West Covina Police department
About two-thirds of all sworn officers work in this division, which focuses on patrolling city streets, answering calls for service, and identifying potential crime problems. Under the Community Service Area Policing program, four dedicated lieutenants and their crews are assigned a specific quadrant of the City and tasked with resolving public safety concerns for residents, neighborhoods, and businesses. This division includes the Traffic Unit, the K-9 Unit, Jail Operations, Reserve Officers, Police Cadets and award-winning SHOP senior volunteers who perform non-hazardous duties to free up sworn officers.
Code Enforcement Division
The Code Enforcement Division is under the direction of the Police Department. The Division consists of a Supervisor and one full-time Code Enforcement Officer.
The focus of Code Enforcement is to investigate violations of laws or ordinances relating to public health, safety and welfare, the operation of businesses, consumer protection, building standards, land-use regulations and other municipal interests. Code Enforcement works in conjunction with the Planning Division, Building Division, Public Works Department, the Police Department, Community Services Department, the County Health Department, Vector Control, and any other public agency as needed. Code Enforcement Officers typically respond to complaints filed by citizens. However, they also conduct proactive enforcement when necessary.
West Covina Police Department /Record Division
The Records Division personnel are responsible for data entry of all police reports into law enforcement databases, the maintenance of police files, and assisting the public.
The Records Division is a vital function of the West Covina Police Department in providing service to the community at the Records Counter and by telephone. In addition to assisting the general public, Records Division personnel assist sworn personnel with report management and subpoena oversight.
The California Law Enforcement Telecommunication System (CLETS) is crucial to the day-to-day operations of the Records Division. All personnel must be CLETS certified every two years. The CLETS system must be monitored 24 hours a day and maintains vital records for stolen/stored vehicles, missing persons, missing property, and want/warrant information.
