Crime Prevention Education
The Neighborhood Services Division provides presentations to the community or to businesses on many safety related topics. Presentations can be chosen from the list below. In addition, presentations can be individually designed for specific audiences that combine topics or address specific concerns and issues. For more information contact Eddie Simlin, Police Service Technician, (510) 238-6200 or email@example.com.
Businesses, schools, groups and organizations can request special presentations on personal safety and other topics of concern.
For more information, contact Brenda Ivey at (510) 238-3091 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Home Security Survey
This checklist gives an indication of the security of your home. Every ‘no’ checked shows a weak point that may help a burglar gain access to your home. To improve your security, attempt to eliminate the boxes checked ‘no.’ Go through the list systematically. Remember this checklist only points out your weak areas. Complying with these guidelines will not make your home burglar proof, but it will improve your protection. Download the Home Security Survey.

Volunteers in Policing
This program recruits and places residents in volunteer positions within the OPD.
