Neighborhood Policing Division
New for 2018, this division of SDPD focuses on chronic, quality-of-life neighborhood issues such as graffiti, crime and homelessness. Report issues using Get It Done or email NeighborhoodPolicing@pd.sandiego.gov. This is not an appropriate resource when you need an officer on the scene in a timely manner — in that case, use 911 or the non-emergency number.

Home checks are done for a minimum of three days and a maximum of 30. To take advantage of this service, contact the San Diego Police Northern Division at 858-552-1737.
