The Oakland Police Department reports a spike in homicides for the month of July. We ask our community members and city partners to help us find those responsible for these violent crimes.

Austin, Chicago, Charlotte, and San Antonio are just a few of the nation’s major cities that are experiencing a spike in homicides. The city of Oakland is also dealing with the same issue. The Oakland Police Department reports for the month of July, 11 people lost their lives to violence in Oakland, in comparison seven people were killed in July of the previous year.

The Wall Street Journal wrote an article titled, “Homicide Spike Hits Most Large U.S. Cities.”

The Oakland Police Department is committed to the service and safety of our community. Key arrests have been made and OPD’s Ceasefire Team, the independent Department of Violence Prevention, and Community Partners continue to work towards reducing gun violence and improving public safety.

The Department continues to see a sustained level of inner group and renewed conflicts with gangs and groups, generating gunfire not only at each other but also shootings at homes and cars.

We continue to ask our community to partner with the Department and the City to reduce violence by helping to provide information: “If you know something, say something.”
