Contract Cities: Letter from the Sheriff



Over the past 50 years, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department has had the privilege of providing law enforcement services to our contract cities. Our first two contracts were with the cities of San Juan Capistrano and Villa Park. Since then we have contracted with the cities of Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Lake Forest, Laguna Woods, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, Stanton, and our newest partner, Yorba Linda. In addition to these contract cities, the Sheriff’s Department provides law enforcement services to the unincorporated areas within Orange County, OCTA, Courts, Harbor and John Wayne Airport.

The relationships that have been forged between the Sheriff’s Department and our contract partners are beyond what any of us could have imagined. We provide quality service combined with cost effective law enforcement protection to our contract partners. Without the cooperation of our contract partners none of this would be possible.

I would like to thank all of our contract partners and the men and women of this department for the outstanding job they do, day in and day out.
The hard work and dedication to service that the members of this fine department display is a testament to what this department stands for and what our Mission Statement/Core Values are based on:

Integrity without compromise;
Service above self;
Professionalism in the performance of duty;
Vigilance in safeguarding our community.

We look forward to continuing these partnerships for many years to come.
Sheriff-Coroner
