Arcadia Municipal Police, Code & Regulations


The Arcadia California Municipal Code has been kept current by regular supplementation by Municipal Code Corporation, its successor in interest.

The code is organized by subject matter under an expandable three-factor decimal numbering system which is designed to facilitate supplementation without disturbing the numbering of existing provisions. Each section number designates, in sequence, the numbers of the Title, chapter, and section. Thus, Section 2.12.040 is Section .040, located in Chapter 2.12 of Title 2. In most instances, sections are numbered by tens (.010, .020, .030, etc.), leaving nine vacant positions between original sections to accommodate future provisions. Similarly, chapters and titles are numbered to provide for internal expansion.

In parentheses following each section is a legislative history identifying the specific sources for the provisions of that section. This legislative history is complemented by an ordinance disposition table, following the text of the Code, listing by number all ordinances, their subjects, and where they appear in the codification; and beginning with Supplement No. 22, legislation can be tracked using the “Code Comparative Table and Disposition List.”

A subject-matter index, with complete cross-referencing, locates specific code provisions by individual section numbers.
