many are wondering what's being done to crack down on the problems. i spoke with the police chief about his plans to address crime in 2022. in less than two weeks. a new plan is set to take shape within the oakland police department targeting a section of the city dealing with crime more than any other. we know that east oakland has seen the vast majority of our violent crime. including shootings and homicides. it also represents the largest percentage of calls for service , so it's really important that we balance our resources based on where we're seeing crime occurrence, chief laurent armstrong says 48 officers will be shifted into that section of the city starting january, 25th. it will be. in addition to the 96 officers currently assigned to that area. it's an area where more than half of 2021 134 homicides took place. a troubling trend of the chief is hoping will finally be brought under control. cooper and gang violence has been the largest percentage of our violence and
so we want to use our ceasefire strategy to be able to address that violence outside of east oakland, though there is one particular crime that affects many residents, car break ins. the chief says it's an area of focus, highlighting the department's ability to use bait cars to catch unsuspecting thieves and technology that can alert officers to one of vehicle is burglarized and tell them who's responsible. he also says those arrested for violent crimes are of particular focus because we know that they're involved in violence but also involved in those crimes related to auto burglaries. we often judge the police based on their visibility in the community, whether we see them on the streets, but armstrong tells me work has been underway that you can't see. especially through the violent crime operations center, a division he formed as one of his first acts after becoming chief, and they have been responsible for making over 60 homicide arrests. they also have made 200 arrests of violent crime suspects. they also wore a part of our recovery of over 2 1200 firearms in 2021, another
area of focus attacks on members of the asian community, particularly in chinatown. incidents he says, are taking place with far less frequency. he counts the drop by the way. among his successes. chinatown is safer than it was. we are anticipating a lunar new year. that will be at think one in which people will feel safe in chinatown because we will have a presence there. so there are 687 police officers currently on the force, but the department is authorized to have 731 now. currently 35 recruits are undergoing training with the hope of joining the force in the future. i didn't see the blame. mild day again here in the bay area with our highs. banking between 58 degrees at sfo to 68 degrees and gilroy, well above average. taking a look outside. right now it's our live weather camera there now towards the seaport. other ports of oakland . you can't tell, but we do have

our ridge of high pressure, taking all the rain to the north. so how will it affect us ? well, bottom line is that area of low pressure, the frontal boundary will produce more clouds into our area tomorrow so we can call it partly to mostly cloudy. but the rain just flirts just with the northwestern quadrant of the state of california. we will have some minor cooling as a result of that cloud cover tonight overnight with a layer of clouds. temperatures in the forties pretty much mid forties around the central bay 44 degrees from hayward through castro valley into san leandro and san lorenzo. otherwise tomorrow's temperatures gradually coming down from that 66 degrees experienced in san jose to 63 degrees. 60 and oakland mid fifties and san francisco low sixties tribe valley extended forecast has called for a little bit more sunshine but breezy conditions as high pressure rebuilds on friday. full sunshine saturday and sunday and for the holiday martin luther king day on monday
