Michaela Garecht

Tremendous News today from the Hayward Police Department in announcing the arrest of the suspect in the Michaela Garecht Kidnapping and Murder Case. For 32 years, Hayward Police never stopped working for Michaela. Their commitment to Michaela and her family is commendable and unwavering. This gives great hope to other families of murdered and missing children. It also inspires us to continue on with the work we are doing on similar cases. We will never quit.

Our various duty stations around the County have been very busy spreading cheer. Our Crime Prevention Unit’s Annual Toy Drive concluded with lots of smiles on the faces of the families in the communities we serve. Santa and his law enforcement helpers were determined to make this Christmas as bright and cheery as possible. We want to thank all of our community partners, citizens and staff who helped to make this event a success. #communitycapitalspolicing #acsocares #communitysupport #welovekids

Many schools are closed during these tough times. Families who receive food support for breakfast and lunch through meal programs provided by the school district for their children are missing that support. Every month our school resources officers & the San Lorenzo Unified School District support families in the district in need of food and supplies in an effort to fill that void. In light of the holidays an extra drive thru giveaway was done to support the families in the community we serve. #communitystrong #communitycapitalspolicing #wecare #healthyliving #ACSOCares

After Three Decades of service we will be leaving the Peralta Community College District. Our staff greatly enjoyed this assignment and many of us had exceptional experiences and careers here. We hope someday they will realize they made a mistake in defunding their police services. We hope the students and faculty stay safe and get the protection and service they deserve. We are going to miss everyone and thank you to all past and present who worked this great assignment.

In two weeks, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office will no longer patrol the Peralta Colleges. Instead, unarmed guards from local firms will handle security at Laney College, Merritt College and College of Alameda. (The Berkeley City College already has an existing contract with a security firm). Journalists with The Peralta Citizen have uncovered issues with contracting, licensing and certification with some of the firms.

In 2010, in conjunction with our Deputy Sheriff’s Activities League we created Dig Deep Farms as a way of providing healthy food and jobs to people living in the community and those returning to society from the justice system through re-entry programs. ABC 7 highlights some of the program’s benefits and how the program has helped during the pandemic.

GOLF CART BANDIT

About 8am, this suspect was released from Santa Rita Jail after he was cited on a drug possession charge hours before.

Instead of just walking to the BART Station, he decided to steal the ground keepers golf cart with attached trailer and gardening tools. The cart was locked with no key in the ignition.

He abandoned the cart at a nearby shopping center and left on foot toward Dublin BART. We were able to locate and detain him for the theft.

We gave him a ride back to Santa Rita Jail in a police car. The cart was recovered. He will likely be released again due to the new bail schedule.

Some people are blaming us for this incident and saying it wasn’t his fault he stole the cart. That we created the opportunity for him to steal. That just doesn’t make sense.

For the past month we have been collecting new, unwrapped toys for our Crime Prevention Unit’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive. Many have answered the call to make this very unique holiday season special for the children in the communities we serve. In this line of work, not much surprises us. However, Brian Liang of Danville surprised us with this amazing donation of toys to help our cause. People like Brian make this world a little brighter.

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Mr. Christopher Moss is the latest student to pass his GED as a participant of Five Keys at the Santa Rita Jail. When he began class in March 2020 he returned to school needing over 110 credits to graduate. In March when we were able to do assessment testing (pre-Covid-19), his scores reflected a seventh grade level. Over the prevailing months he worked diligently on completing work toward his high school diploma.

After he completed about 40 units, his work showed continued improvement and growth. Since the establishment of the Five Keys phone help line, Moss checked in with his teacher (Ms. Moreno; first photo) on a regular basis with homework questions and strategies. Based on the academic progress Moss made, the GED test was offered to him. The GED is a difficult test and many who take often have to retake sections. Moss was able to pass the test on his first try. Since enrolling in Five Keys, he has shown a high degree of commitment, focus and determination that is quite commendable. He plans to continue with school to earn his High School Diploma.

Very misleading reporting to the public by KTVU Fox 2 .This individual caused their own injuries due to erratic behavior. Our staff acted with compassion and care and was 100% professional. The investigation shows no wrongdoing at all!

Jolynn McCabe's situation - calling dispatch for a non-criminal emergency that ended in handcuffs and injury - puts a renewed focus on reforming police departments and what society can do better to help those facing a mental health crisis.

Yesterday our @AC_DSAL Boxing Academy coaches passed out boxes of groceries w/complete Thanksgiving dinner fixings to 15 families in our service community. This was made possible by Coach Manny Villalon (1st photo, far left) who ran 100 miles in the “Running for Our Community” event between 11/16-11/22 to raise funds for families in need during these trying times. Coaches Vic Law and Sergeant Montigue assisted by preparing the boxes and handing them out to families. These coaches do more than teach fitness and boxing techniques. They really care about the families who participate in our Boxing Academy. #wecare #communitycapitalspolicing #runningforourcommunity
