The Long Beach Police Department is dedicated to professional, proactive and innovative policing in order to keep the citizens of the city as safe as possible. The men and women of the LBPD are motivated to work with the people of the city in order to find new ways of how to keep the city safe. It is essential that both the community and the police department work with each other in order to find new dangers that lie within the city.
The police could only do much on their own, which is why the police department is always open for people to visit if they have a complaint or if they would like to volunteer their time. It is important that everybody contributes to the safety of the city or it would be impossible for the residents of the city to be safe at all times.
The Police Chief Robert Luna works tirelessly to make sure that the entire department is organized and is working as efficiently as possible. It is his job to keep all of the officers are excited and motivated every day to go out into the street and risk their lives for people they have never met. The police department in its entirety is made up of smaller divisions, which separates the work load and responsibilities.
This makes it easier for everyone to complete tasks, but it relies on the communication among each other in order to work properly. Some of the different divisions in the department include: Internal Affairs, Administration, Financial Bureau, Investigations Bureau, Patrol Bureau, and the Support Bureau. Separately, each division would not be able to make sure that the city is safe, but when they all come together for a case, then it will be done efficiently and correctly.
Whenever someone is arrested in the city of Long Beach, they will be taken to the LBPD, where they will undergo the booking process and will be held until the inmate is bailed out of jail or is transferred to the county jail.
