What Is NCPC?

Saturday, November 9, 2013

A Neighborhood Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) is made up of you and your neighbors working together and in partnership with the Oakland Police Department (OPD) and other city agencies to address ongoing problems in your neighborhood.

NCPCs generally choose three priorities for the Oakland Police Department Problem Solving Officers (PSO). The Neighborhood Services Coordinator, PSOs, beat officer, and other city agencies work together and with the NCPC to develop and implement a strategy to address the priorities. OPD reports back to the NCPC about progress on the priorities until the problems are resolved or changed.

Throughout the city, NCPCs are organized on the basis of their areaÕs police beat. Rockridge is covered by beats 12Y and 13X. Residents in the beat area staff and run the group. All neighborhood residents are invited to attend its meetings.

Meetings of the Greater Rockridge NCPC (GRNCPC) are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Rockridge Branch Library, 5366 College Avenue.
