Placer County has a population of approximately 355,687 and land area of 1,506 square miles. We are located in diverse Northern California, bordering Sacramento, Nevada and El Dorado Counties. Over half of beautiful Placer County is National Forest and State Park property offering wild and scenic rivers, breathtaking streams, valley views, and mountain vistas. Lower elevations include grasslands, gold rush era-town sites and gently rolling hills. Two major highways, Interstate 80 and State Route 49, intersect the city of Auburn. State Route 65, which leads north from Interstate 80, allows travelers to access the growing cities of Roseville, Rocklin and Lincoln and continue further North toward Yuba-Sutter Counties.
The Auburn Area Office of the California Highway Patrol is staffed with thirty-three officers, along with five essential civilians and fourteen senior volunteers. Our primary responsibility is traffic management and investigation of traffic collisions in the unincorporated areas of Placer County. Traffic complaints can be directed to our watch officer during normal business hours. The Auburn Area also offers a number of traffic safety programs. Contact us for child safety seat inspections, new driver orientation programs, and senior driver programs.
The staff of the Auburn Area is committed to providing the highest level of Safety, Service and Security to the residents and visitors traveling throughout Placer County. Our staff does not just work here; we live, shop, drive, and recreate here. We are part of this community and we have a stake in protecting and maintaining the quality of life we all expect. As a public safety provider, we value the trust and confidence placed upon our organization by the community. I am confident your interactions with the Auburn CHP staff will be conducted with the utmost courtesy, professionalism, and respect. If we fail to meet or exceed your service expectations, I invite you to contact me personally.
