Contra Costa Sheriff Opens Patrol Annex Near Pleasant Hill BART

April 22, 2019 10:00 am · 11 comments

The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office has opened a new patrol annex in a space within the Contra Costa Centre commercial zone in unincorporated Walnut Creek.

The small space, according to the sheriff’s office, will serve as a dedicated work space for sheriff’s deputies working this unincorporated area as well as other parts of central Contra Costa.

It will also give the sheriff’s office greater visibility in the small area bordered by Walnut Creek, Concord and Pleasant Hill.

Wonder how many people will interpret this to mean they will focus on BART? Remember BART is its own public entity with its own police. It is not the Sheriff’s jurisdiction.

Where is it? I mean exactly where is it?

The tall male is the Sheriff – David Livingston

It looks to be on the ground floor of the buildings across the parking lot South of the station. You remember the mixed use development that is so popular with your politicians. The ones that have been empty for years. I see Karen Mitchoff smiling away on the left. Our supervisor who still can’t get it through her head that keeping the PH library open during construction is more important than getting money from her union buddies. Keep smiling Karen.

Having lived near the PH Bart for 20 years I can attest to the fact that there are many problems because of the station. Transits are the problem, of course, who hop off a train and break into cars by smashing windows, a daily event that was nerve-wracking. The homeless also cause some serious problems. They caused a fire in a vacant building where they were living and the structure had to be torn down. Train stations are necessary but, sadly, they are a magnet for trouble.

And what, exactly, is going to change here?

Criminals headed to BART at this station will be apprehended right there by the deputies.

Sheriff opens Patrol Annex? I see a key problem.

What a lovely picture. Key to success? I don’t think so but best of luck!
