ONN – Oakland Police Officers Prevent A Suicide Attempt From Building – vlog by Zennie62 YouTube


On February 15, 2021, at about 5:19 PM, a person called the Oakland Police Department (OPD) Communication Division to report a person sitting on the ledge of a 10-story parking garage rocking back and forth. Upon arrival, officers found an individual with half their body hanging over the ledge of the structure in 200 block of 23rd Street.

Thankfully, one of the responding officers is a member of OPD’s Tactical Negotiations Team (TNT) and Crisis Intervention Trained (CIT). The officers quickly made their way to the visibly distressed individual. The person told the officers they felt like they had to jump off the building. At times the person would sway their body as if they were going to fall from the ledge. However, after patiently talking to the individual for an hour, the officers convinced the person to return to safety. The individual then hugged the officer.

Chief LeRonne L. Armstrong says, “The opportunity to take life-saving actions is the most significant call for our responding officers. We are trained for those moments and the exceptional actions of these officers show the Department’s commitment to the preservation of life, that is our most important mission.”

All interactions by a member of the Oakland Police Department is an opportunity to build trust and legitimacy with our community. We thank our officers for their courageous efforts to save the life of a community member.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
