It is National Public Safety Communications Week. We always appreciate our dispatchers; however, this week has been especially difficult. Our dispatchers have continued to provide excellent service to our communities while learning a new way of doing their job. We appreciate all of the hard work you're putting in to ensure the community members receive professional service and the officers get to their calls safely. Unsung heroes, we thank you.

*************** Armed Carjacking Arrests ************

On 2/15/22 at approximately 1 PM Hercules PD units heard the CHP was in pursuit of an Carjacking suspect vehicle on Highway 4 westbound, approaching Hercules. CHP then announced they lost sight of the vehicle. Hercules Officers set themselves up in positions to intercept the vehicle if it came into town. A few minutes later it did.

Officers engaged in a short pursuit of the vehicle as it headed westbound on SR-4 onto John Muir Parkway but due to the excessive speed lost sight of it as it passed San Pablo Ave. A perimeter was quickly established and with the help of Contra Costa Sheriff's Deputies, CHP ground and Air units, and Pinole Dispatch, a coordinated effort to locate the two suspects began.

After a short search and with the help of alert residents on John Muir Parkway we were able to locate both suspects as they tried to flee on foot.

Luckily no one was injured during this incident and two dangerous felons are off the street.

Both suspects were juveniles; a 16 year old male from Oakland and a 16 year old female from Cupertino. The vehicle was stolen at gunpoint in Oakland on 2/13/22.

This past weekend Officer Lazo came to work her graveyard shift carrying a large box of supplies and treats she put together on her days off. When asked about it by her Supervisor she told him she created a bunch of different baggies with hygiene supplies, snacks, and treats for kids because she was tired of meeting people in need while on patrol and not having anything to offer them to help.

In case you have not met Officer Lazo yet, she is one of our newest Officers, just graduating from our Field Training Program in November of 2021. With acts of caring like this she is quickly demonstrating her commitment to community policing and policing with compassion. We are very proud of the work Officer Lazo is doing protecting the residents of Hercules, but even more proud of her initiative and her heart.

On January 26, 2022, at 4:32 pm, officers were dispatched to the area of Redwood Rd and Lupine Rd. for the report of a drunk subject with a gun in his hand, standing in front of the callers house. Dispatch notified responding Officers that the subject had gone inside his home and 5 - 6 shots were heard.

Officers setup a perimeter with the assistance of the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff, issued a lockdown for the Community Center which backed up to the area, and broadcast a shelter-in-place order for the area through the County Office of Emergency Services center. After speaking with the reporting party and a witness, Officers were able contact the subject via phone and after several hours were able to convince him to come out of the house peacefully.

The subject was detained and after a protective search was done of the residence we were able to determine that no one was injured as a result of this incident.

We would like to thank the Contra Costa County Sheriff and the Pinole Police Department for their assistance during this stressful incident, and all those affected by the lockdown and shelter order for your patience and understanding. As a result this potentially dangerous situation was resolved peacefully and safely.

We were a little busy at the Safeway gas station yesterday. Aside from the vehicle fire you might have seen some police activity around 9:00 AM.

One of the Flock cameras recorded a vehicle that was taken during an armed carjacking in Oakland on October 21st. The vehicle was on Willow Ave coming off of the loop near the BART lot. An observant Officer saw the vehicle pull into the gas station, stop and the occupants flee on foot.

Both occupants were stopped and detained without incident, and identified. The driver was arrested for being in possession of a stolen vehicle and for unrelated warrants. The passenger was eventually released.

Fortunately no one was injured, the suspects complied with the Officers, and the vehicle was recovered safely.

As Women’s History Month comes to a conclusion for 2021, UCPD would like to recognize retired Captain Connie Van Putten. Connie began her career with the San Diego Police Department in April 1973 as SDPD’s first female patrol officer. She served with distinction as an officer and detective before being promoted as SDPD’s first female sergeant, and later as SDPD’s first female lieutenant. In March 1988, she was hired by the Union City Police Department and became UCPD’s first female command officer at the rank of Captain. Connie was the commander for the Field Operations Division, Administrative Services Division, and the Records and Communications Division. In addition to her dedicated service to the Union City Police Department, Connie remained dedicated in assisting the youth. In 1998, the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America nationally recognized Connie with the Silver Beaver award. In December 2000, Connie retired from the Union City Police Department after 27 years of law enforcement service, but she did not stop there. Connie became a reserve officer for the Hercules Police Department, where she currently serves as the Public Information Officer. In April 2018, Connie was awarded Contra Costa County Woman of the Year by US Representative Mike Thompson for her contributions to the community. UCPD is proud to recognize retired Captain Connie Van Putten as she has made her impact in law enforcement history for over +48 years! #ucpdca #womenshistorymonth #myunioncity

To help and supervised the painting . Who also stepped up to make a new decoration for the backdrop for day two. Since it was so 🔥 hot. Our balloons deflated and popped. Thank you , to our Elementary Schools who made posters to show support. We had Teachers who make signs for their fifth grade class.. That our now our Hercules High Seniors. ❤ Thank you to our city businesses who donated. Thank you to our Hercules City Council and City Manager who also supported us with a nice sign and show of support. Thank you Mr. Mansingh for asking for my support and suggestions.
