Community Policing

Effective Policing

In law enforcement, the concept of “BEAT patrolling” has become a popular trend. The Paramount Sheriff’s Station has been using the BEAT system for the past few years to great success.

Getting to Know Your BEAT Deputy

The City is divided into four BEAT (areas). Each BEAT also has a lead deputy that serves as the main contact for that BEAT. Being assigned to a specific part of town, the officers get to know the neighborhood up close. At the same time, residents and business owners develop relationships with their BEAT deputy. Our Public Safety Department credits this kind of community-based policing with helping to reduce violent crime in Paramount. If you have any questions about the BEAT system, contact our Public Safety Department at (562) 220-2002.


Report Suspicious or Criminal Activities to the Sheriff, Not Security Companies

There have been reports recently that private property owners or managers that use security companies for patrol services have been reporting suspicious activities on their properties only to these companies and not to the Sheriff’s Department.

It is important that any nuisance, suspicious, and/or criminal activity taking place at a condo or apartment complex or commercial property, whether that property is being patrolled by private security companies or not, should be reported to the Sheriff’s Department 24-hour dispatch line at (562) 623-3500 or at (562) 220-2002 during regular business hours.

Likewise, any citations issued for violations of the Paramount Municipal Code or California Vehicle Code are only valid if issued by the City of Paramount or law enforcement personnel.

If you have received such a citation, and have any questions regarding its validity, please call the Paramount Sheriff’s Station at (562) 220-2002. Hours of operation are Sunday thru Monday, 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and holidays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
