Antioch Police Department News

The Antioch Police Department would like to thank all military personnel for the sacrifices you have made, and continue to make for our freedom. Happy Veterans Day!

Our Police Explorers were out today issuing “warning citations” to local patrons in the parking lots of the Slatten Ranch corridor on Lone Tree Way. The Explorers were looking for vehicles with unlocked doors, open windows, and valuables in plain sight. Several vehicles had multiple “violations” that were noted on the citations. In all they issued over 120 citations. If the Explorers can see it, so can the thieves. Please be mindful of leaving your items in plain view especially with the upcoming holidays.

HELP US HELP YOU! As much as we try to get the word out to our residents, it is difficult (if not impossible) to make our community safer without your help. PLEASE, especially with the holiday season quickly approaching, do not make yourself an easy target for thieves by leaving valuables in plain sight when you are away from your car! It only takes a matter of seconds for your window to be broken and your items stolen! We don't want this any more than you do. Let's stay safe together! Sincerely, Chief T Brooks

Yesterday morning, we received a call from Antioch Nissan reporting they saw a subject with a vehicle on the railroad tracks behind their business dumping trash. Officers responded and did not locate anyone at that time. Officer Lenderman, from our Community Engagement Team (CET), kept patrolling the area and witnessed the same vehicle pull up and dump additional items. The driver was arrested and the vehicle towed. We rely on our community to call in when they see something suspicious. Also, don’t forget about the See Click Fix App where you can send in pictures of problematic areas.

Last night, we experienced a call no law enforcement agency or community ever wants to hear. Shots fired…Officer down! Thankfully, our officer was not seriously injured and is expected to make a full recovery. After a lengthy standoff, the suspect surrendered and was taken into custody without incident. The details of the incident will be released soon, but we wanted to reach out to everyone this morning to say THANK YOU! Thank you to the allied agencies (including Con-Fire and AMR) that responded from far and wide to provide immediate support and resources. Your assistance helped guide this incident to the best possible outcome. Thank you to our community for your patience, understanding, and prayers during and after this chaotic event. The support you provided was felt by all of us. We are definitely stronger together. #family #community #antiochpd #grateful #strongertogether. Photo credit to Gary Zabel

Please join us in welcoming our newest Police Officer, Calvin Prieto! Calvin grew up in San Leandro and graduated from San Leandro High School in 2007. After High School, Calvin enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. As a Marine, Calvin deployed several times including Operation Iraqi Freedom and Humanitarian aid services in Myanmar. Calvin was honorably discharged at the rank of Sergeant in 2011. After returning to the Bay Area in 2011, Calvin put himself through the Alameda County Sheriff’s Regional Training Center. Upon graduation, in February 2012, Calvin was hired by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office and was assigned to custodial services as a deputy. He left ACSO in 2014 to work for the city of San Leandro as a Police Officer. While working as a police officer, Calvin attended school part time and obtained his Bachelor’s Degree from the American Military University in Criminal Justice in 2014. He later returned to JFK University in June 2018, and obtained a Master’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Organizational Leadership. Calvin is excited to bring over his family to the Antioch Police Department and serve the community. In his free time, Calvin enjoys spending time with family and friends and enjoys taking his family on road trips. A fun fact about Calvin is that he has participated in the U.S. Police & Fire Olympics and has won two gold medals in the “prestigious” sport of Dodgeball. His pre-game routine includes watching the movie “Dodgeball,” and quoting Ben Stiller.

Pastor Jayson Borges with the Wesleyan Church and members of his congregation provided lunch to the teachers at Marsh Elementary School today. We got to spend time with the kids during their lunch, and had a great time! Thank you so much for having us! We were happy to get out of a uniform for part of the day and show the kids that we’re normal people just like they are!!

On October 25, 2018 we graduated our 20th class of Police Volunteers. These dedicated citizens attended a week long academy where they received police related training from several instructors at the police department. After the academy, they receive additional field training from our experienced volunteers on the various duties they will be performing. Our Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) provide valuable services to the city and our citizens we would not otherwise be able to offer. Our VIPS assist with abandoned autos, parking enforcement, traffic control, records, data entry, and park and vacation home checks. We are thankful for our volunteers who donate their time and service to our police department so that we can continue to offer these services to our citizens.

Our 95th Neighborhood Cleanup is scheduled for November 3, 2018, from 9AM-11AM. We will be cleaning the neighborhoods around Carmen Dragon Elementary. The flier and map are included with this post. Please join us in making Antioch a cleaner and more inviting place to be. 👮🏽👍🏽🚨

Meet your Beat! Meet Dispatcher Carrie Moore! Carrie started her career with the Antioch Police Department at 17 years old when she started volunteering in dispatch while a member of the Antioch Police Department’s Explorer program. After first being hired on a part time basis with Antioch Police Dispatch at 18 years old, Carrie eventually accepted a full time position dispatching with the Walnut Creek Police Department from 1996-2006. Carrie returned home to Antioch Dispatch in 2013. Carrie had never planned on becoming a dispatcher, but enjoyed the job so much she had to stay. You may talk to Carrie when you call in at night while she works the graveyard shift. When she’s not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family and 3 dogs. Carrie’s parents have been a part of our VIPs program for 15 years. A couple fun facts about Carrie are that she has shaved her head 3 times, 2 times for St.Baldricks, which is a non profit organization with the aim of raising funds to help find cures for children with cancer, and also in support of Detective Miller in her battle against cancer. Carrie’s favorite part of the job is being able to help callers as well as working as a team with the officers.

