It's time for a new Police Chief in Danville! A great police department starts at the top. This chief has practically no street experience and I doubt he's ever made a felony arrest. Morale is so low It's pathetic. I've talked to several officers and it's the chief's lack of experience and leadership which translates to low or no motivation. Most say he's more interested in doing his little TV show than preventing crime. Please bring in a leader who leads by example.

More is needed than just a new Chief. It's long past time for Danville to join San Ramon and establish its own police force separate from the County Sheriff. It is the only way to get law enforcement that comports with the needs and wishes of the residents of Danville. I am just waiting for the lawsuits to be filed against The Town of Danville by the families of the two men shot to death by Danville PD officer Andrew Hall.

Now there's this:

Two suspects arrested for theft of over $15,000 in merchandise from five Bay Area Home Depots in one week
December 9, 2021 |

Two suspects were arrested Wednesday morning in connection with the theft of over $15,000 in power tools and other merchandise from five Bay Area Home Depot stores in the last week, a public information officer with the San Ramon Police Department said.

Police received the call from managers of the Home Depot on Crow Canyon Road in San Ramon just after 7 a.m. on Wednesday morning. According to the police spokesperson, employees were already familiar with the pair of suspects.

“They had stolen from enough Home Depots in the Bay Area that they were circulating flyers in the stores,” the officer said. “One of the employees recognized them as repeat offenders.”

Employees monitored the suspects inside while police set up a perimeter in the parking lot. Upon taking the suspects into custody and searching their vehicle, police discovered the pair had stolen an additional $3,000 worth of merchandise from a Brentwood Home Depot the day before.

A 29-year-old suspect from Concord is on parole for “weapons and stolen property-related charges,” while another 30-year-old suspect from Pittsburg is “on felony probation for possession of stolen property,” according to a statement from the San Ramon Police Department.

A search of the suspects’ vehicle revealed narcotics, USPS mailbox keys, stolen mail, fraudulent credit cards and other tools police believe to be stolen, according to the statement. Police also found recent receipts from Home Depot stores in Martinez, Antioch and Pittsburg with transactions placed from the fraudulent credit cards, the spokesperson said.

Hey Kersey, why don’t you praise the work of your local law enforcement department instead of knocking them? BTW, morale is low because people like you would rather pick it apart instead of praising badge staff for doing their job.

I worked with Chief Shields before he became Chief for the town of Danville. I always found him to be very motivated toward solving crime, working with the public and creative.
