Tips for Home Security from APD

Keeping your home and family safe is important, whether you're at home or away. Installing a security camera system can help. There are different kinds of security cameras to choose from, including wired and wireless security cameras. Wired security cameras are hardwired to a power source, so you never have to worry about the batteries running low.

Home security cameras may be used for monitoring a baby, catching a burglar, deterring criminals, and, most importantly, giving you peace of mind. The activity you want to observe will help dictate the type of security cameras you may want to purchase.

As an agency, we cannot identify or endorse the best camera system to buy but can give you vendors to help you start the process of cameras in and around your home.

Walsh Road Siren Test

The Atherton Police Department, in conjunction with the Menlo Park Fire Protection District, will be activating the Walsh Road Emergency Siren on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 9:00 am. The test should last approximately 1 minute. 

This test is necessary to ensure the proper function of the Walsh Road Emergency Siren in case of an actual emergency.

During the test, if within range, you can expect to hear an extended "beep beep beep" tone. 


Demolition of Public Works Buildings

The Town has contracted with Central Valley Environmental (CVE) to begin demolishing the Public Works building and empty Building trailer behind the permit center, and removal of the generator starting on this Monday, January 28.

The entire process should take about three days. For questions or concerns contact Marty Hanneman or David Huynh
