I posted a sign years ago about crime in park strip the cops came to my house within minutes. Down at the almond park end. We need everyone to contact the city manager this is the only way to get things done. I know it works.

Yep! Same here! 140 lbs? Oh Puhleeese. That's about what a skinny PIG weighs. I can't W8! Just me and my can of WhoopA! Bring it!! On a serious note, it probably would be a smart idea to enter th LPD # into your cells 925-371-4900, because we all know 911 calls go to CHP somewhere in Vallejo.

I grew up in Livermore, but live in San Diego now. It's mostly hispanic here, yet San Diego has a very low crime rate. What's happened to Livermore?
