  1. Is it possible to include specific information regarding the location of the arrest, e.g., the street or neighborhood?

    1. Karen – We decided to leave out that information on purpose. Our goal with this log is to inform the San Ramon residents of what type of arrests we are making throughout each week. Starting tomorrow we will be releasing a calls for service report and if people are interesting in finding out more details about each arrest, they will be able to cross reference the arrest listed with the calls for service log. The log will be posted in downloadable and searchable Excel spreadsheet format. Those who are interested will be able to search for incidents by street name through this format. Look for that log tomorrow afternoon. -Lt. Denton Carlson

      1. Hi Denton,
        I appreciate all of your efforts toward transparency. I have significantly mixed feelings about posting detailed information regarding the location that each reported incident was generated from. I know that some folks have indicated that details will be “helpful” to them but I think there is more “curiosity” than potential for practical use. I am most concerned that surfacing location details might have a “chilling effect” on folks’ interest in reporting particularly sensitive incidents like domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, etc. I think we need to have a thoughtful balance between the general public’s “need” to know, and maintaining sufficient confidentiality to allow our excellent police force to do their best work.

      2. Susan,

        We will not be releasing any information which could jeopardize victim confidentiality. Any arrest associated with this type of sensitive incident will remain generic, without any information associated with the location of occurrence. Once we publish the incident summary report, these types of incidents are automatically removed when the report is generated. The report is then double checked, with human eyes, to ensure none of these incidents are included.

        We take victim confidentiality very seriously at San Ramon PD and we do not want to jeopardize that in any manner.

        -Lt. Denton Carlson

  4. I hope everyone has noted how many of these incidents are alcohol or drug related and that everyone is driving defensively to avoid encounters with those driving under the influence. Any one of us can become a victim of crime and DUI’s driven by substance use disorders. Our organization, the National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse, ADAPT and Teen Esteem are all prevention groups working in the SRV to reduce substance abuse that can lead to these sorts of incidents, including home and car break ins. Thanks SRPD for sharing this information with us to help us understand the types of crime we’re seeing in our neighborhoods so we can take action upstream help prevent and avoid being impacted by it.

  5. I came by the police station someone there could give me the information and after I buy the device I could get some help in installing it or telling me where I can go to get it installed and learn to use it. Can you do that for me or advise me says:

    I’m not sure how to write this or who to send it to but I have a question. I know there’s a new law as of the beginning of January that we are supposed to have some kind of a device that we put on our dashboard to hold our telephone and that we can only use if we’re going to be talking and driving I may not of said that well but my point is it supposed to be a hands-free device and were supposed to use it. I don’t know what it is or where to get it or how to mount it and I want to comply with the law so I was wondering if I came by the police station someone there could give me the information and after I buy the device I could get some help in installing it or telling me where I can go to get it installed and learn to use it. Can you do that for me or advise me how to get it done?

    1. Here are the basics of the new law…if you use your cell phone while driving your vehicle, the phone must be mounted in your vehicle and any use of the phone has to be done by voice commands after one-touch operation of your phone. All cell phone operations while driving must be done in this manner, or you will be in violation of California law. You can buy any of these cell phone mounts through almost any retailer, that is a matter of preference. The mount is simply the device that holds the cell phone. The manner of cell phone operation is what changed on January 1st. Hope this makes sense.

      2. Monty,
        Just before 8 am on Thursday, the victim was taking a laptop and projector bag out of a vehicle when an unknown suspect came from behind and grabbed the victim’s property. The victim fought back but unfortunately the suspect took the property by force and ran south on San Ramon Valley Bvld. The traffic was diverted to allow for the K9 to search for the suspect. Unfortunately he was not found but our Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident.

  7. I think you should also tell us the city of residence of the arrested person. Are they San Ramon residents or residents of another city?

    1. Nancy,

      We debated including this information but from our perspective, it was not pertinent to the information we are trying to present to the public. We know where the individuals arrested are from, and some are from right here in San Ramon. Our concern is creating a divide within our region associated with where people live. The goal of this log is to inform the San Ramon Community of the arrests made by San Ramon Police Officers. It is not to point out where those arrested reside. We do not see any benefit to providing that information. It does not provide a crime prevention benefit, or a public safety benefit, because you cannot tell where someone is from by looking at them.

      I hope you understand our perspective . If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

      Lt. Denton Carlson
