San Leandro
Case: 1608-1357

A sergeant and officers responded to the station regarding a male experiencing a mental health crisis. San Leandro Police officers responded as well, and reported seeing the male on the (aerial) trackway above Williams Street. Through the use of a San Leandro Fire Firefighters’ ladder, officers were able to safely detain the male on the trackway. Paramedics then transported the male to the county’s mental health facility as he was deemed unable to care for himself due to mental health issues. Train service was not affected as the last revenue train had traveled through the area prior to the incident.
