New officer joins Pleasanton police; dispatcher promoted

Pleasanton police officer, sergeant first father-son to serve concurrently

Pleasanton police gained a new officer recently, but he isn't a stranger to the department.

Kyle Leonardo, son of Pleasanton Sgt. Joe Leonardo, was sworn in April 6 by his father.

The two are the first father-son pair to serve at Pleasanton Police Department concurrently, the department stated.

Pleasanton dispatcher Maia Freiburg was also promoted to dispatch supervisor earlier this month.

Kyle Leonardo, a Tracy native, graduated from the South Bay Regional Police Academy in San Jose and will complete a 16-week field training process before being assigned as a patrol officer.

Freiburg was hired by the Pleasanton Police Department in 2005 after she worked for the Fortuna and Eureka police departments. She has served as a communications training officer and as part of the department's Strategic Planning Committee.

A Danville native, Freiburg graduated from the Pleasanton police Leadership Track Program and is the president of a non-profit that recognizes Alameda County public safety dispatchers.
