The East Los Angeles Area proudly delivers traffic and general law enforcement services to a population of approximately 3 million people and patrols 88 miles of freeway, and several unincorporated roadways. The East Los Angeles Area is a major thoroughfare for commercial traffic from the Port of Long Beach to the greater Los Angeles Area. Thousands of commercial vehicles enter and leave the port via Interstate710 (I710) corridor on a daily basis. Local residents, daily commuters, and travelers all share these same roadways with the “big rigs”. The East Los Angeles Area contains several major thoroughfares to Los Angeles and the Inland Empire; namely Interstate10 (I10) and State Route 60 (SR60). Interstate5 (I5), which connects Los Angeles to northern California and Orange County, also passes through the East Los Angeles Area. Within the unincorporated area, responsibilities primarily include enforcement of the Vehicle Code and traffic collision investigation. The Area is frequently called upon to provide assistance to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and numerous allied agencies which border the Area. Working closely with such agencies benefits the local communities as we develop effective communication techniques, coordinate expedited response to calls for service and employ joint emergency incident handling procedures.
