Sorry, I meant a news crew, not police at Charleston crossing. I was only there briefly.

Maybe they were covering the activity mentioned in the other current Caltrain thread?

They were probably following up on the news release from Caltrains that they plan to redesign all major crossings in Sunnyvale, Mountain View and Palo Alto.

Among the safety features are modified railroad crossing gates and new guardrails, fences, pedestrian and emergency swing gates, sidewalks, crossing panels, and warning tactile panels to assist visually impaired persons.

One lane in each direction will be closed during construction and the sidewalk will be closed on one side of the street.

Work will start next Wednesday and is expected to last about 3 months.
