Good evening, San Gabriel

We've recently been receiving questions about our policy on cannabis. The City of San Gabriel prohibits the establishment of commercial cannabis activity. State law allows for the personal cultivation of cannabis, and the City has added several reasonable regulations regarding personal cultivation which you may find here.

Now, here's what's making news for the week of January 30, 2019:
City Council to review City's parking policies
Over the past year, the City has received an increase in resident complaints about parking enforcement. As a result of these complaints, City staff is soliciting input from the City Council about the City's parking policies.

You may read more about this item and others in our preview of the February 5 City Council meeting.
Register today for the Community Academy
Registration is now open for our next Community Academy! The Community Academy is a 12-week program designed to give citizens who live, work or attend school in San Gabriel an overview of law enforcement, including an introduction to police divisions, programs and the criminal justice system.
