A Message from Police Chief Robert Luna:

I want to take this opportunity to reach out to you during this coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis to reassure you that the Police Department is fully committed to the ongoing City efforts to ensuring the safety and health of our community.
 
We have taken many steps to protect our community, our frontline officers, and support staff and mitigate the exposure and transmission of COVID-19. We've modified our calls for service protocols, adjusted staffing, and are continuing to ensure the cleanliness of our facilities and fleet.
 
We assure our community that despite the changes, none of our recent adjustments have resulted in fewer officers patrolling in our community and investigating crimes. There will be no changes in our response to priority one calls, and we will still enforce the law during this crisis. Public safety remains our #1 priority. 
 
The Police Department is focusing on prevention and intervention through increased visibility and education. We want to reduce the workload that criminal acts and reckless behavior, such as driving while impaired, can create for our medical professionals. During this public health crisis, it is critical that medical treatment and hospital beds are reserved for those who are very sick.
 
We seek your voluntary compliance on all health orders and directives. These directives have been put in place for your safety. Please practice social distancing by staying home. 

As we navigate this challenging public health crisis, the men and women of the Long Beach Police Department will maintain essential police services and will continue to keep our community safe. Thank you for your ongoing partnership in helping us reduce crime and limit the spread of COVID-19.

LBPD Response to COVID-19
Given the magnitude of the COVID-19 crisis facing our community, the LBPD has implemented changes in its operations to maintain essential police functions and services.

Long Beach Public Safety Dispatchers have implemented additional screening questions for 9-1-1 callers.

These questions will not delay response times and is being done to protect the health and safety of the community and first responders.

We ask that all community members voluntarily comply with the recent "Safer at Home" Health Department order in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy.

As we continue to encourage community members to practice social distancing and limit their time in public places, we remind individuals to utilize the Online Reporting System to file police reports for non-violent crimes online, rather than filing them in person.
