Police are responding to residents who are upset regarding the lack of notification from surrounding the last week.
Jose Luis Franco, 57, was returning from court Monday afternoon when he "somehow was able to breach the wall of the jail," said Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Press Information Officer Sergeant J.D. Nelson.
The notified parents of the situation and Nelson handled media inquiries.
According to police Chief Tom McCarthy, the situation has prompted changes in communication with residents.
Dublin Police Chief Tom McCarthy has issued the following statement:
"The City of Dublin takes the safety of the community very seriously and would like to reassure the community that we are reviewing and revising our protocols concerning the distribution of emergency information.
While the use of local media resulted in reaching a wide audience of local residents, I will be working with the City Manager to make changes to our communication procedures moving forward and we will work more closely with all public safety agencies and with our local schools to ensure the timely distribution of information to all residents."
