Welcome to our LBPD Newsletter!

As senseless acts of violence continue to impact our nation we want to remind you to follow the philosophy of “See Something, Say Something” when witnessing or hearing suspicious activity. Anyone with information regarding a threat of violence is asked to call the LBPD immediately by dialing 9-1-1, or (562) 435-6711 for a non-emergency situation. 

The LBPD trains and prepares for all critical scenarios on a daily basis. We will remain vigilant and schedule additional patrols to both patrol high visibility areas and assure you, our community feels safe at all times.

The LBPD’s Online Police Reporting System allows you to submit select police reports online at your convenience.

What types of reports can be filed online:
  • Lost Property: if the theft/attempted theft occurred in a residence or business, in a garage, or in an underground parking structure, it is a BURGLARY or attempted burglary, not a theft, and cannot be filed online.
  • Theft or Attempt Theft
  • Vandalism: if the vandalism involves multiple vehicles or multiple properties, you cannot file the report online.
  • Hit and Run: parked vehicles only.
  • Annoying or Harassing Phone Calls: if you believe that you are in immediate danger, please call 911.

If your incident is not included in the above categories, please contact Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711 to request that a police officer be dispatched to your location.

The LBPD takes curfew violations seriously and will enforce this law with your child’s safety in mind. Our experience has shown us that youth who are on the street after curfew are more likely to become victims of violent crime, and also are more likely to become involved in criminal behavior. We are reminding parents the importance of knowing the whereabouts of your children at all times, and to ensure they get home safely BEFORE curfew. Together, we can all have a more enjoyable summer!
