Temecula Police Dept
Do You Feel Safe In Temecula? You Should!
The Temecula Police Dept is here to protect and serve. Anywhere you live, you want to know you are safe. Safety is the number one reason why people move to or from an area. Because let’s face it, if you feel like you are going to be harmed in anyway, you are bound to leave.
But that’s why we have a great set of men and women dedicated to protecting us at the Temecula Police Department.
With a police force of more than 100 law enforcement officers protecting the community, it provides comfort to each of us. The officer to population ratio is one officer for every 973 residents. The national average is 1.3 officers per 1,000 residents, which makes us right about par with that. A very comforting thought indeed.
Numbers To Know
Residents should be aware they have two office locations, in the event you need to contact them. One is in the Promenade Mall. The other location is in beautiful Old Town Temecula.
Their contact numbers are:
For their 24 Hr. Non Emergency Number (951) 696 – HELP (4357)
For life threatening and serious emergency always call 9-1-1.
This group of dedicated individuals is led by the current Police Chief Andre M. O’Hara, who with over 20 years of experience in law enforcement in all areas provides quality and integrity to his role.
His vision of how his force should run is a refreshing new approach from traditional views in the past. He is certainly a forward thinking individual.
There Is More That Meets The Eye
In addition to traditional officers, the Temecula Police Dept has others forces at work to keep you protected. This team will continue to protect the community a safe place for all of its residents.
Additional teams include:
- The Youth Accountability Team (YAT)
- Special Enforcement Team (SET)
- Promenade Mall Team

Each team is specially trained in their realm of expertise to provide residents with high quality service, and respect.

It should also be noted that the Temecula Police Dept offers additional programs to assist our community as well.
Sometimes the best way to protect is to educate, and they offer the following programs:
- T.A.G. which is Temecula Against Graffiti
- Stop Light Abuse Program or SLAP
- Robbery Presentations
- Business Security Services
- Off-Road Vehicle Enforcement
- Crime Free Multi-Housing
There are additional programs as well, if you contact the local police department at their non emergency number they can provide you with additional details.
Be sure the next time you see one of our dedicated men or women in the local community to thank them for their services. They are the reason you can safely leave your home and enjoy all the beauty that Temecula has to offer.
