Manor Truck Route Change Proposal Survey. The City of San Leandro is evaluating whether the truck route on Beatrice Street and Kesterson Street should be eliminated and replaced with a truck route on Farnsworth Street from Lewelling Boulevard to Manor Boulevard. The City's truck route was implemented over 50 years ago and has not been modified since. During this time, the Washington Manor neighborhood has grown in its residential population and commercial prosperity. The truck route identifies the acceptable streets for truck traffic to service businesses primarily adjacent or near Manor Boulevard. Before any decisions are made, we’d like to hear from you.

PG&E rotating outages

PG&E has issued a notice for rolling power outages at an unspecified time tonight that will last between 1-2 hours. The affected areas in San Leandro include neighborhoods between Marina and Williams, east of 880, as well as Estabrook Street. You may utilize the following link to see if your neighborhood will be affected: https://www.pge.com/en_US/residential/outages/planning-and-preparedness/safety-and-preparedness/find-your-rotating-outage-block/find-your-rotating-outage-block.page#find-your-block-for-rotating-outage

When California’s power grid is under strain, the statewide grid operator may ask PG&E and other utilities to initiate rotating outages. Small groups of customers will experience short-term outages on a rotating basis. This is to prevent a large area from being blacked out for a longer period.

Police Chief Appointed

Abdul Pridgen, Police Chief, has been appointed by City Manager Fran Robustelli to serve as the next Police Chief of San Leandro, effective September 13, 2021. Chief Susan Manheimer will continue her interim service until September 12, 2021.

Chief Pridgen comes to San Leandro after serving as the police chief of the City of Seaside. Prior to Seaside, Chief Pridgen spent 26 years with the City of Fort Worth, Texas, Police Department where he attained the highest rank of assistant chief of police.

“Chief Pridgen is a well-respected law enforcement veteran, who is an advocate for diversity, inclusion, and a community builder,” said City Manager Fran Robustelli. “Chief Pridgen will provide immediate attention to pressing needs, such as transparency, investment into personnel, and implementing police oversight for the department.”

In response to his appointment, Chief Pridgen stated, “It is an honor to be gifted the chance to serve the dedicated men and women of the San Leandro Police Department and the rich, diverse group of San Leandrans. Our profession faces many challenges, but we have a tremendous opportunity to set an example for progressive, procedurally just, transparent, accountable, and community-focused policing. I look forward to working closely with all of our internal and external stakeholders to make the San Leandro Police Department a pioneering model of contemporary policing for others to emulate.”

Chief Pridgen received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice from Dallas Baptist University and his Master of Public Administration from Tarleton State University. In addition, he received training from the Southern Police Institute, FBI National Academy, FBI National Executive Institute, and Harvard University Kennedy School of Government. Chief Pridgen serves as the president of the California Police Chiefs Association.

Message from Police Chief Eric R. Nuñez, Los Alamitos Police Department, on Chief Pridgen's appointment

For the last three years, Chief Abdul Pridgen has been a steadfast colleague serving on the Board of Directors for the California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA). Over this last year, while I served as President of CPCA, Chief Pridgen served as the 2nd Vice President and due to an early retirement of one of our members, he got pushed up to 1st Vice President position during one of the most difficult periods in our Nation’s history, but with command, he rose to the occasion to help lead us through a global pandemic and national civil unrest. He did an incredible job covering for me for 6 weeks, as I was battling COVID-19 and handled media inquires and legislative meetings in my stead. It is safe to say that we have went from respected professional colleagues to trusted friends over this past year.

Chief Pridgen is a tested leader and one with vision, character and the wisdom to understand the complexities of our profession and how to better serve the public safety needs of our communities. He also possesses the emotional intelligence necessary to maintain and improve on the quality-of-life issues for San Leandro and the State of California as it relates to community and public safety.

As the current President of CPCA, I can assure you that law enforcement leadership and the profession in general are being left in the most capable hands. Chief Pridgen has already demonstrated his commitment to transparency and accountability in our profession to our legislative leaders and has a tremendous amount of willingness to work with our lawmakers to produce meaningful and reasonable police reform legislation.

When Chief Pridgen asked me to provide a statement commemorating his appointment, he told me how blessed he felt for having this opportunity to lead such a fine police department and to serve such an incredible community. I responded that San Leandro is equally blessed to have such a committed, dedicated, ethical, caring and proven leader to serve as their next Police Chief.

I wish my colleague and friend congratulations and want the community of San Leandro and Police Department to know they are in for an experience in authentic leadership and the best of class at the rank of Police Chief.

Why do the District employees at the top of the San Leandro Unified School District make $200,000 - $400,000 in salary and benefits? Do these employees deserve that much money?
Hi. I’m not sure where to report this so I’ll post it here. There is a downed street sign on the corner of Wainwright and Navy behind John Muir Middle School. If we get strong winds again it could damage property.
New Years Eve. Remember to clean your house and have your financial affairs in order (HA!). At midnight, ring bells, bang pots and pans, yell, make as much noise as possible to scare this year away! (Don't shoot guns please, because what goes up must come down.) And then play this song at top volume to positively charge all the slime in the country for a better 2021!
Anybody else just get this alert? "SLPD along with OPD is in the area of E 14th/Euclid looking for a subject who is possibly armed with a gun. Subject is described as a black male 23 yrs old with a black puffy jacket and dark jeans. If you live in the immediate area please shelter in place and contact SLPD at 510 577 2740 if you come in contact with the subject."
Gyms and fitness centers Can open outdoors only with modifications Please encourage gyms in San Leandro to open outdoors.
How come the city of San Leandro won't let 24 Hour Fitness open outdoor gyms at both of its San Leandro locations???
Remember that everyone can watch Santa's worldwide journey tonight on the NORAD Santa tracker!
I REALLY MISS MY GYM. I miss training at the gyms that I go to that are closed. I haven't been able to lift weights almost all year 2020. Outdoor gyms are okay but the indoor gyms have much better equipment. The gyms I go to are some of the cleanest places in California. They clean regularly. People are hand sanitizing. Wiping down equipment with clorox and disinfectant all the time. I need my gym. Gyms are much cleaner than Walmarts which just allow people to pack in and who knows when Walmarts have last been cleaned.
