Walnut Creek Police Department 94596
I called the police department for a disturbing the peace complaint, and I was told that there was nothing they could do. There were citizens standing on the corner of Ygnacio and civic holding signs, causing drivers to honk their horns for hours on end. There are private residence all around and we all pay a lot of money to live here and deserve peace. This police department is a joke! Why even bother complaining to them, they won’t help you.
This department uses gestapo tactics to abuse individuals (the citizens they are paid to protect) who are on foot walking to the grocery store. \n\nMy friend was wearing black because he had to go to his grandma’s funeral earlier in the day. While he was on the sidewalk walking to the grocery store, a walnut creek police department cop stopped him for essentially no reason (\”we’ve had break-ins in the past in this area… some guys on bicycles…\”) and called him \”the unibomber\” in some misguided attempt to provoke him. This happened between 10:00PM and 11:30PM on the night of Sunday, January 15th, 2017 within two hundred yards of the new Safeway plaza at 2800 Ygnacio Valley Rd, walnut creek, CA. What walnut creek lacks in diversity is made up for by cops that persecute based on how individuals dress. It really epitomizes the atrocious nature of the walnut creek police department when they persecute pedestrians based on their appearance on the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
I appreciate and support LE. You have no idea! In places like SF and Berkeley I don’t know why they event show up for work. Nevertheless I can only say this is my experience in recent times. LE needs to understand that while they experience stops as a one-time blase encounter, the public does not. Nor when we call to no avail, it’s hard to digest. Community relations should be an important part of LE. I myself for even more reasons, no longer feel comfortable reaching out to local LE. 1. My husband walked home, then realizing he forgot his key, headed back toward downtown to wait for me last Friday before 9:00 p.m. He was stopped in the CVS parking lot. The reason is that \”we cannot have drunk people walking around here\”. He wasn’t drunk and the officer gruffly told him to be careful? However the police log in my brief review shows very limited arrests for drunkenness and DUI?? 2. We had our car towed and impounded on a hot summer day because we paid for but didn’t complete our registration as we were saving for smog repairs. Our car was not visibly damaged nor emitting smoke. We were left on the sidewalk with the curious onlookers gathered, with our golf clubs and other valuables in the sweltering heat. Because we are a danger to the community we were told. It cost hundreds – we had to pay 180.00 to the PD alone plus impound yard and dmv fees. We had to turn off the car so I opened the door and was warned to close it. It was 100 degrees. 3. I’ve been pulled over for DUI having never left my car but taking my friend to retrieve her wallet. \”I saw you leave the bar\”. 4. I saw a bicyclist chasing a man in a suit threatening and swinging a metal pipe at this terrified man walking in the CVS parking lot. Horrifying. When I called she said \”it’s probably just the homeless people\”. 5. Finally during a pro-police rally after the Oscar Grant shooting and ensuing riots, the PD issued no notification to Broadway plaza, Target or nearby businesses who might have been able to close or take precautions should it get out of hand as was the case in nearby communities. A counter protest was also organized. I myself called so my friends working in town and merchants would know. The WCPD were not interested in my concern when I called them. \n\nWhile some think that it’s safer for the community to contact anyone for no reason unfortunately the law doesn’t permit that. And for those of us that don’t enjoy or appreciate random contact or detention, it’s not right. You’re chances of being believed over an officer are 8%. Please see ACLU for your rights and how to manage police contact. And have a family conversation to prepare young people. All the best.
Officer Smith responded to a call at my house because my truck was broken into and my sound system was stolen. I was extremely impressed at how professional he was. He explained everything to me in detail, was extremely friendly and helpful. I know WCPD have bigger fish to fry than a measly break in and theft but from the time he got there until the time he left l felt like he showed alot of compassion and it put me at ease that l really felt like he cared. If every officer was like him, we’d be doing pretty good. Give the man a promotion!
