Our Police Department is involved in public education - from distributing free gun-locks to finger-print kits for children. The local Fire Department provides first aid and CPR training for employees and citizens and educates students on fire safety. Both the Fire and Police Departments sponsor Citizen Academies that allow citizens to get a behind-the-scenes crash course on what it takes to protect the public.
Other public safety services - animal control, pest control, emergency services, risk management, etc. - are either provided by the Town, or are supplied by Contra Costa County.
