Sector Five

Sector 5- Alameda Point

Sector 5 is led by Lieutenant Don Owyang who believes "It is an honor to represent the men and women of the Alameda Police Department and to serve the Alameda Community."


Lieutenant Owyang is leading his team to develop lasting relationships and to collaborate with community partners to reduce crime and keep Alameda safe.


Sector 5 covers the former Naval Air Station which closed on April 25, 1997, and is now known as “Alameda Point.”   Alameda Point consists of property west of Main Street.  It comprises 10 reporting districts and one community policing beat.  Since 2000, the City of Alameda has been planning the redevelopment of Alameda Point.  The area is home to a variety of business, including the Rock Wall Wine Company, Hangar 1, and the Bladium Sports & Fitness Club.  It is also home to the Alameda Point Collaborative, the USS Hornet Museum, and the endangered California Least Tern. 


If your neighborhood is interested in organizing a neighborhood watch, you can contact the COPPS Unit at (510) 337-8305.  They can assist you with training a block captain (or captains), give you helpful tips on crime prevention through a CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) evaluation, provide you crime information/stats for your community, and get you on the schedule for National Night Out in August 2015.  A number of valuable resources can also be found on the Community Services/Assistance webpage.


Lieutenant Owyang is the Technical Services Division Commander.  His office hours are Monday through Thursday, from 6:30 am to 4:00 pm.  He can be reached at (510) 337-8319 or email:
