The Escondido Police Department is committed to creating safer communities by focusing its efforts on environmental transformation, one neighborhood at a time. By partnering with various city departments, community based organizations and neighborhood groups they hope to affect long term solutions that will result in measurable crime reduction and an enhanced quality of life in your neighborhood.  Throughout the life of each project you can expect to see increased patrols as well as special enforcement efforts in your neighborhood.  You can also expect to see other city departments (Code Enforcement, Public Works, Neighborhood Services, etc.) focusing their efforts and devoting resources to your neighborhood as well.  As your Mayor, I’m excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and ask for your support, as well as your involvement, in making your neighborhood a great place to live, work and play.

I am pleased to announce that the Neighborhood Transformation Project completed its first project on South Escondido Boulevard and has moved to East Escondido.  Under the five year comprehensive plan to cover the entire urban core throughout the next year the Police Department will work closely with Neighborhood Services, Public Works, Code Enforcement and many other city departments, as well as our community and faith-based partners, to further our goal of environmental change, one neighborhood at a time.
