  1. Why do we not have officers on E bikes patrolling this area.? Those of us on bikes see this shit go down all the time in this area…They could nail it down if they had the stealth, speed, mobility E bikes offer…yeah..it’s always ‘budget constraints’….crime increase expenses…right?

    • the “constraint” is that neither California legislature nor the neighborhood think preventing crime is a priority. Clearing out the jails, preventing stereotypes and helping the homeless are what Emeryville wants to be known for. A “progressive”agenda of metered parking spots and a $50m development project and a yoga studio at the EPD were all that city council could pull together over the last 2 years. Oh yeah and firing the person that was reporting crime.
