Sector 1- West End
Sector 1 is led by Lieutenant Jill Ottaviano who believes "The men and women of the Alameda Police Department actively participate in Community Policing. Officers take great pride in building relationships with community and business members of Alameda to keep the community safe, involved, and reduce crime."
Sector 1 covers West Alameda, also known as the "West End," from Main Street to Westline Drive/Eighth Street/Mariner Square Drive. It comprises 48 reporting districts and five community policing beats. The West End encompasses a diverse community including neighborhoods, the Webster Street Business District, two of the three public high schools in Alameda- (Island and Encinal High Schools), and the future Alameda Landing development which will include anchor stores like Target, Michael's, and Safeway, and a Chase Bank.
