In 1984, the National Crime Prevention Council designated October “National Crime Prevention Month.” October is a time to recognize and celebrate successful crime prevention efforts on the local, state, and national levels and generate interest and enthusiasm so that prevention efforts continue to grow even stronger. The Pleasanton Police Department will be celebrating National Crime Prevention Month with various community activities and projects.
Starting this month, webcasts will be featured on the department’s website
(PleasantonPD.org). These webcasts will be hosted by crime prevention officers and will cover information on current significant cases, special events, and of course crime prevention tips.
The Pleasanton Police Department is also widening its reach with the use of Nixle, a text/email/web based system that sends real-time information to subscribers. Nixle is free and signing up is easy – simply text message your zip code to 888777 to get pertinent information from Pleasanton PD.
In an effort to remain accessible to the community, the Crime Prevention Unit will be hosting “Coffee with a Cop” on Tuesday, October 30th from 8:00-10:00 am and again from 1:00-3:00 pm at Tully’s Coffee (349 Main St, Ste #110). Residents are welcome to ask questions, share information and take home Halloween safety items from Pleasanton’s Crime Prevention Unit.
If you have questions about this upcoming event or if you would like more information about fighting crime in your neighborhood, contact the Pleasanton Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit at (925) 931-5233 or (925) 931-5240.
