Area Command is an operational philosophy that is organized to address quality of life issues for residents and businesses, over a long-term basis. The objective is to provide a single point of contact for concerns including crime, traffic and other issues that may have an adverse impact on our stakeholders. The theory of the Area Command philosophy is that through more direct communication, accountability, professional responsibility, and strategic utilization of our limited resources, an Area Command philosophy will provide more enhanced community policing activities. The Area Command is not a replacement of our current patrol services or the community policing activities that occur on a day-to-day basis.
Reports of crimes and activity the police needs to be aware of and address and are occurring now or recently, should all be directed to our dispatch center. Emergencies should be reported to 9-1-1, and all other calls for service should be reported to our 24-hour dispatch number, (562) 594-7232.
