Updated Alarm Ordinance
The City of Covina has recently adopted an updated Alarm ordinance to address false alarm response issues resulting from operator and alarm monitoring company errors. The goal of the ordinance is to reduce the number of false alarm activations requiring a response by the Covina Police Department, which will free up police resources and reduce the fines levied on alarm customers.

Service Area Policing
The members of the Covina Police Department strive to provide excellent customer service to the citizens we serve. To facilitate this level of service we have divided the City into three service areas, with one lieutenant assigned to each area.
Service Area Policing allows you to contact the lieutenant who is responsible for your specific area of concern for any non-emergency issues.
Do not hesitate to contact your Service Area Lieutenant for non-emergency problems that do not need immediate response from the police. Together, we can make Covina a better place to live, work and visit. For more information or to contact your service are lieutenant, click Service Area Policing.
