On the night of Wednesday, August 20, 2014, members of our SWAT team partnered with the Contra Costa Sheriff’s J-Team and conducted a proactive crime suppression detail in the Sycamore Drive corridor.

Officers conducted one probation search, 48 pedestrian stops, 105 traffic stops, and 13 suspicious vehicle stops during this operation! By the end of the night, 12 arrests were made for outstanding warrants, possession of controlled substances, possession of a firearm, and resisting arrest.

I could not be more proud of the tireless efforts and fantastic work by the officers, dispatchers, and support staff dedicated to serving the City of Antioch.

And finally, I am truly thankful for the continued support we receive from members of this great community!

Collectively, we are ALL making a difference!
