Our Upcoming Events
Neighborhood Services Division
The Neighborhood Services Division works every day to accomplish its primary goal, which is to increase citizen participation in crime prevention and problem-solving at three levels:
- On the block
- In the neighborhood
The success of this mission is quantifiable. Since 2005:
- The number of official Neighborhood Watch groups has increased from 50 to 629.
- The number of National Night Out parties has grown from 35 to over 400.
Other programs managed by the Neighborhood Services Division—such as Youth and Senior Safety programs and the Citizens’ Police Academy—provide crime prevention education and training, or act as entry points for involvement in civic and community life.
Non-sworn members of the Oakland Police Department, including two Police Services Technicians and nine Neighborhood Services Coordinators, are dedicated to the Neighborhood Services Division mission.
