When Crime Occurs

Report a crime

If you see a crime in progress, call the police!

Only call 911 from a land line!  From a cell phone call 510-777-3211 which routes directly to OPD dispatch.  To report a crime that has already happened, call the non-emergency number 510-777-3333, or fill in OPD's Online Crime Reporting form.  You'll find the link on their Report a Crime page.

For MEDICAL OR FIRE EMERGENCIES ONLY, you can call the Fire Department directly at 510-444-1616.  They may respond faster than OPD.

Ready for Emergencies?

Are you prepared for emergencies?  Do you know what Oakland and Alameda County provide for both dealing with emergencies and responding to emergencies?  Check out our reference page on Emergency Preparedness and see what your options are.

The monthly crime statistics for beats 12Y and 13X, covering January 2023 (revised 3/5/23) is now available on, under Resources > Crime Stats and Maps > Rockridge Crime Trends 2023-2024.   Here is the direct link to the pages:  


Here is a direct link to the revised January report: 

Crime Stats January 2023 (revised):

I've been compiling and producing crime statistics from the city of Oakland's data feed for over 10 years.  But the revised January 2023 report I just published may be the last, unless Oakland's IT department passes a miracle.  You may have read of the ransomware attack on Oakland's data systems on February 8.  When I pulled the 90-day list of reported crimes in Oakland from the city data feed on March 3, there was nothing in it after February 7, for any beat anywhere in the city.  And I don't know when there will ever be more in it.

The sad thing is that the January revision indicated that the data delays we've seen since mid-2021 seem to be improving - between the 2 beats, 12Y and 13X, the revised report only had 9 crime reports that weren't in the original January report pulled on February 5, and the general pattern was very similar to what we've seen - a few crimes against the person, but mostly property crimes, the vast majority auto-related.

I tried to produce a report for February 2023 but there was nothing to work with.  There were no reports for beat 13X at all, and only 16 reports for beat 12Y, with nothing after February 6.  The general pattern of the 16 reports matched usual activity, as I said about the revised January report.  But as far as I can tell now, the data is Gone.  I will keep trying, but I have very little hope.
