The Hayward Area is proud to serve over 700,000 residents, commuters, and tourists who travel in our jurisdiction each day. The Hayward Area encompasses the southwest portion of Alameda County and a small portion of San Mateo County near the Dumbarton Bridge.  We are responsible for law enforcement services for over 45 miles of major arterial freeways, including I-580, I-880, I-238, SR-84, SR-92, and SR-262. Additionally, the Hayward Area and Castro Valley Areas merged in 2024 and the Hayward Area now serves as the primary traffic law enforcement agency for approximately 470 miles of unincorporated county roadways located within the communities of Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Ashland, Cherryland and Fairview. The Hayward Area is committed to continuing to serve the these unincorporated areas with the same safety, service, and security that the Castro Valley office provided. The Hayward Area also provides law enforcement services for several state facilities, including the California School for the Deaf and Blind, the Fremont and Hayward offices of the Department of Motor Vehicles, various Caltrans facilities, and offices of State Senators and Assemblymembers.

The Hayward Area places an emphasis on forging and maintaining partnerships with traffic safety stakeholders, which includes collaboration with local community groups, other public agencies, elected officials, and feedback from residents regarding traffic safety goals and concerns. 

We offer several programs and services to improve traffic safety, multiple public education programs developed for a wide variety of age groups and directed toward impaired, distracted, and defensive driving. We also offer free services, which include child safety seat inspection and education, vehicle identification verification and citation clearance. Through the combined efforts of public education and ongoing enforcement, the Hayward Area always works toward enhancing public trust and making a positive difference in public safety.

The Hayward Area deploys a Special Enforcement Unit which provides focused enforcement on specific traffic complaints giving extra focus to our unincorporated and residential areas. If you would like to report any traffic issues or reckless driving, please contact us at 345recklessdriving@chp.ca.gov or leave a voice message at (510) 901-0373.

If you have any questions, or concerns or would like to just stop in and familiarize yourself with your local CHP office, please feel free to visit us or contact the Hayward Area at (510) 489-1500.
