SBPD Opens Community Policing Office at Franklin Center

The men and women of the Santa Barbara Police Department are pleased to announce the creation of the Franklin Neighborhood Center Community Policing Office located at 1136 E. Montecito Street.


The men and women of the Santa Barbara Police Department are pleased to announce the creation of the Franklin Neighborhood Center Community Policing Office located at 1136 E. Montecito Street. This one-year pilot program is the result of a collaboration between the Santa Barbara Police Department and the Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Department. The goals of the program are to increase police presence at and around the Franklin Neighborhood Center, to enhance our community oriented policing efforts by providing a location away from the Police Station where citizens can interact with officers in their community, and to augment programs and other activities at the Franklin Neighborhood Center by providing a greater sense of security for both staff and participants.

A brief ceremony to commemorate the opening of the Community Policing Office will be held at the Franklin Neighborhood Center on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
