Thanks Pleasanton PD Around Town, posted by Pro Law, a resident of the Highland Oaks neighborhood, on Jun 10, 2007 at 5:20 pm
The Pleasanton Police Department does such a great job and it doesn’t get recognized nearly enough. We all realize the great work being done by the employees over there by living in this community, but do we ever really pause to say thanks to the people working the hardest for us?
If you enjoy the quality of life in Pleasanton, why not take a moment of your time to mail or even e-mail the Pleasanton PD in general, or maybe a certain officer - simply to say thanks.
Our officers and other Pleasanton PD employees deserve to hear feedback on the great job they are doing. It is a 24 hour, 7 day a week job I know many of us are not willing nor capable of doing.

you know i haven't really ever heard any possitives, from people that were born and raised in this city. considering it is those people who truelly consider this their town, their concerns should be noted. which doesn't really happen. i've called the police a few times for situations in my complex. and nothing happends. but if someone is outside of a bar having a cigerette, they can end up with a drunk in public. what is that. the same officers giving us the DARE catalog of drugs, that are hitting on and dating their former students, are the ones so quick to put someone in the drunk tank. my dare officer i know from personally experience, to be very difficult. he arrested me one time for walking from el blazo from door to my cab, for what trying to be responsible and not drive drunk. or is it to pick on a personal vendetta. i guess only he knows. but as i went to court the case was mysteriously dropped, why because there was no wrong-doing on my end but on his. i spent the 24 hrs in custody freezing, with no bed no food. but i definate sour taste for him and ppd. this guy and alot of them are a joke. don't people need to do something wrong to go to jail. i thought so but it seems, drunk in public can happen anywhere with no tests or anything, i asked him to give me a breathelizer, to show i only had a few and was probably under .08. but that didn't happen. go to a local bar on a friday or saturday, and you will see it happen almost every nite. worthless police services, and a waste of yours and my tax dollars.

I was asked if I wanted to press charges for an incident I was involved in. My response was "NO." A week later, I get a call from the PPD saying that the district attorney is dropping the case. I didn't understand why the incident was filed with the court when I had distinctly said I do not want to press charges. That's just another example of the PPD misusing its position of power.
Anyone ever notice cops going 50mph in a 35mph zone?