Lately, I have had a number of people ask me about crime statistics in Antioch. More specifically, they want to know how our current crime rate compares to the crime rate prior to Measure C being approved by voters back in November 2013. Attached to this post is a graph comparing Antioch’s Part I crimes for the first nine months of 2013 to the first nine months of this year. Pretty staggering results! Overall, violent crime is down 39.9% and property crime is down 25.5%, resulting in a Total Part I Crime reduction of 28.2%. This data clearly shows that Antioch is a safer community than it was five years ago. Now, by no means am I saying Antioch is crime-free, or even as safe as we would like it to be. It’s not. However, we have made great strides over the last five years in making our city safer. But like many things that happen over a period of time, the results aren’t as obvious to those of us who live here and are acclimated to the environment we see every day. I’d like to share a personal story as an analogy to this. About 13 years ago, I weighed 320 pounds. I made some eating and lifestyle changes, and eventually lost over 100 pounds. This was very difficult for me to do and took more than a year to accomplish. The sad part about this was while I was losing weight, I continually felt as though my physical appearance was not changing. I saw myself every day, picking apart every flaw, and continually feeling as though I was making very little (if any) progress. It was not until I saw a picture of myself at my heaviest, and compared it to a more recent picture, that I was able to appreciate the change I had made. Some people have a preconceived notion about Antioch. And for them, every single incident of crime reported helps justify their opinion. Also known as confirmation bias, this is the mentality of someone who fails to see the forest for the trees. Antioch previously had the unfortunate distinction of being one of the most dangerous cities in California. That is no longer the case. In fact, the most recent list I saw (just published last week) had Antioch down to # 51 (https://www.roadsnacks.net/most-dangerous-cities-in-california/). By no means is this perfect or even ideal. But it’s a marked improvement from where we were. There is still a lot of work needed to make Antioch safer. But the men and women of the Antioch Police Department have been, and are still, committed to doing the best we can with the staffing and resources we have to improve the safety of our community. I believe the funding generated by Measure C has enabled the Antioch Police Department to make a measurable impact on the crime in our city over the past five years. Measure W, on this November’s ballot, is intended to continue providing the Department funding that could be used for programs and staffing to further reduce crime in our community. As your Chief of Police, and an Antioch resident, I am truly thankful for everything and everyone working to keep our community safer! Respectfully, Tammany Brooks III Antioch Chief of Police **The increase in Rape crimes was a direct result of the Department of Justice expanding the definition of that crime, which took effect January 2014.

It's almost Halloween! On October 31st between 3:30-6, come down to the Antioch Police Department and Trick-or-Treat with the Police! It's going to be a HAUNTINGLY good time 👻🎃👮‍♂️ Antioch Police Department

In response to recent incidents we have had involving vehicles without license plates, today we conducted a traffic detail where we focused on locating and citing vehicles driving in our city without license plates. We had a special team of officers out saturating the area looking for moving violations, as well as vehicles without plates. The officers working the detail wrote 28 traffic citations, towed 3 vehicles,and made 2 arrests. They also located a stolen vehicle. We will continue to work similar details to reduce the number of vehicles on the road with paper plates, as well as enforce other traffic laws within the city.

Big truck day is 10/18/18 from 3PM-8PM. We're ready and excited to be part of this event. We will have our rescue vehicle to check out along with other cool service trucks on hand. We know you'll want check out all the food trucks too. Hope to see you all there, stop by and say hi. 👮🏽🚓🚨

UPDATE: THE MISSING JUVENILE HAS BEEN LOCATED. LOCATED***Missing Juvenile At Risk*** Antioch PD is seeking the public's assistance in locating an 11-year-old missing juvenile, Vanessa Westbrook. Vanessa was last seen in the area of Crest Park Circle on foot (this is near Country Hills Drive and Hillcrest Avenue). Vanessa is a black female juvenile, 11 years old, 4'8", 80 pounds, with brown and burgundy braids in her hair, brown eyes, last seen wearing a fuchsia pink shirt and black floral leggings. She may be carrying two backpacks full of clothing so her clothes may be different. If found, please immediately call 9-1-1 or Antioch Police Dispatch at 925-778-2441.

Sometimes after a long day, or long work week, it’s nice to get something unexpected like this that reminds us of how great this community is, and why we do what we do! Thank you to whoever left our Officer this note. It’s still inside his car 😊.
