@ Becky... yes you are right. It's unfortunate that others don't feel the same. (James Buckley) We need more people like you and myself who actually care about our community and instead of looking down on it, lift it up. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!

Wow, the LPD have surely been busy and looks like they're doing a great job! I was just thinking the other day...it'd be nice to get through a morning without hearing sirens..Just sayin....It is the holidays after all, it could be worse and am hopeful that all the activity calms down for the New Year... Livermore is and will always be a great place to live! Happy 2013!

Thank goodness people are watching and calling LPD. Drug deals, stolen cars and stolen property right across from Livermore High? Maybe Palasage HOA need to rethink the security service homeowners have to pay for. Driving around at 10PM with lights blinking and not even getting out of the car isn't cutting it I suppose.

Arming everyone would be the worst possible thing you can do.

The Livermore Police do a terrific job. However, they need to focus more on Community Orientated Policing, not just crime solving. I rarely see them, and when I do, it's normally just one patrol car every once in a while or they're responding to a call or pulling someone over. They need to have a more proactive presence in the community, and then criminals would think twice about being so brash.
