auto burglaries and a large scale identity theft operation in Fremont. On October 18, 2018, Fremont Police General Crimes Detectives conducted a probation search at a residence in the 3800 of Artist Walk Common in the Centerville area as follow up to a recent series of auto burglaries that had occurred in Fremont. In several of the documented police reports, the victim vehicles had no forced entry. Loss included small electronics, backpacks and personal identifying information. On this date, detectives were specifically looking to conduct a probation search on 33 year old Daniel Sanchez, who was on probation, multiple times, for crimes related to theft. When detectives knocked on the door and made announcements to enter the residence there was no answer. They found the door to be barricaded with large items, including a tire. Shortly after the announcements, Brittany Tollner, a 29 year old female (also found to be on probation for theft) was greeted by detectives as she attempted to flee the residence through the back patio. Once detectives were able to enter, Sanchez was detained without incident. Inside the residence, large amounts of stolen mail, personal identifying documents, a methamphetamine smoking pipe, fake currency, burglary tools and other items consistent with identity theft were located. Additionally, an electronic remote control device was found. Detectives learned the device has the ability to detect a key fob’s unique code, copy the code and re-transmit it to another device. The device is believed to have been used in several of the auto burglary cases where there was no forced entry. Stolen mail and several of the documents were later confirmed to have been taken during the recent spree of auto burglaries detectives were investigating. Sanchez and Toller were both booked into jail on the following charges: - PC 530.5(c)(3) - possession of personal identifying information for 10+ people - PC 466 - possession of burglary tools - PC 476 - possession of fraudulent currency - PC 496 - possession of stolen property - HS 11364 - possession of drug paraphernalia - PC 148(a)(1) - resisting/delaying a police officer - PC 1203.2 - probation violation Unfortunately crimes involving new technology are on the rise. Detectives strongly encourage community members to refrain from leaving any items in your car. Please always call the police department if you see suspicious vehicles, activity or persons lurking around parked vehicles. To report an in-progress crime, dial 9-1-1 and call 510-790-6800 x3 to report non-emergencies and suspicious activity. Our tip reporting option and social media channels are not monitored 24/7, please refrain from using them to report in-progress activity. Anyone with information about this case is asked to please contact Detective Stillitano at Astillitano@fremont.gov or call Fremont Police Investigations at 510-790-6900.

By now many community members have likely heard about a vandalism that occurred in our community last week. If you aren’t aware, we have attached the East Bay Times article which explains in short what occurred. Our department immediately opened an investigation and reached out to the victim when we learned this had occurred. Chief Kimberly Petersen and our Command Staff have all been made aware and have directed officers to thoroughly investigate the incident. The case will be transitioned to our Crimes Against Persons Unit Monday morning. We are investigating this as a vandalism and possible hate crime. We hope to provide an update early in the week as the investigation progresses.

Police activity today near Denny’s (Mowry/Farwell) - Man with a gun call Today at 10:00 am we received a call from a witness who was driving past Denny’s on Mowry. The witness saw a male with a gun holstered on his hip. The caller said the subject gave her a strange look and made her feel uncomfortable. When officers arrived, the male shouted to us that the gun was fake, but refused to follow any commands. Officers kept distance and continued to ask him to lay down the gun on the ground in order to provide for a safe approach. The male did not follow commands and eventually after several verbal notifications, we released a K9. The K9 did bite the subject, who then surrendered. The suspect was treated immediately by paramedics and arrested. He will be taken for medical clearance and then transported to Santa Rita for booking. The gun was a replica.

Euthanized Injured Deer Earlier today we became aware of a social media posting regarding an injured deer. Below are details of the incident: Today Thursday, October 11, 2018, at approximately 10:23 am, officers responded to a report of a vehicle collision involving a deer on Mission Boulevard near Hunter Lane. It was reported that the deer was blocking a portion of the roadway and was “in a lot of pain”. Upon arrival, officers located the deer which was severely injured. Officers determined the deer should be euthanized due to the severity of the injuries and the animal’s apparent suffering. Wild animals who are severely injured are not typically treated by veterinarians and/or animal services. Options in these cases are limited and the accepted industry practice is to euthanize the animal to avoid prolonged suffering and minimize danger to the public. In accordance with department policy, considering the safety of the public and assessing all available options, an officer utilized his firearm to humanely dispatch the animal. Animal Services was contacted and collected the deer shortly after 11:00 am. This is unfortunately not something we like to be in the position of having to do, and difficult on the officers involved, but is necessary to prevent the animal from further suffering.

We are excited to join Nexdoor along with the City of Fremont, Fremont Fire, and Office of Emergency Services beginning Monday, October 15. We look forward to connecting with Fremont residents on Nextdoor!
