Manny the Elf (Officer Troche) for the 5th year in a row partnered with community members to get donations for families in need. While working his area of the city, he delivered gifts and brought a little extra cheer. Officer Troche said, “ I grew up here, had my lights turned off here, was with a single mom of two crazy boys and was on assistance for awhile. I love giving back. The smiles I see honestly bring happy tears.”

Happy Holidays Hayward!

Earlier this month our sworn personnel participated in an 8-hour class focused on mental illness, intellectual disabilities and substance use disorders. It provided techniques to de-escalate and resolve conflict when answering calls that involve the mentally ill. We continuously train to try to safely resolve issues, regardless of the danger involved.

Reunited and it feels so good!

Last week a concerned community member called to report that an elderly man was walking up and down the street. The man got lost during his walk and his daughter was searching for him.

Our officers responded and were able to reunite the man with his daughter.

We were happy to make this reunion between father and daughter, and are so grateful for the call from one Hayward neighbor looking out for another.

Thanks.

Have you ever wondered why the Hayward Police Department has an armored vehicle? It’s for critical incidents like the one we were called to assist with last week. This photo is of our Tactical Rescue Vehicle or TRV (essentially a non-weaponized, modified Super Duty Ford truck that stops bullets).

Last week we were contacted by the Oakland Police Department because two subjects, who were wanted for attempted murder, were in the City of Hayward. Earlier in the day, the subjects shot at CHP officers and were able to get away. Around 8:00pm, our Special Response Unit (SWAT Team) responded, learned the tactical plan and went to the 400 block of Rousseau St.

Our Officers used the TRV for protection while members of our Crisis Negotiations Team called for the subjects to come outside. Fortunately, the subjects complied and were safely taken into custody without incident. Officers found guns inside the house and one of them was an assault rifle. We have an armored vehicle for this very reason: to keep officers and the community safe during dangerous situations.

Additionally, our Special Response Unit trains diligently to take on the toughest, most dangerous challenges. In the end, our goal is the safety of everyone and we got a win for the community that night.

We responded to a vehicle accident and found a woman driving one of the cars appeared to have been drinking. After a Field Sobriety Test, it was determined she was driving while drunk. A record’s check showed she was on probation for drug sales and had an order from a judge saying she needed to consent to a search. Officers located several baggies of cocaine, marijuana, a scale and cash.

Sadly, the woman’s 19-month-old daughter was in the car but was not injured. We were able to get an adult to pick her up and keep her safe for the night.

Two arrested in connection with the attempted murder of officers.

For Immediate Release: December 2, 2020

The Oakland Police Department (OPD) makes arrests in connection to an attempted murder of two California Highway Patrol Officers. OPD officers and members of the Hayward Police Department’s Special Response Unit took two male adults into custody without incident, in the 400 block of Rousseau Street in Hayward around 10 PM Tuesday.
“These officers and our community were put in great peril and we appreciate the important information we received from our community which led to the arrest of these two extremely dangerous individuals. We are thankful that no one was injured and greatly appreciate the hard work and dedication of the men and women who risk their lives to keep our community safe, “Interim Oakland Police Chief Susan E. Manheimer.

“Last night’s operation was reflective of the dedication and professionalism of our officers and of the strong partnership that exists between local law enforcement agencies as we work collectively to pursue justice. In the midst of a pandemic, and as violent crime rates and firearms seizures continue to rise, our law enforcement officers remain steadfast in their efforts to keep our communities safe.”Chief Toney Chaplin Hayward Police Department .
Officers also recovered a firearm at the scene. The case will be presented to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for charging.

Background:
The Oakland Police Department (OPD) Homicide Division is investigating an attempted murder of an officer. The incident occurred on December 1, 2020, at approximately 1:46 AM. California Highway Patrol (CHP) advised OPD's Communications Division of a vehicle pursuit in the 9800 block of Golf Links Road. CHP stated their officers attempted to conduct an enforcement stop on a vehicle that sped past them. The vehicle was traveling upwards of 100 MPH eastbound on Interstate 580 before exiting the 98th Avenue off-ramp.
CHP advised during the pursuit, an occupant within the vehicle shot at their officers in the 2700 block of 98th Avenue. CHP officers did not return gunfire and lost sight of the vehicle. Thankfully, no officers or community members were injured.
Oakland Police Officers immediately responded to the area and assisted CHP with a search. The vehicle was found abandoned near Thermal Avenue and Seneca Street. Witnesses told officers the driver of the vehicle collided with a parked car and three occupants fled the area.
#OPDCARES initiative is about working together as a community to help stop the tragic loss of life and reduce the level of violence in our city. Collectively, we want to ensure Oaklanders and our visitors are safe in our community.

As of November 19, we had already seized 197 guns used in crimes or in the hands of people prohibited from possessing firearms. Another one has just been added to the list. These do not include those which might have been taken by other agencies working within our city. Since the Covid-19 Pandemic, 167 of these guns have been seized. In 2019, we seized 159 guns total and are on pace to seize nearly 30% more in 2020.

Hayward, our officers are out there trying their best to protect the streets and keep this great community safe.

A few nights ago K9 Officer Higgins and his Police Service Dog, Arwin, responded to Castro Valley to help Alameda County Sheriff’s Office with a burglary at a bank. After negotiations, the suspect refused to exit. Arwin was released and successfully apprehended the suspect. In the process Arwin got a cut on his nose and the poor little guy had to get 13 stiches. He is recovering just fine and will be ready to work again soon.

We received complaints of drug activity in a local apartment complex. Our Special Duty Unit responded to the area and saw a man they recognized to have multiple felony warrants. They arrested the man and found he was in possession of a sizeable amount of drugs. Another man in the same complex was located in a stolen car. When the car was searched, additional drugs and a loaded gun were found. Guess what? Yep, this man was a convicted felon. Both men were arrested and we took a gun and drugs off the street.

Last week our officers stopped a car for a moving violation. The driver was found to be unlicensed and his car was getting towed. During a pat search, officers found a loaded handgun in the man’s waistband.

He was a convicted felon and a judge granted a warrant for his nearby hotel room to be searched. Officers not only found another loaded handgun in his hotel room but also a bulletproof vest. Interesting! We are glad to have two more guns, in the wrong hands, off the street.

A family is home in North Hayward when some clown decides to steal their child’s bike. The suspect was a clown… as in a grotesquely dressed comedic performer in a circus type of clown… Our officers got to the area and the clown, dressed in full clown regalia: a bright red clown outfit with white polka dots and a neon orange wig, is stopped. Rumor has it the officers said, “don’t try anything funny” (or they wished they had). The bike is returned to the mom who asked, “did you catch that bozo?”(okay…she didn’t say bozo). Anyhow, one clown in jail and a little girl got her bike back. The suspect’s reasoning for dressing up like a clown? “I wanted to be as high as a clown.” He didn’t understand the saying is “high as a kite.” ……. Seriously he did say this….What a clown!

He is finally staying locked up! A few weeks ago we told you the story of “Crocs and Glocks.” Well, during that same incident we arrested another subject with a gun who was with the Croc wearing bandit. The subject was stopped last week and guess what? You’re right, he had a gun.

He has been arrested THREE times and we have taken FOUR guns from him in the past TWO months. This time our Special Duty Unit wrote and served a warrant at his house where gun making material was found. He is locked up and we hope the community is a tad bit safer because of it.
