ABOUT WEST COVINA POLICE DEPARTMENT

Patrol-Home-2

PATROL

About two-thirds of all sworn officers work in this division, which focuses on patrolling city streets, answering calls for service, and identifying potential crime problems. Under the Community Service Area Policing program, four dedicated lieutenants and their crews are assigned a specific quadrant of the City and tasked with resolving public safety concerns for residents, neighborhoods, and businesses.  This division includes the Traffic Unit, the K-9 Unit, Jail Operations, Reserve Officers, Police Cadets and Volunteers who perform non-hazardous duties to free up sworn officers.

Recent News

Some of our officers being trained on the new "The WRAP" restraint. This restraint allows officers to achieve fast de-escalation to protect individuals, officers, and even medical staff. The restrained individuals are placed in an upright position which assists with comfort, breathing, the ability to receive medical attention, as well as easier and safe transportation.

Today and this week, our officers have attended training created by Long Beach Sergeant Jason Lehman, Retired Long Beach Detective Armando Yearwood and their team. Their organization "Why'd You Stop Me?" (WYSM) is focused on creating transparency and better understanding between officers and the community by various means, including de-escalation techniques. The organization has conducted multiple trainings at various police agencies, as well as within the communities they serve.
