Here come the donut jokes. But it’s okay because we actually love them! Yesterday, Headquarters kicked off Public Employee Appreciation Week by saying, “Thanks a hole bunch” to Finance, Payroll and Support Staff for all their hard work.

Other units were shown appreciation today. The goodies just keep popping up in various offices throughout the agency.

Today, Sheriff Ahern presented Sergeant Jeffery Hazelitt with a Commendation for the excellent leadership he displayed on April 6, 2021, when he and several deputies responded to a suicidal subject in crisis in Terminal 1 at Oakland’s International Airport. When Alameda County’s Community Assessment & Transportation Team was unable to respond, Sergeant Hazelitt drew from his Urban Shield and Crisis Intervention training to safely end a nearly four hour negotiation with the subject who was later sent to the hospital for psychiatric treatment.

Congratulations, Sergeant Hazelitt! Job well done.

Last night around 10:30 p.m., our Eden Township Division deputies received a broadcast from Emergency Services Dispatch regarding an intoxicated subject who left a residence on Rainier Avenue in Hayward with two juveniles in the vehicle with him. Based on the safety risk to the juveniles inside the vehicle, deputies searched the area for the vehicle. Deputy Letica subsequently located the suspect vehicle at Hanks Liquors on Meekland Avenue. The suspect was located in the driver seat passed out with an open container of alcohol. Only one child was located inside the vehicle. Deputy Howard (pictured here) safely removed the child, who was unharmed, from the vehicle. Deputies responded to the Rainier Avenue address in an effort to locate the second child. The child was located safely inside the residence. During our investigation, we also determined that a felony domestic violence incident had occurred. The suspect was arrested for felony domestic, felony child endangerment and driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater.

No two days are the same at our Regional Training center. We train hard, but we also take time to enjoy the beautiful land and creatures in our surroundings.

Fun fact: Goats love cheerful facial expressions. They have a rich emotional life similar to humans. They love physical touch, smiley faces and are happy to be around their favorite person.

Recruit Training Officers Deputy Stillman, Sergeant Basilio and Deputy Kahoali’i (2nd photo: l-r) obviously enjoyed the moment as well.

This is Deputy Anmole Kaur. She left a position as an explorer with another agency to become a cadet with us. Deputy Kaur saw everything we offer here at the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office and wanted a diverse law enforcement career. She graduated our 169th Academy a couple of months ago and, as you can see by the expression on her face, she knew she made the right choice.

We are proud of our Regional Training Center (RTC), which provides education and training to our staff and outside agencies throughout our region and beyond. No duty is more urgent than the training that goes into the work we do in law enforcement. We could not do it without these fabulous people who work behind the scene to keep our RTC going day after day.

In honor of Administrative Professionals Day, we want to acknowledge and thank them (featured here with Lieutenant Justin Miguel at the rear of the photo) for everything they do to support us, our recruits and our guest agencies.

We have great administrative professionals throughout our agency. They all make us better!!

Sheriff’s Technicians Jerilyn Martens (left) and Ashley Minkin work in our Ready Room at the Santa Rita Jail. They greet deputies at the beginning/end of their shifts; they check equipment in/out; and, many days they even have sweet treats to share with staff. They’re pretty awesome!

For Immediate Release:

Officer Involved Shooting:

FAIRVIEW DISTRICT (Unincorporated Hayward)-About 4:00am, patrol deputies responded to the 24900 block of Second St. A male suspect armed with a loaded handgun attempted to shoot a deputy. The suspect fired multiple rounds and one of the bullets grazed the head of our deputy. Deputies returned fire and killed the suspect.

About 3:40am, We were called to the scene by multiple callers who stated a man was threatening and confronting them with a gun. Deputies established a perimeter and searched the area on foot. The suspect had a considerable period of time to think about his actions before he opened fire on our deputies.

The suspect is a 26 year old Filipino male with an extensive and violent criminal history for shootings, assaults, robbery, weapons, burglary and auto theft.

Detectives and Crime Lab personnel are on scene collecting evidence and speaking with witnesses.

We are extremely fortunate that our deputies and members of the community were not killed.

We are in the process of notifying the deceased suspects family. We will release his name after that time.

One of the hardest things to do is to get humble people to allow you to show them appreciation or special attention of any kind. It’s #nationalpublicsafetytelecommunicationsweek and our behind the scenes All Stars from Emergency Services Dispatch (ESD) had to be persuaded to step in front of the camera for some well deserved recognition. Thanks for all you do for the public and our agency!

This week our Santa Rita Jail Civil Litigation and Special Investigations Units represented our agency virtually at the American Jail Association International Conference held (April 10-14) in Columbus, Ohio. Our investigators and support staff outlined policies, procedures and best practices for conducting thorough and efficient civil and criminal investigations in detentions and corrections settings. Both units are comprised of seasoned investigators who have many years of experience conducting investigations in patrol and detentions and corrections settings. It was truly an honor to have our agency invited to present to agencies from around the world.

Today, Oakland City Councilmember (District 5) @noel.gallod5 invited our AC Transit Police Services deputies to a charity car wash at Fremont High School in Oakland to raise much needed funds to assist with medical expenses for Kika (Juan). Kika, a victim of gun violence, was left paralyzed from the waist down due to this tragedy. It was a pleasure to take part in the event. We wish Kika and his family well.

PRESS RELEASE

Oakland, CA - Today, 4/6/21, around 6:00 a.m., our Oakland Airport Police Services (APS) deputies responded to Terminal 1 to assist an individual having a mental health crisis. The subject had given a note indicating he needed help to an TSA employee. That employee promptly alerted APS deputies. Deputies arrived at the terminal and located a Black male in his late 30s to early 40s who appeared agitated. As deputies approached, the subject pulled a large, bladed knife from a backpack in his possession and held it to his throat.

Deputies, TSA and Port of Oakland staff worked quickly to evacuate the lobby of Terminal 1 and the terminal’s front curb area for public safety purposes. Members of our Crisis Intervention Unit arrived on scene within minutes and began negotiations with the subject.

After nearly four hours of de-escalation negotiations, the subject remained highly agitated and refused to cooperate with deputies. Ultimately, a taser was deployed. The subject was still able to maintain a firm grip on the knife during the deployment and raise it to his throat. A responding sergeant saw this and, after a brief struggle over the knife, was able to disarm the subject of the knife and detain him. During the struggle, the subject was able to graze his neck with the tip of the knife. He sustained a minor cut on his neck but was otherwise in good physical health and was taken to the hospital for treatment. No one else on scene was injured.

Deputies on the perimeter outside the terminal located an unoccupied, black SUV without a license plate parked just outside the terminal. We believed the vehicle was possibly connected to the subject after a piece of paper visible on its front seat also read “help.” During this incident, several airlines were impacted and initially people were not able to board their flights. We worked with airport staff to accommodate passengers and get that matter resolved as soon as time permitted.

As of now, we are still uncertain as to what caused the subject to experience the mental health crisis that unfolded this morning. We are, however, proud of the hard work, patience and collaborations between our staff, TSA, the Port of Oakland and the Oakland Police Department’s Public Information Officer.
