Because the C hula Vista Police
D epartm ent believes com m unity
involvem ent is an integral part of its
m ission, the departm ent created the
C om m unity Relations U nit to closely w ork
w ith the city’s residents. The unit w ill further
the principles of com m unity problem
solving through outreach program s,
partnerships, volunteer groups and other
proactive citizen involvem ent program s.
The C om m unity Relations U nit is prim arily
responsible for enhancing the dialogue
betw een the com m unity and the
departm ent. A n im portant role of the C RU
is gathering input through com m unity
m eetings, surveys and personal contact.
The C RU facilitates the follow ing
program s—C rim e Prevention, C rim e Free
M ulti-H ousing, uniform ed volunteer patrols
and graffiti abatem ent, w hich serve to
educate the public and im prove the quality
of life in the com m unity. The unit supports
the departm ent’s m ission to develop
innovative partnerships, prom ote
com m unity dialogue and enhance problem
solving.
The Communit y
Cit izen’s Survey
O ne aspect of com m unity policing is
understanding the public’s perception of
crim e and disorder, as w ell as m easuring
the confidence citizens have in the police.
To answ er these questions, the C hula Vista
Police D epartm ent, along w ith the San
D iego A ssociation of G overnm ents
(SA N D A G ), designed a com m unity survey
to m easure citizens’attitudes and
perceptions of the Police D epartm ent, and
their assessm ent of crim e and disorder
problem s. The survey w as designed to
allow trend analysis based upon the
previous citizen survey conducted by the
departm ent. In order to assure objectivity,
the survey w as adm inistered by SA N D A G .
The survey w as distributed to a random
sam ple of 3,000 households in C hula Vista.
Respondents w ere asked: “In general,
how satisfied are you w ith Police Services?”
and 92% responded very satisfied or
satisfied.
W hen asked: “O verall, m y contact(s) w ith
the C hula Vista Police D epartm ent have
been...”81% of the respondents rated their
contact(s) as excellent or good.
W hen asked; “H ow concerned are you
about the follow ing issues in your
neighborhood?”83% of the respondents
stated that speeding w as a concern, 78%
felt burglary w as a concern, and 76% of the
respondents stated they are concerned
about graffiti in their neighborhood. These
are the sam e top concerns as the 1997
survey.
To address resident priorities, the Police
D epartm ent has pursued the follow ing
crim e reduction efforts:
Anti-Speeding Initiative
The Police D epartm ent, through the
Traffic U nit and the Serious Traffic O ffender
Program (STO P) w orks to proactively
reduce vehicle speed levels, traffic
violations and collisions. In the last year the
Traffic U nit has increased the use of SM A RT
U nits w hich m akes citizens aw are of their
speed and includes a statistical package to
analyze traffic data. The unit also conducts
public aw areness cam paigns stressing the
consequence of driving unlicensed, under
the influence of alcohol, or w ithout seat
belts. Further, the departm ent collaborates
w ith regional partners to enhance traffic
safety.
Residential Burglary
Prevention Project
A fter studying burglary patterns
throughout C hula Vista, Police D epartm ent
staff identified key risk factors that attracted
burglars to certain hom es, as w ell as those
protective devices that w ere m ost effective
at preventing burglaries. Police
D epartm ent staff w orked w ith new hom e
developers to include built-in burglary
prevention features for all new hom es. To
reduce the risk of burglary in existing
housing, the Police D epartm ent hired a
C rim e-Free M ulti-H ousing coordinator, w ho
w orks w ith property m anagers on w ays to
im prove the safety and security of rental
properties.
Residential burglaries in C hula Vista
have dropped 24% since 1999, and
continue to decrease.
Graffiti Reduction
A fter analyzing the nature of the graffiti
problem in C hula Vista, the Police
D epartm ent devised a three-pronged anti-
graffiti program : eradication, enforcem ent,
and prevention. The eradication
com ponent involves rem oving graffiti as
soon as possible, through the joint efforts
of Public W orks, South Bay C om m unity
Services, the Police D epartm ent, and
juveniles on probation. G raffiti enforcem ent
focuses on apprehending offenders.
Prevention involves w orking w ith businesses
and hom eow ners to protect their properties
from graffiti by reducing access to
repeatedly tagged areas, increasing
lighting, and using surface coatings that
m ake it easier to rem ove graffiti.
Cit izen’s Academy
The departm ent held its first C itizen’s
A cadem y this year. It w as structured after
the Police A cadem y, w hich is required for
all peace officers. The academ y provides
C hula Vista residents w ith first-hand
experience and inform ation about how
their Police D epartm ent w orks. C lasses
include instruction in com m unications (911),
patrol procedures, crim e scenes, traffic
control and enforcem ent, investigations
and m any other topics. The C itizen’s
A cadem y is free of charge and requires a
one-night-a-w eek com m itm ent for eleven
w eeks. Residents interested in participating
m ay phone 409-5458.
