Laguna Niguel enjoys the reputation of being one of the safest cities in Orange County and has a history of having the lowest crime rates in the County. The low rates can be attributed to a combination of factors including the level of contract law enforcement services, demographic makeup of the community, land use patterns, household income and education, private and gate-guarded communities, and an alert and involved public. Police Services are provided by contract with the Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD). The Sheriff's Department protects the citizens, enforces the laws, and encourages crime prevention. Law enforcement services include patrol, traffic enforcement, accident analysis and investigation, parking enforcement, and general and special investigations.
The Chief of Police is the Department Head and is responsible for the day-to-day operations in the City. View a brochure listing services offered through Laguna Niguel Police Services.
