OPD Continues to Roll Out Its Five District Plan Saturday - Amended

On Saturday, June 8, 2013, the Oakland Police Department will continue implementation of its Neighborhood Policing Plan, putting into place leadership and teams for each of five Police Districts that together encompass the entire City. Districts 4 and 5, in operation since March, cover East Oakland. Districts 1, 2, and 3, hinging on Lake Merritt, cover West Oakland, North Oakland, and Central Oakland.

District commanders will deploy crime reduction and prevention strategies tailored for the areas they command in order to provide as much focused, problem-oriented, and community-driven police service delivery as possible. There will be no change to the number of patrol or problem solving officers assigned to beats or Neighborhood Crime Prevention Councils.

The five district commanders listed below have the authority needed to impact local community crime trends, issues, and pat¬terns. At the same time, the commanders will be held accountable for effective police service and the quality of police/community relationships in their Districts. Most importantly, the five commanders will be able to focus on specific issues of concern to local neighborhoods.

District 1 – Capt. Eric Lewis – 238-6911 –
District 2 – Capt. Anthony Toribio – 238-3958 –
District 3 – Capt. Ricardo Orozco – 238-3330 –
District 4 – Capt. Steven Tull – 777-8561 –
District 5 – Capt. Kirk Coleman – 777-8543 –
