ACSO accreditation

A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA) are scheduled to conduct a virtual assessment of Alameda County Sheriff's Office policies and procedures, management, operations and support services starting on Monday.

The process aims to identify how agencies comply with CALEA standards of best practices in law enforcement. Each accreditation status lasts four years.

Due to the pandemic, assessors will be analyzing ACSO remotely. A public call-in session is set for Tuesday from 1-3 p.m. via 415-915-3950, after which the public hearing will occur. Visit calea.alamedacountysheriff.org.

Laughs onstage

Comedian Steve Treviño, billed as "America's Favorite husband," will perform five shows at Tommy T's Comedy Club in Pleasanton from next Friday through Sunday (April 9-11).

Treviño, a Mexican American comic, finds humor in all walks of life and developed a comedy special, "My Life in Quarantine," taking on the brutal realization that he was nonessential and finding laughs in the etiquette of face masks and hand sanitizing, and headlining specials for Amazon, Netflix and Showtime. He also raises money for Helicopters for Heroes to benefit veterans. For tickets, visit tommyts-com.
