Oakley Among California Cities to See Significant Decrease in Crime Rate


oakley logo2If you live in Oakley, you’ve likely experienced or heard of our superb Police Department’s on-going effort to preserve Oakley as a safe community to raise a family. Now, yet another independent review confirms what residents already knew.

Safe Choice Security reviewed data from 2007-2012 FBI Crime Reporting Statistics to identify the twenty California cities that have effectively decreased crime via advanced police programs, services and techniques. Ranked number 7 of the 20, Oakley has seen a significant decline in both violent and property crime. According to Safe Choice, in 2007 Oakley experienced a 29.18 crime rate, whereas in 2012 that rate had decreased by 47.01% to 15.46.

As the narrative explains, while Oakley’s growth could have resulted in a corresponding upward spike in crime, such was not the case in Oakley.

“We would like to thank our residents for helping to make this accomplishment possible. We’re appreciative of the many residents who pick up the phone to report suspicious activity. Oakley’s educated and engaged community is an invaluable partner in crime prevention,” stated Police Chief Dan Gomez.
