Police Observation Data
Another crime-prevention project has been the purchase of another Police Observation Device (POD) that the Police Department will install at a busy intersection on the boulevard. PODs, which the Sac PD has installed at various locations throughout the city, have cameras that record what happens in the intersection, as well as a license plate reader device that sends the license plate numbers of passing vehicles to a database that police can search by time, date and location. Police can thus detect criminal activity and track down any vehicles involved. The Sac PD installed a City-purchased POD a year ago at the intersection of Stockton Blvd. and Fruitridge Road. Earlier this year, SBP paid for another POD, which was placed at Stockton and 47 th Avenue. SBP Board of Directors has approved the funds for the purchase of a second P.O.D. which will be installed where the Police Department deems it most useful early 2018. The three P.O.D’s on our corridor will aide the SBP in the area of focus on safety and security.

Committee meets once a month on the first Thursday of every month at 12:00 noon with local law enforcement agencies; the Sacramento City Police, Sacramento County Sheriff, California Highway Patrol, Sacramento County Prosecutor, Sacramento County Code Enforcement, and UC Davis Police.

For more than ten years, Patrol Officers from Paladin Private Security have been providing patrol services for the Stockton Blvd. Partnership with a focus on mitigating so-called “nuisance crimes” to aid in freeing law enforcement resources for more sinister crimes in our neighborhood. The program has grown substantially over the years. Initially, the service provided 40 weekly patrol hours. Today, Paladin officers are touring our community for over 160 hours per week. To date, Paladin officer have responded to over 3000 calls for service by local merchants and patrons. This is 3000 calls that would have otherwise removed our valuable Police and Sheriff resources from their enforcement activities.
Your patrol officers are available between 9 am and 9 pm daily to answer calls regarding suspicious persons, trespassers or other conditions which may impede your business or customers. Officers Duncan, Morris and Harmon are committed to working in partnership with you and encourage you to call upon their services.
Paladin dispatch can be reached at any time at 916-331-3175. When you call, please be ready to provide your name, call-back number, address, business name, a description of the event you are calling about, and a description of any person(s). This information is important to assist officers in quickly responding to and addressing your concerns.

SBP Supports Sacramento Police Department Bike Patrol
The Stockton Boulevard Partnership, the Property and Business Improvement District (PBID) along the Stockton Blvd commercial corridor, is collaborating with the City of Sacramento Police Department by sponsoring two additional police bicycles units for patrol along the corridor.
The Stockton Blvd Partnership values the opportunity to support the police and our community with these additional resources, made possible by local, engaged, property and business owners headed by Chairman Frank Louie and Terrence Johnson, Executive Director.
Sacramento Police will have the ability to deploy two officers, on bikes, throughout the Stockton Boulevard Corridor, for a distance of approximately six square miles. This coverage will include all properties and businesses between 2700 Stockton Boulevard at 2nd Avenue on the north end, to 6800 Stockton Boulevard at the south end.
SPD embraces the vision of “Making Sacramento the Safest Big City in California.” As a part of the vision, partnerships within our community are critical to crime reduction efforts and we rely on these partnerships to make Sacramento a desirable destination to live, work, and play. The Stockton Blvd Partnership is investing in the Boulevard with a share vision of Safety on Stockton.
Community Against Sexual Harm
The Stockton Blvd Partnership provided the seed money for C.A.S.H. and continues to support the project financially and with in-kind contributions. The C.A.S.H project was initiated in 2002 and came to fruition in 2007. The mission of the C.A.S.H. Program is to improve the lives of individuals victimized by, or at risk for sexual exploitation, violence, and prostitution by increasing their access to health and mental health education and services. C.A.S.H. accomplishes its mission by providing street-level outreach, trauma recovery services and assistance with referrals for substance abuse treatment, food banks, housing assistance, vocational training, and other basic services.
Our business corridor benefits from the C.A.S.H. program by having the prostitution activity eradicated from the area leaving the corridor feeling safe, clean and comfortable to employees, existing and potential customers.
