The Patrol Division is the backbone of the Huntington Park Police Department. The uniformed patrol officer today is a high energy, multi-task, high-tech problem solver. The patrol officer is a professional who is trained to handle dangerous situations he/she may encounter on the streets.
The mission of the department’s Special Emergency Response Team (S.E.R.T.) is to provide an immediate response to specialized emergency situations involving law enforcement public safety incidents, which require personnel, coordination, equipment and training beyond the scope of regular patrol forces.
The mission of the Huntington Park Police Department Traffic Division is to enforce traffic laws and improve traffic safety throughout the City.
The Huntington Park Police Communications Center is the primary answering point for all 9-1-1 emergency calls and is responsible for the dispatching of police services.
The Huntington Park Police Department operates its own City Jail. This 22 bed facility is a Type 1 Jail and houses both misdemeanor and felony unsentenced prisoners prior to their arraignment and transfer to the custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s main jail.
