Central Coast Chapter

Despite our size, the Central Coast Chapter stands as a testament to the adage “small yet mighty.” Encompassing only three counties—San Luis Obispo, Ventura, and Santa Barbara—we pride ourselves on the strength that emanates from our close-knit community. Within this limited geographic scope, our chapter thrives as a powerhouse, representing District Attorney Offices, City Police Departments, and Sheriff’s Departments. The inclusivity of state agencies such as Cal Poly State University Police Department, Atascadero State Hospital Police, and the California State Parks further amplifies our impact. Serving over 1.5 million residents and an influx of visitors to the region, our collective reach extends far beyond our modest boundaries. In the face of our compact size, the Central Coast Chapter emerges as a force, making a significant impact on the safety and well-being of our communities.

Being a member comes with a host of benefits that extend beyond mere affiliation. At our organization, we believe in fostering continuous growth and professional development. As a member, you gain exclusive access to a wealth of training opportunities throughout the year, tailored to enhance your skills and keep you abreast of the latest industry trends. These training sessions are thoughtfully designed to empower you with the knowledge and expertise necessary for navigating the dynamic landscape of our field. In addition to honing your skills, membership offers the invaluable advantage of ongoing networking. Connect with like-minded professionals, share experiences, and build relationships that extend far beyond the confines of our events. The collaborative atmosphere cultivated within our community not only strengthens your professional network but also enriches your overall experience as a member. Join us and experience what the “small yet mighty” Central Coast Chapter has to offer!
