In light of the tragic event that took place at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, the Santa Clara Police Department wants to reassure our community that public safety is our utmost priority.
There are several large and small community events planned in Santa Clara over the coming months. All of these events have and will continue to go through a detailed threat assessment process to ensure adequate security measures are in place. As necessary, we draw upon local, state and federal law enforcement partners to provide a secure environment. In addition, our employees receive regular training on how to respond to dynamic events.
If You See Something, Say Something! We ask our community members to remain aware of their surroundings. Reporting suspicious activity, circumstances or individuals can prevent a crime, minimize victimization, save a life and improve the overall quality of life. Call 9-1-1 in an emergency, or (408)615-5580 for non-emergency situations.
