After three months patrolling the streets of Oakland, the Alameda County Sheriff will pull out of Oakland. The California Highway Patrol will be help filling the gaps. Jodi Hernandez reports.

The California Highway Patrol has renewed a deal to help Oakland's undermanned police force by patrolling the city's streets.
 
The Oakland Tribune says the tentative agreement reached Monday calls for the CHP to increase its patrols to four days a week. Previously CHP officers were in the city two days a week.

   The newspaper says the added policing would offset the loss of the weekend patrols performed by the Alameda County Sheriff's Office. Those patrols ended Saturday when the sheriff and city officials couldn't come to terms on an extension.
 
The CHP agreed last November to provide officers to help police some of Oakland's most dangerous city streets.
 
 City officials didn't disclose the cost or length of the CHP extension.
 
 The City Council will vote on it May 7.
