Area Commander Program

The Buena Park Police Department is driven by the philosophy of community policing.   As such, we expect our officers, detectives, and support staff to spend time identifying and finding solutions to problems and concerns in the community.  We strive to create partnerships within the community, so that we can work together to address issues that are important to the people who live and work in the Buena Park community.

In an effort to expand on this philosophy, two Police Lieutenants are assigned geographical areas within the City. The West Area Commander oversees the portion of the City west of Knott Avenue and the East Area Commander is responsible for the portion of the City east of Knott Avenue.  These Lieutenants strive to deliver community policing and problem-solving strategies in their assigned areas; and disseminate crime trend information from the crime analysis to the public.         
All community members of Buena Park are welcome to contact the appropriate Area Commander to discuss any problems.
