In case of emergency, call 9-1-1
The City of La Puente’s primary public safety services are provided by the County of Los Angeles. The L.A. County Fire Department serves residents and business operators from two sites within the city, and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department support is dispatched from the Industry substation facility located on North Hudson Ave.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department
Law enforcement services for the City are provided by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department through the Industry Sheriff’s Station. The Industry Sheriff’s Station is located at 150 N. Hudson Avenue in the City of Industry. Use of the Sheriff’s Department provides the City with highly professional law enforcement services without incurring overly burdensome capital expenditures and public indebtedness that can occur when a city finances its own police department.
In addition to providing patrol and investigative services, the Sheriff’s Department offers a broad range of support services that are readily available from nearby operation stations. Local control is facilitated through the close cooperation of the Station Captain and City officials. Lieutenant Pete Cacheiro serves as the city’s Police Chief, oversees the city police contract and Code Enforcement, and has a dedicated Special Assignment Team that address immediate community concerns, and works closely with local schools, church groups and businesses. Sergeant John Suh works with the police Chief to insure the safety of the community. Lieutenant Cacheiro or Sergeant Suh can be reached at Industry Station or at the La Puente City Hall at (626) 330-3322 or (626) 855-1500.
Volunteers On Patrol
The Industry Sheriff's Station provides a home base for the Volunteers On Patrol (VOP) program. From this base of operations, the VOPs provide the community with information on public safety and law enforcement programs. Patrolling the streets of La Puente in their vehicles, they are a valuable asset to the Sheriff's Department Deputies, working as the eyes and ears for law enforcement in the community. For additional information, please call the Industry Sheriff's Station at (626) 330-3322.
The purpose of Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers is to prevent and reduce crime, by forming a partnership among the community, law enforcement and the media to offer anonymity and cash rewards to anyone providing information leading to an arrest, thereby making the community a safer place for all who live or work in the region.
