Why do I feel like the answer of the PD constitutes answers that don't explain. So Pleasanton is a member of a county that really just doesn't have time for them as their priority if their crime and gang infested Oakland area. Maybe it's time for some discussion as to which county Pleasanton should really belong to!

One thing you can say about murder and suicide: they nearly ALways lead to death.
