Community Partnership Program
The Community Partnership Program, a form of community-oriented policing and problem solving (COPPS), reflects a cooperative approach between the members of the community and the Police Department. The program addresses causes of crime and other disturbances by increasing communication and developing innovative ways to resolve long-term or chronic issues.
Four Geographical Areas
The program divides the city into four geographical areas
and assigns one Senior Police Officer (SPO) to each area
. SPOs assist community members in resolving long-term or chronic issues that currently affect, or issues that may develop within, their specific area of the city including:
- Animal issues (leash law violations)
- Drug-related issues
- Neighborhood Watch programs
- Ongoing noise disturbances
For emergencies, please call 9-1-1.
Submitting a Report
If you wish to report anything to the senior police officer in charge of your geographic area, please submit a completed Community Partnership Program Report Form
to the Police Department by email (address is included in form), in person, or by mail to:
Grover Beach Police Department
Attn: Community Partnership Program
711 Rockaway Avenue
Grover Beach, CA 93433
Non-Emergency Matters Requiring Immediate Attention
For matters that need immediate attention, but are not considered emergencies, please contact the Grover Beach Police Department at (805) 473-4511.
Long-Term / Chronic Issues
For assistance or inquiries pertaining to long-term or chronic issues, please contact the appropriate officer assigned to the geographical area where you live. Please note that there may be a delay in response time from any of these assigned senior police officers due to individual work schedules, vacations, or other types of leave. If you do not receive a response after one week, please call or send an email inquiry to the Community Partnership Program Coordinator / Supervisor
