City of San Fernando



The City of San Fernando is located in the northeast corner of Los Angeles County's San Fernando Valley. Situated between three major freeways, San Fernando is surrounded by the City of Los Angeles. Because of its location, it is a microcosm of its larger neighbor. The City is 2.42 square miles. San Fernando was incorporated on August 31, 1911 and the San Fernando Police Department was established soon thereafter. The Department currently consists of 35 sworn officers and 25 civilian personnel.
