Sheriff’s Office to Increase Patrols in Lafayette and Orinda

Post Date:11/27/2019 2:51 PM

Contra Costa Sheriff David Livingston announced today that he has assigned additional Sheriff's Office patrol deputies to both the Lafayette and Orinda communities immediately. 

These Deputy Sheriffs will augment the Lafayette and Orinda Police Departments' regular patrols and will remain in those cities until further notice. These deputies will work both daytime and nighttime hours in fully marked patrol vehicles. Additional other security measures have also been stepped up and are on-going. 

"Anytime we see a rise in criminal activity, especially violent crime, we react immediately,” said Sheriff David Livingston. “The citizens of Orinda and Lafayette should know we are out in force - some measures will be highly visible like our additional patrol deputies and other measures will be more covert. Our goal remains unchanged, to keep Contra Costa families safe." 

The Sheriff’s Office provides law enforcement and public safety services to both Orinda and Lafayette through contracts.
