The level of customer service from each person I've, unfortunately, had the pleasure of interacting with supercedes the 5 star rating. They do what they say and say what they do.

Otis Taylor of the SF Chronicle has done another attack column on the Office of the Sheriff. What he writes is unfounded, baseless, and a personal attack on the Office. Please see our response on our Facebook page.

Column in the San Francisco Chronicle

Once again, columnist Otis Taylor of the SF Chronicle has done an attack piece on the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff. It is posted online and will be in print tomorrow.

In all, he has written at least seven columns attacking the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office in the past few months. This is mainly over allegations some female ICE detainees have made.

Each time, we have remained professional and cordial, responding when we could. Our department does not mind criticism; we ask to be treated fairly and objectively. This column is no where near that standard.

This latest column is a new low. Not only is it one-sided, unbalanced, and sorely lacking in details that were provided to him by the Sheriff's Office, it is speculative and attacks Sheriff David Livingston and the Sheriff's Office. The headline says, "Contra Costa Sheriff stonewalls officials who want to tour troubled jail." FACT: At least 20 elected officials and organizations have toured West County Detention Facility since allegations were brought to our attention by some ICE detainees. Also a comprehensive investigation was launched. Mr. Taylor writes about the "lack of transparency." Yet, 20 outside agencies and elected officials have visited the detention facility. More visits are in the works. Someone please tell us how we can more transparent than that. Also while clearance to the jail was revoked for one group because of violations, 20 advocacy groups continue to have access to the detention facility to serve the inmates and detainees.

To our Facebook followers, thank you for your understanding of our frustration and for taking the time to read this.

Here is the response we provided to Mr. Taylor ahead of his deadline.


Since certain allegations from ICE detainees at the West County Detention Facility were brought to our attention in October, we have provided the opportunity for tours for various elected officials and groups. Accordingly, our Office also launched a comprehensive investigation into their claims. Since October, we have provided the following tours:

Congressman Michael Thompson
Senator Steve Glazer
Senator Nancy Skinner
Assemblymen Jim Frazier
Senator Kamala Harris (staff)
Senator Diane Feinstein (staff)
Congressman Mark DeSaulnier
Consulate General of Mexico
Consulate General of Guatemala
Board of State and Community Corrections (inspection)
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (inspection)
Nakamoto Group Inspection (Immigration Related)
Attorney General’s Office
Senate Appropriations Committee
Contra Costa Civil Grand Jury
Contra Costa County Supervisor Diane Burgis
Prison Law Office
Leadership Council of Contra Costa
Immigrant's Rights Group - Immigrant Reform Group
East Bay Interfaith Immigration Coalition

In addition, there are scheduled tours in June by ICE - Office of Detention Oversight and ICE Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. Also second tours by Senator Kamala Harris and the Attorney General's Office have been requested.

Our priority is continuing to accommodate organizations, including higher-level elected officials and their staff at this time. We will respond to Richmond Mayor Tom Butt’s request as time permits.

Regarding Assemblymember David Chiu's letter, we will need to research that, but to say "radio silence," is misleading and unfair. Currently there are over 20 different advocacy groups that continue to have regular access to inmates and detainees - their work inside WCDF providing support and resources has not been affected.

112th Anniversary of the SF Earthquake

Today marks the 112th anniversary of the earthquake that struck Northern California in 1906. The exact time was 5:12 AM. The earthquake, measuring 7.9, destroyed most of San Francisco. Over 3,000 people were killed.

This anniversary of the earthquake is a reminder for all of us to be prepared.

Here is some information from the California Office of Emergency Services on earthquake preparedness:


Here is a report from the USGS on what could happen during a major earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area:

PHONE SCAM - Suspect Impersonates Sheriff's Office Employees

The Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff last week took a report from an East County resident who became a victim of this scam.

Here is generally how the scam works. Residents receive a phone call from a person who identifies himself as an employee of the Sheriff's Office. The caller tells the residents that there are warrants for their arrest because they missed jury duty. The caller directed the residents to pay money clear the warrants.

This scam is not new. There are different variations of this. Recent scams involved the IRS or unpaid parking tickets. This pops up every now and then and usually targets the elderly.

The suspect attempts to make this appear legitimate by giving phony names or real names of employees, addresses of some of our offices, and fake case or warrant numbers. Don't fall for it.

Usually the suspect goes on to say the warrant could be cleared by getting a prepaid debit card or gift card at various local stores.

THIS IS A SCAM. The Office of the Sheriff does not have people pay fines or fees by through reloadable prepaid cards. Furthermore, the public is never contacted in this way.

Anyone receiving such a call should refuse to provide any personal information to the caller or simply hang up. Please contact your local law enforcement agency and notify them of the incident.

Thank you for sharing this post with others.
