I just checked with the Pleasanton P.D.

This was a routine traffic stop, but the driver bolted, so the extra officers were brought in to track him down. He's been caught and the cars are gone.

I saw the cars to and Glenn I'm pretty sure it was more than a traffic stop. I drove around the area and must have seen at least thirty police cars, more than I though pleasanton ever had.

One time I was pulled over for expired registration (forgot to register) and a total of 3 patrol cars showed up and was there until I got my ticket and drove off. The one thing we have plenty of in Ptown are cops, cops, and more cops.

"The one thing we have plenty of in Ptown are cops, cops, and more cops". And we also have at least one cop who was bright enough to connect the dots and rescue a 13 yr old girl who was being sexually abused by a pedophile (see other article in the Weekly). I would vote for more cops like that any day. Oh, the guy was busted after a routine traffic stop too.

Concerned Parent, I have the same question. For 10 years I have been watching drivers drive through crosswalks with children in them on their way to and from school. I see drivers go through red lights while children on bikes are crossing on their way to school. Where are the Pleasanton police?

Pleasnton has one of the BEST police departments in the entire state. I for one am glad to see them everyday
