LPD Implements Body Worn Cameras
April 21, 2015  In November 2014, a proposal was submitted to, and approved by, the Livermore City Council for the purchase and implementation of the body worn cameras for every LPD Officer. Since the approval, LPD officials worked on the implementation process of the body worn cameras. In early April 2015, Taser International came to LPD and over a three day period trained all of the officers on the use of the body worn cameras. The implementation of the body worn cameras will allow LPD Officers to document incidents and interactions and obtain evidence during investigations. Additionally, the Department will be able to review the video footage to debrief critical incidents and use the camera footage as a training tool to keep officers well trained and prepared.

National Public Safety Telecommunications Week
April 13, 2015  National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week will be celebrated the week of April 12 - 19, 2015. The week honors those Telecommunicators that are the first link in the chain of emergency police, fire, and medical responses. If you have ever been the victim of a crime, involved in a collision, reported a fire or needed medical help, you have called 9-1-1 and were helped by a Telecommunicator, also known as a Public Safety Dispatcher. Agencies across the nation are honoring and thanking their 9-1-1 Dispatchers for their dedication and service to their communities. These public safety professionals are there for the public when needed most. They ensure that callers receive professional and timely assistance while quickly getting them the help they need. The appreciation week began in California in 1981, and quickly grew to national recognized event. In 1990, the United States Congress designated the second full week of each April as a time to remember the critical role that dispatchers play in keeping us and our communities safe.
