The Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff will be providing patrol assistance to the Walnut Creek Police Department this holiday season. This comes in response to a recent spate of organized retail thefts in the Bay Area, including one in the Broadway Plaza shopping mall in Walnut Creek.
A special detail of Contra Costa deputy sheriffs will be conducting high-visibility patrols in downtown Walnut Creek alongside police officers to help prevent similar incidents from occurring and to provide additional security for the area.
“I made a personal commitment to the City of Walnut Creek to staff downtown Walnut Creek with deputy sheriffs during the holidays,” said Contra Costa Sheriff David Livingston. “Working with our partners at the Walnut Creek Police Department, this deployment from the Sheriff’s Office will help keep businesses, shoppers and residents safe.”
The Sheriff’s Office wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season. Please always be alert wherever you are and that if you see suspicious activity to notify your local law enforcement agency.