C om m unity policing has becom e the
foundation for m odern police strategies.
Likew ise, the C hula Vista Police
D epartm ent’s partnership w ith the
com m unity has becom e an essential
com ponent in enhancing the com m unity’s
quality of life. Tough O n C rim e (TO C ) is a
crim e control tool that enhances the
departm ent’s ability to identify em erging
crim e problem s and com m unicate this
inform ation directly w ith patrol officers and
their supervisors.
The TO C program identifies crim e and
crim e trends through the use of advanced
technology, analysis and m apping
capabilities that assures officers have
access to real-tim e inform ation about
crim es occurring on their beats. For
exam ple, recent TO C presentations to
patrol officers included m aps of auto theft
hot spot locations, coupled w ith charts
depicting the m ost popular m ake and
m odel of cars stolen in C hula Vista.
TO C w as developed as a proactive
program w ith a focus on reducing crim e
Tough On Crime
through the rapid deploym ent of personnel
and resources, relentless follow -up, and
scientific assessm ent of the im pact of these
efforts.
TO C inform ation also enables officers to
identify repeat problem s that m ay be the
focus of long-term , collaborative problem -
solving efforts. Know n as problem -oriented
policing (PO P) projects, these efforts
typically involve a detailed analysis of a
specific crim e or disorder problem .
Responses to these problem s m ay include
changing the physical environm ent of the
problem location so that crim es are harder
to com m it.
The Tough O n C rim e program provides
an essential proactive tool for m em bers of
the departm ent to utilize in efforts to stop
crim e before it occurs.
The C ity of C hula Vista has seen an
overall decrease in crim e during the last
five years. In 1996, Part O ne crim es
(hom icide, forcible rape, aggravated
assault, burglary, larceny and m otor vehicle
theft) totaled 8,821, w ith a slight increase in
1997 to 9,012. In 1998, Part O ne crim es
w ere dow n to 8,150, and in 1999, they
dropped to 7,009. In the year 2000, Part
O ne crim es rem ained low at 7,048.

Police-School
Part nerships
The School Resource O fficer program is
one of the C hula Vista Police D epartm ent’s
m ost successful partnerships. The
departm ent has been w orking w ith the
Sw eetw ater U nion H igh School D istrict
since 1993 and expanded the program to
the elem entary schools in 1995. A s these
relationships strengthen, SRO ’s are
essential in ensuring school cam puses are
safe and secure learning environm ents.
The city is divided into three
geographical sectors w ith a team of officers
assigned to cover high schools, m iddle
schools and feeder elem entary schools.
This allow s for consistent coverage and
early identification of at-risk children as they
progress through their education.
Emory Element ary School
School Resource Program
Guiding Our Yout h
The SRO s serve as role m odels,
reinforcing good attitudes and influencing
behavior by their positive interaction w ith
students. Beyond
the law
enforcem ent role
of critical incident
responder, SRO s
often participate
in cam pus
activities such as
the D r. Seuss
Reads A cross
A m erica Program .
A dditionally,
special program s such as the “Every 15
M inutes”A lcohol, Beverage and C ontrol
(A BC ) program are conducted to m ake
children aw are of the consequences of
alcohol.
Furthering the departm ent’s interactions
w ith students, a SRO bike program w as
initiated this year. W hen possible, SRO s
police the cam pus on bikes that provide for
greater m obility and allow s officers to be
m ore accessible to students.
Fut ure Expansion Planned
Recently, the departm ent received a
C O PS in Schools grant to add four m ore
officers to the program . The grant aw ard
w as a result of a joint application by the
Police D epartm ent, the Sw eetw ater H igh
School D istrict and the C hula Vista
Elem entary School D istrict. The C O PS in
Schools program is based on the prem ise
that trained law enforcem ent officers
w orking in schools m ake a difference on
m any levels. They create a safe and secure
environm ent and a link to local law
enforcem ent and also through everyday
contact instill a sense of respect for officers
am ong children.
Equipment Upgrades
This year the C hula Vista Police
D epartm ent began the process of
upgrading the 800 M H z radio system . The
new system integrates the departm ent’s
C om m unications C enter w ith the C ounty of
San D iego Regional C om m unications
System —a state-of-the-art com m unications
system . The RC S system provides enhanced
radio coverage for the entire city w hile also
allow ing direct com m unication w ith other
public safety agencies in the county. This
allow s for better coordination of public
safety activities betw een agencies, w hich
reduces tim e delays and im proves the
delivery of services to the com m unity. The
C om m unications C enter w as also upgraded
w ith new ergonom ic w orkstations and
com puter equipm ent.
