Town Of Moraga

Public Safety Alert

The Town of Moraga, like neighboring cities, is experiencing an increase in residential burglaries. Since January 1, five burglaries have been reported, with four of them occurring in the daytime and accomplished by forced entry. During the same time frame in 2013, only one occurred and it was via an open garage door. The 2013 residential burglaries increased 34% from 2012, so everyone should be aware and looking out for each other. The Moraga Police Department (MPD) is asking everyone to please call 925-284-5010 to report any suspicious person(s) either walking or parked in your neighborhood and to be vigilant in reporting anything suspicious, seen or heard. Please keep all doors and windows locked and use alarm systems if available; communicate regularly with your neighbors to learn their routine and pick up mail and newspapers if necessary; and utilize MPD’s Vacation House Watch service. If you are interested in a home security audit or in hosting a Neighborhood Watch meeting, please call MPD at 925-888-7055 ext. 0. Burglars will generally avoid neighborhoods that are organized and actively participating in reporting suspicious activity. Public safety is everyone’s responsibility and we all need to be aware that Moraga is currently an attractive burglary target that requires immediate public response.
