El Segundo takes pride in being one of the safest cities in Southern California with the lowest crime rate of any non-gated community in the County and one of the highest numbers of police personnel per capita of any Southland city. Emergency response is lightning fast, with dispatch less than one minute following a 911 call.

In recent years, the City of El Segundo has increased its commitment to public safety by investing in its own 1040 AM radio bandwidth to broadcast emergency information, implementing a mass notification system for emergency alerts, and instituting an Area Command Program to respond to quality of life issues.

The fire department features one of the region's most advanced emergency preparedness plans, along with a new, state-of-the-art, LEED-certified fire station on the eastside of town.




El Segundo has more police officers per capita than any other South Bay city.
