New ‘mobile police station’ enhances community access to SacPD

The Sacramento Police Department will operate its first “mobile police station” Saturday, April 29, at the Oak Park Community Center (3425 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.).

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., SacPD will bring services directly to the community by setting up space at the community center or in its mobile command vehicle.

At the mobile police station, people can:

  • Get tickets signed off
  • File a report
  • Get a new court date for an infraction
  • Talk to a Sac PD recruiter

“For people who work during the week and can’t get to the stations or would need to take time off work to do so, we hope that this provides a good option for them,” said Officer Chad Lewis.

Based on the mobile library concept, the mobile police station is a pilot program designed to enhance community access to the Sacramento Police Department.

SacPD plans to stage these mobile police stations at various locations throughout Sacramento in the coming weeks, Lewis said.

“If these mobile stations prove to be useful to the public, we could definitely see them becoming a regular occurrence throughout Sacramento,” he said.
