Tracy Police Department News

Tracy PD Teams with Outside Agency Traffic Units to Promote Safe Driving Wednesday, October 24, 2018 will mark the fourth day of the Tracy Police Department’s enhanced traffic and pedestrian safety operation. The first three days of the operation saw in excess of 400 stops made and 300 citations issued by 7 officers assigned to the operation on those days. The primary purpose of the operation is to promote safe driving and reduce traffic collisions throughout the City of Tracy. This Wednesday, October 24th, Tracy PD officers will be joined by Traffic Officers from Lodi, Lathrop, San Joaquin County, Ripon and Manteca to continue the effort. 15 officers instead of 7 will be out between the hours of 6AM and 3PM working various areas within the city limits of Tracy. Everyone can help in making Tracy’s streets safer. Please slow down. Stop at the stop signs. Get off your phones. Pay attention to your surroundings. We appreciate the help in keeping our streets safe for all.

The flyer for our shredding event had the incorrect ending time. The event ended at 1:00 pm. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused.

Happening Now: Our FREE document shredding event is underway in the north parking lot of City of Tracy - Local Government, located at 333 Civic Center Plaza. The event will run until 1:00pm. There is a 3 banker box limit per vehicle.

It is never too early for a quick reminder! We continue seeing purses, laptops and other valuables being stolen from vehicles. We cannot express enough the importance of removing all valuables from sight or even better remove them completely from your vehicle. Don't make it easy for the crooks #LOCKITORLOSEIT

THINK BEFORE YOU POST/SHARE We would like to encourage our residents to be mindful of the information you are sharing on social media. Some of you might have seen a post about this circulating yesterday but if you didn’t, it is definitely worth a read. It only takes incorrect information and a click for posts to go viral on the internet. Please rest assured that we take all human trafficking allegations seriously but please let law enforcement investigate. It is important to inform the public of any imminent threats just as it is equally important to share correct and accurate information.

Just another reminder to always lock your cars and take all your belongings with you. And no, the back seat is not a better hiding spot. Happy Friday everyone!

Tuesday evening, Oct 9, at approximately 9 PM, Tracy PD received reports of at least two vehicle burglaries on North Tracy Bl., between Grace Church and the Tracy Ballpark parking lots. The items taken included a purse, backpack and personal items taken from vehicles after windows were broken by the suspects. Approximately one hour later, Miguel Banks (19) and Leonte Ayers (19), both of Stockton, were arrested in the area of El Pescadero Park, near Kavanagh Ave. Almost all the property taken during the vehicle burglaries was recovered in their possession or near their location. Banks and Ayers were booked into San Joaquin County Jail on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools and conspiracy to commit crimes. We would like to take a moment to remind everyone that valuables left in plain sight are attractive to thieves who look for crimes of opportunity. Let's work together to eliminate opportunities for criminals to victimize our community.

On Saturday, October 27th from 10:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. the Tracy Police Department will be collecting unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications to the north parking lot at Tracy City Hall, 333 Civic Center Drive, for disposal. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. This event is co-sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration, and is the 16th collection since the inception of the Safe and Responsible Drug Act of 2010. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. https://bit.ly/2P8YzO0

Earlier today Tracy Police received a vague mention of a possible gun at Tracy High School. After investigating, Tracy Police and TUSD staff found no credible threats. At this time Tracy PD has increased its presence at Tracy High School and other schools as a precaution. We take all school threats seriously and therefore encourage parents to talk to their kids about the seriousness of making or sharing hoax threats via social media. There are currently no credible threats to Tracy High School or any of the schools in our community.

Good news! Thank you to all who shared.

Another person has been identified as a person of interest in the abduction of Jayce Cosso. Let’s help find this little boy.

Please help share!

It is with deep sadness we announce the death of retired officer Jenny Moore who passed away on August 13, 2018 in Millersville, Maryland. Jenny served the community of Tracy from 1993 until her retirement in 2004. Jenny held the rank of Corporal, served in the then named Street Crime Unit as a narcotics investigator and worked in the Tracy Unified School District as a DARE officer. As a Field Training Officer, Jenny taught new officers how to police in Tracy and gave them an appreciation of what it meant to grow up in a town and later serve the same community. She also was a member of our adventure racing team competing in several events on the west coast. Jenny graduated from Tracy High School in 1986 and later completed a Master’s Degree in Psychology, which she put to good use as a psychologist at a non-profit organization. Her mother, Jane Moore of California, survives her; her Father Bob Moore of Texas; her sisters Robin and Kelli, and brother Bobby, all of California. She also had numerous nieces and nephews. Her memorial and internment are private. Our deepest condolences go out to her family and friends.

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and the family and friends of Deputy Mark Stasyuk.

This morning 9 Tracy officers on motors and in marked patrol vehicles conducted a traffic and pedestrian safety operation around Williams, Villalovoz and Jacobson Schools. After school traffic ended they shifted their focus to the 11th Street corridor and the Grant Line Corridor. Over the course of eight hours 165 traffic stops were conducted and over 120 citations were issued for a variety of vehicle code violations. The traffic and pedestrian safety operation is in direct response to our residents’ primary complaint of unsafe driving. There will be more days in the coming weeks where the team will concentrate on different schools but will continue to focus on high volume intersections and neighborhoods where unsafe driving is a concern. We appreciate the cooperation of everyone contacted today. Please drive safe.

INVESTIGATION UPDATE: ARREST On Wednesday, September 12, 2018, at approximately 9:21 AM, an officer on routine patrol discovered a man collapsed on the sidewalk near the intersection of 10th St. and 11th St., suffering from a stab wound to the chest. The victim was rushed to a local hospital where he received emergency medical treatment. The investigation conducted by Tracy PD detectives led to the identification of 36-year-old Anthone Cobb, of Tracy, as the suspect in the stabbing. He was arrested approximately 8 hours later in Tracy, then he was booked into San Joaquin County Jail on charges of attempted murder (664/187 PC) and revocation of probation/PRCS (3455 PC). Detectives were able to determine that the victim and the suspect knew each other and this was not a random act of violence. The victim, a 24-year-old male from Tracy, remains in critical but stable condition at this time.

Today is #NationalPoliceWomanDay and we’re celebrating all women in law enforcement. Here are our amazing women behind the badge who make a difference in The City of Tracy each and every day!
