SWAT teams from Pleasanton and Livermore merge

Original post made on Dec 1, 2011

It's one thing to go breaking in doors or serving a warrant on a high-risk suspect with a team of officers you know and trust guarding your back. It's another thing to do it with strangers, but that's what Pleasanton's SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) team has been doing with its counterpart from Livermore.

Amazing what perseverance and great people can do when they set their minds to it. Congratulations to both teams and the two cities for coming together and saving money while enhancing their capabilities!

This sounds like a great concept, just wondering why wasn't Dublin PD part of the East County Tactical Team merge?

Dublin contracts with the Alameda County Sheriffs Department and the Alameda County Fire Department for public safety at a significant discount in total cost compared to Livermore and Pleasanton. If you look at the unfunded pension liability (and healthcare liability) for Dublin Public Safety you won't find anything. If you look at the unfunded pension & healthcare liability for Livermore & Pleasanton you will see hundreds of millions in debt.
