​The California Highway Patrol North Sacramento Area is proud to serve the Sacramento region providing safety, service, and security
to thousands of residents, commuters, and tourists each day. As part of the CHP’s Valley Division, our office is responsible for patrolling approximately 1,262 miles of highway throughout northern Sacramento County. This includes 62 miles of state highways and 1,200 miles of county roads. The major thoroughfares through the North Sacramento Area are Interstate 5, Interstate 80, State Route 51 (Business 80 loop), State Route 160, and State Route 99. All of these freeways are used as commuter routes and as corridors for interstate commerce. These routes serve as major transportation arteries for State officials traveling from outlying areas to the State Capitol, as well as serving the state workforce which is the main source of employment for Sacramento County residents.

Sacramento is the State’s second largest inland city with a combined population of more than 2 million. It is the fourth largest city in California behind Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego. As the Capital of California, Sacramento offers more civil service jobs than any other city in the State. Government jobs bring several families into the region. These jobs, along with our proximity to the San Francisco Bay area and Sierra Nevada Mountains, make the Sacramento area the perfect place to raise a family. This increase in families also brings an increase in the number of calls to which the CHP officers respond.

In 2012, the North Sacramento Area received 170,356 calls for service. In 2013, the Area received 174,114 calls for service. Calls for service can mean anything from responding to a ladder in the roadway to a collision with multiple fatalities or responding to take a stolen vehicle report. There are several tasks a CHP officer is called to do during the course of their work day. The recent influx of people into the region means an increase of 3,758 calls over the two-year period. The 2013 data shows an average of 2,720 calls for service per officer per year for the North Sacramento area. This makes us one of the busiest CHP offices in the State!

As part of our mission, the North Sacramento Area offers a number of programs aimed at keeping you safe on the road. Contact our office for information on how to safely buckle kids in their safety seats, teach new drivers the challenges of the road, or learn some tips for driving at night, in bad weather, and in high volume traffic. In the meantime, you can help us by driving defensively and safely, obeying the posted speed, giving enough room between you and the car ahead of you, using your turn indicators, and being courteous on the road.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site.
