In Case of Emergency Dial 9-1-1
Please be aware that 9-1-1 emergency calls made from cell phones are first routed through the California Highway Patrol, which causes a delay in response time. Make sure you know exactly what City you are in, so that the CHP can route your call to the correct law enforcement agency without additional delays.
- Community Survey on Public Safety Related Services (project report) The public outreach process extended over a seven-month period between September 2015 and April 2016. The study indicates that the overall state of public safety in West Hollywood as perceived by the community is good or even very good, especially in comparison with other nearby jurisdictions.
Concerns about crime are very low, especially violent crime. At the same time, however, there is increasing concern about the impact of the homeless on the quality of life of other residents. The other major public safety issue of concern is pedestrian and traffic safety. Download power point presentation.
