Santa Barbara's New Police Station Logo

Neighborhood
Benefits

Our Santa Barbara officers have a lot of community interaction throughout everyday activities and try to encourage interaction by routinely walking to court, lunch, response calls, and for neighborhood visits. Wherever the new police station is located, an added safety benefit will include increased officer presence on neighborhood streets, checking in with local businesses, and seeing what is happening at local parks.  There are also positive economic impacts when staff and officers patronize businesses near the station.

As part of the new police station, officers are interested in hosting Neighborhood Watch meetings, community action and safety advisory meetings as part of neighborhood improvement task forces, Citizen Academies, and expanding relationships with the Humane Society, Boys & Girls Clubs, and Special Olympics.
