I have enjoyed working in Livermore and am eager to build on the great successes already achieved. The men and women of the Livermore Police Department are dedicated professionals, and I am honored to work with them.” Chief Young has a passion for community policing, transparency in law enforcement, and is committed to prioritizing diversity on the Livermore Police force.

Chief Harris - Message to Our Community

Like so many of you, we were shocked and saddened after watching the video of the officer from the Minneapolis Police Department kneeling on the neck of George Floyd during an arrest that ended in his death.

We want our community to know that the actions taken by the officers on that video were wrong, this is not how we train or what we expect from our officers and in fact goes against what wearing the badge represents.

The Livermore Police Department sends our condolences to the Floyd family and to all who have been impacted by this tragedy and we remain committed to service with honor and protection with purpose.

Don’t Get Super Busted on Super Bowl Sunday

The Livermore Police Department is encouraging all football fans to celebrate Super Bowl LIII responsibly by not driving impaired, or letting other fans get behind the wheel when they shouldn’t.

In an effort to flag those who choose to drive impaired, the Livermore Police Department will increase patrols Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 3), adding additional officers to look for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

The Livermore Police Department also reminds drivers that "DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze." If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

Celebrate Safely!