In an effort to m aintain current
technology, the departm ent also began the
upgrade of the m obile data com puters
(M D C ) located in police vehicles this year.
M D C ’s are used to dispatch calls to officers
in the field and perm its them to run vehicle
and w arrant checks w ithout having to go
through the C om m unications C enter. The
com puters have im proved display screens
that are easier to view by officers. The new
com puter processors w ork faster and m ore
efficiently, allow ing for enhanced delivery of
police services to the
public.
A property tracking
system w as installed
allow ing for the
com puterized checkout of
sensitive police equipm ent
such as portable radios.
The system tracks and
accounts for police
equipm ent.
The departm ent is using a new police
identification card that is integrated w ith
the security system of the building. The
card perm its departm ent em ployees to
access the building w ithout using keys or
codes, w hich im proves the security of the
facility.
Technology
Crime Lab
Enhancement s
Thanks to the San
D iego Law Enforcem ent
Foundation, the C rim e
Lab’s Latent Print
Exam iners acquired
stereom icroscopes to
evaluate and com pare
latent print cases. The m icroscopes provide a
w ide range of m agnification essential for
solving cases.
A state-of-the-art evidence tracking system
that uses bar coding w as purchased for the
C rim e Lab. The system uses a com puter
program designed to track the location and
status of all property and evidence retained in
the property room . The lab receives
approxim ately 25,000 item s of evidence each
year and the system insures these item s are
accurately tracked and inventoried. The result is
a m ore efficient property room operation.
New Vehicles
C hula Vista’s grow ing population and
expanding boundaries created the need for a
m obile substation. The departm ent’s m obile
com m and center is used regularly at num erous
com m unity events, traffic checkpoints, m ajor
crim e scenes and in the
eastern portion of C hula
Vista as a substation. The
vehicle is equipped w ith a
radio system , and has
satellite capabilities and a
generator that m akes it
self-sufficient.
O ther vehicles
obtained by the Police
D epartm ent w ere a van capable of transporting
all equipm ent necessary for SW AT officers
during critical incidents and a prisoner transport
vehicle.
Police D epartm ent volunteers continue
to provide an invaluable service to the

New Police Facilit y
The current police facility w as designed
in the late 1960s, w hen the population of
the city w as approxim ately 65,000. The
forecast w as that grow th in C hula Vista
w ould peak around 80,000. Since then
C hula Vista has annexed the form er
M ontgom ery area to the south and
thousands of previously vacant acres in the
east w here a num ber of m aster-planned
com m unities are being developed. The
city’s current population is approxim ately
174,000 w ith a projected grow th to reach
275,000. D ue to the significant expansion of
personnel and equipm ent during the past
few years, the city recognized that a new
police facility w as needed.
G roundbreaking for C hula Vista’s new
A nim al C are Facility took place in the
Spring of 2000. Located on the northw est
corner of Fourth A venue and Beyer W ay,
the three-acre site is an excellent location
to expand the city’s shelter operation and
pet adoption program .
The facility w ill be m ore than tw ice the
size of the existing shelter, w hich has been
in operation for the past 27 years. The
7,800-square-foot building includes a large
conference room , office and m edical space
and a retail shop. It has kennels for 112
dogs and enough cages for 100 cats.
The cages in the cattery w ill be arranged
in a sem i-circle inside the m ain building to
The facilit y is locat ed on t he corner of Beyer Way and Fourt h Avenue, sout h of Main St reet in Chula Vist a.
The Fut ure
The departm ent’s strategic
planning process initiated the
planning phase for a new
facility. The city contracted w ith
an architectural firm to assist in
the design and building of a new facility. In
early A ugust 2000 police em ployees and
the architect began the next phase of the
design process, w hich w as to determ ine the
current and future space needs. This
process w as com pleted along w ith a
general concept of w hat the exterior w ould
look like.
The new police facility w ill be located on
the southeastern com m ercial block at
Fourth A venue and F Street. The $60
m illion project is expected to be ready by
sum m er of 2003.
Animal Care Facilit y
allow visitors to view the cats before
reaching the dog kennels located outside.
O nce outside, visitors w ill w alk along a path
lined w ith palm trees leading to the banks
of kennels. A t the end of each row of
kennels is a “get acquainted”area, a sm all
garden w here visitors w ill be able to
interact w ith the anim als they are interested
in adopting. A fourth bank of kennels has
been added to allow the city to provide
services beyond 2012. The facility also
serves Im perial Beach, Lem on G rove, and
N ational C ity.
The new A nim al C are Facility is
scheduled to open in the Fall of 2001.
