Welcome to the King City CHP Area. On behalf of the men and women of this command, we appreciate your visit to our webpage. King City CHP is a small command, but with a huge expanse of area that we are responsible for. The surrounding areas are primarily agricultural and its inhabitants share a diverse heritage dating back to the Spanish conquistadors and early Native American settlers. Presently, the majority of travelers are those going from Northern California to the greater Los Angeles Area. In addition to travelers with legitimate business, our officers routinely stop people with criminal intentions.
As commander, I am honored to work with the men and women of this office who strive every day to provide the highest level of indispensable service to the residents and travelers of Southern Monterey County.
