Police Dept. Operational Updates

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 9:02 AM by Suzanne Iarla

  • Detectives identified suspects and received arrest warrants for two persons that robbed a pedestrian on the Ohlone Greenway. Officers made the arrests in Antioch with the aid of Antioch SWAT.
  • The Department hosted a reception and tour for the Explorer families who were very impressed with our advisors and the K-9 demonstration.
  • PD staff held a community forum on body worn cameras (BWC) and other technology that was well attended. The Department will hold another forum and meet with WCCUSD staff and parents about the use of BWC’s on campuses in El Cerrito.
  • Command and supervisory staff were trained on new software called IAPRO and Blue Team. It is designed to increase accountability and tracking of a variety of measures such as use of force, enhance early warning systems, serve as a database for California DOJ reporting guidelines effective in 2020, and reduce potential liability.
