The City of Gardena is divided into three districts (District 1, District 2, and District 3), each with its own District Policing Team that consists of a District Lieutenant, District Sergeant, and four Officers. District Policing is a customized service model that allows the police to interact with and understand the needs of the community in an effort to build and maintain Police-Community Partnerships. The intended result is to curtail criminal activity and maintain the high standards of living within our neighborhoods.

Note: New meetings for specific areas or neighborhoods can be developed in cooperation with your respective District Lieutenant. Once pandemic restrictions have been lifted, we anticipate an eventual full return to live/in-person meetings.
