O.C. PDs - COMMON GROUNDS
In 1887, silver was discovered in the Santa Ana Mountains, attracting settlers. This sudden growth in population spurred the California legislature to divide up Los Angeles County and create Orange County as a separate political entity in1889.
The county is generally said to have been named for the citrus fruit, but there was also already a town named Orange here, so the county may have been named for this city. Today the county covers a total area of 948 sq miles, making it the smallest, but some say the wealthiest county, in Southern California.
On this page, you will find information for the Orange County Police Departments and the communities they serve. Orange County has many police departments. Some cities run their own independent department while others contract with another city or with the County Sheriff's Department for police and protection services. Each department listed below features a link to additional information.
The success of the police departments in Orange County rests on their ability to provide good information and services to their citizens. Orange County police do this by working in cooperation with other local, state, federal law enforcement and community agencies as well as many types of citizen groups.
Most of the police departments structure their law enforcement on the Community Policing model. This simply means that patrol officers, investigators and traffic officers are assigned to the same geographic area for a specified time period to give these personnel the opportunity to become more familiar with the people that live and work in their area; it's built on the notion of the "old-fashion" beat where people know people.
A special emphasis is placed on the “Quality of Life” issues that affect each of these communities, like traffic, noise and vandalisms. Working on, understanding and being accountable for area-specific needs helps strengthen OC Police Department “partnerships” with their communities.
The Orange County Police Departments incorporate several values in their law enforcement work, too. Some of these, like courage, duty and commitment are fairly obvious. But emphasis is also placed on organizational growth and values, teamwork and community service.
Most OC Departments also have several divisions within their ranks. These include, but are not limited to, K-9 Units, Animal Control Services, 9-1-1 Dispatch/Communications, Crime Prevention, SWAT Teams, Bicycle Units, Traffic, Records, Administrative and Patrol.
