The East Patrol Division's substation has served as headquarters for the division's police officers and support personnel since 1994. Officers deploy from this facility, which also serves as a gathering place for a number of reoccurring community meetings. East Division police officers provide law enforcement services to approximately 170,000 residents and respond to approximately 53,000 dispatched calls for police service each year. Calls for service include those that require an emergent and non-emergent response, crime reports, and quality of life concerns.
Measured at 24 square miles, the East Division is the largest geographical patrol division of the police department and comprises approximately 46 percent of the city. It is bounded by Del Amo Boulevard to the north; the Pacific Ocean shoreline to the south; Orange County cities to the east; and, Cherry Avenue and the City of Signal Hill to the west.
The East Division is home to the Long Beach Airport; California State University, Long Beach; the East Anaheim Street Corridor; Long Beach Towne Center; Belmont Shore; 4th Street "Retro Row" and a number of historic and idyllic neighborhoods and parks, including Naples Islands; Belmont Heights; Rancho Los Alamitos Historic Ranch and Gardens; Bixby Park; Rose Park; and, El Dorado Regional Park and Nature Center.
Police/community partnerships and the ongoing transparent dialogues that result are vital to reducing criminal activity and maintaining a healthy, satisfactory quality of life.
