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.
