PPD ALPR Transparency Portal is First-of-Its-Kind in the Nation

In our ongoing effort to strengthen our relationship with our community and increase transparency, the Piedmont Police Department is pleased to unveil the public ALPR Transparency Portal, a partnership with Flock Safety. The Transparency Portal is intended to encourage open communication between police and the public around Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology.

Chief of Police Jeremy Bowers stated, “This first-of-its-kind program demonstrates the Piedmont Police Department’s commitment to openness, accountability, and integrity. ALPR technology has been a critical tool in our public safety efforts. It’s important that our community has the ability to understand how we are using this technology in the furtherance of public safety.”

The Transparency Portal serves to provide the public a view into the Piedmont Police Department’s ALPR usage specific to its use of Flock Safety cameras, data retention, and policies. It provides a landmark approach to transparency and accountability by providing the public with anonymized audit logs of police usage of the technology. It also displays usage statistics, including the number of cameras the agency owns, other law enforcement agencies they share data with, and specific statistics on the number of vehicles captured, Hotlist alerts, and searches performed over the past 30 days. The Piedmont Police Department is working to transition its ALPR system entirely to Flock Safety which will eventually provide the public with more insight into the Piedmont Police Department’s ALPR usage.

While ALPR technology has proven to be an effective tool in preventing and solving crime in Piedmont, the Piedmont Police Department also recognizes the importance of being transparent and effectively demonstrating its use of this technology. Flock Safety has provided license plate reader technology to the Piedmont Police Department since 2020.

Flock Safety does not employ facial recognition, adheres to strict security standards and encryption standards, and does not share or sell customer data to third parties.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to their families and friends. Their sacrifices will not be forgotten! #StocktonPolice #SanLuisObispoPolice

May 9 through 15, is National Police Week.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day in recognition of those that have lost their lives in the service and protection of others.
This Week, the Piedmont Police Department would like to honor all the law enforcement officers who have given their lives protecting and serving the public. We do this today and every day by treating all those we encounter with dignity and respect, holding ourselves to the highest standards and continually exemplifying the best of policing.

Yesterday was a busy day for PPD Officers! With the help of our ALPR Cameras and an alert resident, we made several arrests and likely prevented several additional thefts.
It started in the early morning hours when the cameras alerted officers to a vehicle wanted in a residential burglary that occurred in Piedmont last week. Officers quickly responded to the area and located the vehicle. The occupants of the vehicle were both detained, interviewed and subsequently arrested and booked at Santa Rita Jail.
Last night we received a call from a resident who observed two subjects underneath her neighbor’s vehicle. Officers arrived and detained two subjects. During the contact they observed three reciprocating saws on the front seat of their vehicle. The vehicle was towed and both subjects were arrested and booked at Santa Rita Jail.
Shortly after that incident, officers were alerted again by the ALPR cameras of a stolen vehicle entering the City. The vehicle was quickly located, and the subjects were detained. Driver was arrested and later booked at jail.
Great work by all involved and a huge thank you to the resident that saw something and immediately called to report it. #protectingpiedmont

Morning Piedmonters,
Our community has seen an unprecedented number or window smash auto burglaries in the last two weeks and we need your help. We are asking residents to “Light up Piedmont”. Turn your outdoor lights on and leave them on all night. Park your vehicle in a well-lit area.
Practice good crime prevention measures:
Don not leave anything of value in your car.
Don’t ignore car alarms.
Park your car in a garage, if possible.
We have increased staffing throughout the night. If you see (or hear) something, call the police immediately! 510-420-3000.

A Message from Chief Bowers:

We know how difficult the trial in Minneapolis has been for our country and our community.

We anticipate that people will express themselves in different ways as we navigate the emotions of the outcome. Our Department is committed to protecting your constitutionally protected freedom of speech and assembly. As we have expressed last summer, we will not tolerate violence, or destruction of property. Our Department is committed to continuing to move forward together during these challenging times by maintaining a strong relationship with our community through a focus on trust, transparency, and approaching our differences with open and honest dialogue.
