New Community Resource Officers

Beats 12Y and 13X have new Community Resource Officers assigned as of January 23, 2021. Officer Meeran Gichki will now serve beat 12, and Officer Aaron Johnson will now serve beat 13.

Fortunately neither of the Rockridge beats lost a CRO in OPD's recent budget arrangements.  You can find their information on the NCPC web site main menu at Resources > Important People.

New OPD Web Page

As part of OPD's recent district policing reorganization, Area 2 in North Oakland (beats 8 through 14) now has its own web page:

Area 2

It lists the senior officers in charge of North Oakland and the Hills, plus other contacts and information.  The only crime statistics available on the Area 2 site at the moment are the ShotSpotter statistics, which include other general statistics about gun related crime.
