The Tustin Police Department is the local law enforcement agency of the city of Tustin, California, United States. The department's jurisdiction includes the entire city of Tustin, which covers nearly 11 square miles (28 km2) and a population of over 75,000, as well as the Tustin Legacy development.

History[edit]

Founded in 1928, the Tustin Police Department started with one officer, John Stanton. Before Stanton was hired as a "Street Superintendent" a title which changed to "Chief of Police" two months later, Stanton was a Huntington Beach Policeman. Chief Stanton was the only Tustin officer until 1942. At the time of his appointment, there were no police headquarters or stations, he took calls from his home.

Law Enforcement in Tustin[edit]

The Tustin Police Department was the first municipal law enforcement agency in the City of Tustin. After the city's incorporation on September 15, 1927, the newly elected city council felt that as a city, Tustin should have a police force.

Tustin Police Department[edit]

The Tustin Police Department was founded in 1928. Much of the city's membership came from city residents one person at a time. The Tustin Police Department had roughly three officers in 1948, twenty years after its founding date.[2]

Currently, the Tustin Police Department has three divisions: Administration, Administrative Services, and Operations.

Administration Division[edit]

The Administration Division encompasses the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies or 'CALEA', which accredits over 1,000 agencies under standard developed by public safety practitioners and leaders. In addition to CALEA, the division also holds the department's command staff and Professional Standards Division, which is responsible for recruitment and hiring.

Administrative Services[edit]

The Administrative Services Division houses the City's Communications unit, which answers 911 calls originating in the City of Tustin and non-emergency calls for information and records purposes. The division also is home to the Police Services Officers, which perform a wide variety of duties in the day-to-day operations of the police department. These officers have a range of different capacities. Among the services encompassed in the division, it also holds the Property & Evidence Unit as well as the city's records unit.
