Within the Public Safety division, our goal is to prevent crime, increase safety and reduce fear through community outreach, education and cooperation between residents, business owners, visitors, City staff and emergency personnel.
The Public Safety division offers a variety of programs overseen by crime prevention specialists, such as Neighborhood Watch, Partners Against Crime, Business Watch and Adopt-A-Wall graffiti abatement.
The Public Safety division staffs City parks and Palmdale Transportation Center with public safety officers, who act as a visible deterrent to crime and are also available to answer your questions and concerns. Community service officers work directly with the Sheriff's department to take certain reports, such as burglary, vehicle break-in and other property crimes, which allow deputies more time to respond to higher priority calls for service.
By working with community members and law enforcement, the Public Safety staff strives to create, support, foster and maintain a safe community.
