Stay Connected with the Police Department

The Los Alamitos Police Department now has a variety of ways for everyone to stay up-to-date on relevant community information. Using web applications to post timely information on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Nextdoor and Nixle, information can be posted more expediently with fewer staff resources to reach and inform a broader segment of its community.

These social media tools are intended to enhance communication with the community, with a goal of strengthening police and community partnerships by creating a time efficient method for receipt of information. Followers can expect to receive "tweets", or see posts focused on crime and fraud prevention, police activity, and current community topics, as well as upcoming local meetings and special events. The Los Alamitos Police Department invites everyone who lives, works, or is involved with schools in Los Alamitos to follow our social media pages and sign up to receive Nixle alerts.
