MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
Welcome to the San Fernando Police Department's
web pages. I hope you find the information they contain useful
and that they answer all your questions regarding our department
and the services we offer.
In San Fernando, we have a long history of providing a high
level of police services to the members of our community. Our
philosophy is simple; when someone calls our department for help
we solve their problem or put the caller in contact with someone
who can. A member of our department will answer every call for
service, whether that caller is complaining about a barking dog,
an abandoned vehicle, or a crying baby.
I have always believed that if residents and visitors feel and
are safe from violence and crime, a community will thrive. The
same is true for the smallest town and the largest city. Police
Departments are most effective when they work in partnership
with residents, business, schools, religious organizations, neighborhoods,
and other governmental services. In San Fernando, we fully embrace
the philosophy of Community Oriented Policing, in which the local
police and the community work together to solve problems regarding
crime, fear of crime, and neighborhood decay.
The San Fernando Police Department recognizes and values the
diverse and unique contributions made by every member of our
community. We take pride in the reports that we receive from
our community about the high level of satisfaction they have
with the services we provide. It is my sincere belief that working
together as a community, we can make a difference in our city,
neighborhoods, and schools. Together, we can continue to keep
San Fernando a wonderful and safe place to live, work, and visit.
Anthony P. Alba
Chief of Police
