When Crime Occurs

Report a crime If you see a crime in progress, call the police!

Only call 911 from a land line!

From a cell phone call 510-777-3211 which routes directly to OPD dispatch. 

To report a crime that has already happened:

Call the non-emergency number 510-777-3333, or fill in OPD's Online Crime Reporting form.  You'll find the link on their Report a Crime page.  We've been warned that the form is easier to fill out on a laptop or desktop than it is on a smartphone.

Crime Stats June 2022 (revised)

Crime Stats July 2022

 There is still a problem with the OPD crime reports data feed – the information I get for our 2 beats on the 5th of a month, for the previous month, is absurdly small.  I can only get full information for a month by waiting an extra month for the download; at that point I get what looks like the crime reports I’m used to seeing for 12Y and 13X.  I’m still trying to find someone in the Oakland IT department to report this to.

June was a much busier month than the original report showed.  Crimes against the person were not very numerous and numbers didn’t change much; there were none in 13X in either report, and 12Y reports increased from 4 to 5.  As usual, our primary issue in the Rockridge beats is property crime and vandalism.  General property crime went from 8 and 2 (12Y and 13X) to 23 and 7.  Auto-related property crimes increased from 11 and 0 to 21 and 1; and quality of life crimes (all vandalism) increased from 17 and 3 to 43 and 11!  The total number of reported crimes from 12Y and 13X increased from 40 and 5 (initial report) to 95 and 19.  The original June report included 2 incidents in 12Y with multiple charges (one burglary with attempted vehicle theft and one tampering with a vehicle plus a dangerous weapon and GBI); the revised June report added a 3rd multiple charge incident (auto burglary and vandalism).

I include a report for July, although as usual it is so skimpy that I know the numbers will increase in early September.  The total number of reported crimes from 12Y and 13X for July was 46 and 8, including no crimes against the person in 13X, and only 1 report of vandalism there.  As usual, the high numbers are in property crime and auto-related property crime – low to middle teens in 12Y and 3-5 in 13X.  Small as it was, the July report included 3 incidents in 12Y with multiple charges (fighting/vandalism/deadly weapon, battery on a spouse or date/dangerous weapon, and burglary/possess burglary tools/felony violation of probation).  I expect these numbers to increase in September.

If any reader has contacts in Oakland’s IT department whom I could talk to, please reach out to me.  I’ve fairly definitely established that this data feed is managed by city IT and not by the Police Department.  Last month I suggested that people might not be reporting some crimes (and I believe that may still be so).  But based on what I’m seeing, there’s definitely some kind of delay in populating reported data into the feed.
