Short Closure at SBPD

The lobby to the Santa Barbara Police Department will close Wednesday morning so that personnel can attend funeral services for Al Alvarez, a valued member of the department who died recently. Services such as 9-1-1 and other emergency response will be unaffected, but the offices for records, parking, permits, fingerprinting, investigations, and patrol will close between 9:30 a.m. and noon.
