Nationally-recognized by the White House and the US Department of Justice, we are touted as the gold-standard in Community Policing. See how we invent and implement programs that increase Hawthorne’s safety, partnerships, and public trust like no other.

The best way to keep up with what our officers are doing daily out in the community. From NextDoor, to Instagram, to virtual ride-alongs on Snapchat, you will find our social media connections informative and engaging.

A great place to learn about our Department, our leadership, our vision, our organization, and our philosophies behind all of the services we provide for our community.  Some cool photos too!    

Here you will find the latest news about us.  Along with press releases, we routinely share Department achievements, personal blogs and stories about everyday life at HPD and about our community programs.

Find our convenient ways to get in touch with us including email, telephone, or ‘live-chat’ right from this website. Hawthorne City services including LAC Fire and graffiti-removal can also be found here.
