In answer to Stevens question, which is still relevant - Orinda home burglaries do remain a problem. As mentioned by other posters they are predominately, but not limited to, the exit streets from Highway 24 to the north and south. An example would be St. Stephens exit or the Charles Hill area. The Orinda police have decided to take things a little more seriously as of late and call in the CC Sheriffs department for some back-up. In our opinion, with some simple and obvious precautions, (burglar alarm, always locking doors and cars, etc) we should be able to minimize the risk of being a target. Orinda is a wonderful place to live and we enjoy the benefits that the large metropolitan areas around us provide.. but unfortunately, they also bring some crime with it.
