the only reason the police think they are so good is because they arrest SOMEBODY. one time they arrested me, told me they knew i didnt do anything and charged me for FOUR felonies i didnt commit. Another time i was arrested for getting beat up by a BOY at school. good work policemen.

Thanks, Pleasanton PD. We're not all trolls and many do appreciate the hard work you do!

Thanks, Pleasanton PD! I agree with the previous poster that the proposal of mandating low income/high density housing in the city limits will absolutely reverse this trend.
They intend to lower commute times, but what about the criminals that commute from Oakland, Richmond and Tracy? They drive their stolen cars/vans all the way out here only to get arrested by Pleasanton's finest!

The only thing I would change about the Pleasanton PD is to have the guys in the department shave off their mustaches. Far too many of them (particularly the ones on motorcycles) have facial hair that makes them look dorky. They'd look a lot cooler without the mustaches.

Moustaches look so cool. I love men in uniform with moustaches. They look tough.

I blame Obama for this drop in crime! His socialism is killing the crime business!
