Possible Planned Looting at Bayfair Center

The San Leandro Police Department has received reports of planned looting at Bayfair Center tonight. In response, we have brought in additional officers to reinforce patrol and will have a heavy presence at that location.

The City of San Leandro and the San Leandro Police Department respects the rights of people to peacefully protest, but the information we have is that criminal activity is being planned.  That information is based on statements made by known actors associated with other recent acts of looting and vandalism.  Therefore, we are not taking this matter lightly and are preparing for it. 

We are in communication with our law enforcement partners in the event we need additional resources in San Leandro.  The most important thing to know is that the safety of our community is our highest priority. We will take all precautions possible to maintain the safety of our residents and businesses.

The Mayor and City Council ask our community to stay alert, stay home, and stay safe if we advise of criminal activity. If you see something that appears suspicious or threatening, contact us immediately. Do not engage in preventing a crime. Businesses and property owners should remain vigilant and may want to take steps to safeguard their properties and employees.

We will be continuing to put out information when possible, and when doing so does not jeopardize the safety of the community or our officers. Information will be posted to the City’s website and on Nixle, Nextdoor, Facebook, and Twitter.
