  1. Gee SJ has a lot of crime due to no cops, I see no reason for these posts. SJPD has a daily crime report with about 30 posts a day and you pick 4. Why not mention the double murders and real crime. Joke!

    “Officers working gang suppression conducted high visibility patrols in known gang hot spots that resulted in arrest for possession of drugs. In addition, officers conducted a probation search and multiple field interviews.”

    Is this supposed to make us feel safe? When SJ had a VCET Unit this was done on a daily basis and ARRESTS were made.
