Southern Division is small in size, but huge in traffic flow. With busy freeways and 64 unincorporated communities of Los Angeles County as its primary jurisdiction, Southern Division serves over 10 million residents. This population is larger than the population of 42 states and is home to 26 percent of all California residents.

Division boundaries reach from the Malibu coastline to the Inland Empire; from the beaches of Orange County to the high desert of the Antelope Valley. Everything in between includes the television and movie industry hub in Hollywood and Burbank, Los Angeles International Airport, dozens of sporting and entertainment venues and several major world amusement/theme parks.

Despite being the smallest geographical area of the CHP's eight field Divisions, Southern Division has the largest number of uniformed and non-uniformed employees. Los Angeles is the real-world training ground for recently graduated officers. It is largely due to the workload of Southern Division whose officers documented 50,622 collisions in 2012, more than any other Division in the state.

An estimated one-third of all CHP motorcycles are assigned to Southern Division. When a traffic violation or collision occurs, motorcycles are the only vehicles that can weave between the gridlocked cars. Some freeways have no shoulders to allow emergency vehicles access to a collision scene. With Los Angeles being a favorite destination for dignitaries and visiting heads of state, motorcycle officers serve as part of the Protective Services Detail.

Southern Division is a partner with Caltrans in the Los Angeles Regional Transportation Management Center. With a staff of CHP and Caltrans employees, the center uses advanced transportation management technology, including computer-aided dispatch, adjustable ramp meter intervals, changeable message signs and closed circuit cameras with live views of most Los Angeles County highways.

Los Angeles County also has the largest Asian and Latino populations in the country, with over 1.4 million and 4.8 million respectively. Southern Division has Asian and Latino community liaisons to educate about traffic safety laws and inform them of the departmental programs and services available.

Each day, Southern Division employees strive to maximize service to the public in need of aid or information. The California Highway Patrol has built durable partnerships with over 50 allied agencies in Los Angeles County. Our goal is to collaborate with these agencies to protect the residents of Los Angeles County and develop innovative ways of delivering services tailored to each community’s needs.
