The Pleasanton Police Department and BART Police Department marked the opening of their Joint Police Services Center at the West Dublin-Pleasanton BART Station last week, a move to support increased police presence that officials from both agencies hope will enhance public safety throughout that part of town.
The new center, located in the BART parking garage on the Pleasanton side of the BART station, represents Pleasanton PD's first substation within the city.
Financed by Workday and constructed by its contractor, the Joint Police Services Center is prominently located in a front corner of the garage, across the street from Stoneridge Shopping Center and not far from businesses, office buildings and homes located near the I-580/I-680 freeway interchange.
"This new joint services center is a big win for Pleasanton and BART to increase public safety in this area," City Manager Nelson Fialho said in a statement after the substation opened last Monday.
"This public-private partnership with Workday further demonstrates their commitment to maintaining and improving Pleasanton's quality of life through their recent investments in the Joint Police Services Center and new library," he added.
The new facility will be open Mondays through Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., "providing full police services along with new services that include Stoneridge Shopping Center watch and crime prevention and BART/Workday/Innovation Plaza patrol checks, as well as the relocation of permitting for taxi and massage technicians," according to city officials.
