Community Information

Our officers strengthen the relationship between the Laguna Beach community and the Police Department. They provide a proactive and innovative approach to problem solving, personal safety, and crime prevention.

“Tourist-oriented and community policing is extremely important to our overall mission of providing equitable police services to everyone in Laguna Beach to make the community even more pleasurable to live, work, and visit”  said Chief Laura Farinella.

The Police Department accomplishes this through special events like our Bike Rodeo, and a variety of programs such as our Citizen's Police Academy
, Neighborhood and Business Watch, Dog Walker Watch, Coffee with a Cop, CERT, Police Explorer Program and various volunteer programs.
