The Oakland Police Department is moving to a Neighborhood Policing Plan with the city divided into five areas, each commanded by a Captain. The Area Captains will be the principal crime fighters in the Department, each taking responsibility for crime in their respective areas and each being held accountable for designing and directing responses and strategies to counter crime conditions.
This tool helps you find what Police Area you are in and gives you the contact information for your Captain.

This application was originally created by Steve Spiker and OpenOakland to help residents find their police beats. The City of Oakland has adapted the project to show the new police areas. The code is originally based on an opensource project by Open City.
