Oakland Police Districts map, distributed 3/18/13As of April, 2013, these are the current Oakland Police Department Districts, which were realigned to encourage Community Policing under Chief Howard Jordan at the advice of consultant Bob Wasserman.

The districts are available in GIS form here, overlaid with police beats. Question: can we import this please? 

On June 7th, 2013 the City Administrator released a memo saying that the 5 districts would go live on Saturday, June 8th.

The announcement reads:

OPD’s Five Districts Go Live Saturday – On Saturday, June 8, the Oakland Police Department (OPD) will implement the final stage of its Neighborhood Policing Plan, putting into place leadership and teams for each of five Police Districts that together encompass the entire City. 

Districts 4 and 5, in operation since March, cover East Oakland. Districts 1, 2 and 3, hinging on Lake Merritt, cover West Oakland, North Oakland and Central Oakland. District commanders will deploy crime reduction and prevention strategies tailored for the areas they command in order to provide as much focused, problem-oriented and community-driven police service delivery as possible. There will be no change to the number of patrol or problem solving officers assigned to beats or Neighborhood Crime Prevention Councils. The five district commanders listed below have the authority needed to impact local community crime trends, issues and patterns. At the same time, each commander will be held accountable for effective police service and the quality of police/community relationships in his District. Most importantly, the five commanders will be able to focus on specific issues of concern to neighborhoods in their districts:
