Welcome to the City of Los Angeles, Department of General Services, Office of Public Safety (OPS) official web site. We appreciate your visit to our site and encourage you to explore our web pages to learn more about how we serve the
great City of Los Angeles.

OPS subscribes to the Community Oriented Policing Philosophy (COPPS). With the involvement of City Employees and the Community, we take an active role in identifying, reducing, eliminating and preventing problems that impact the safety and order of our City facilities.

As one of the fastest growing police departments in the state of California, General Services Police Officers are dedicated exclusively to patrolling all of the City’s 400 parks, including the famed Griffith Park and Hollywood sign, Elysian Park (home of the L.A. Dodgers), Hansen and Sepulveda Dams, Venice and Cabrillo Beaches. Assigned Security Officers are dedicated to the protection of the City’s 75 libraries, Zoo and Convention Center, Bureau of Sanitation plants, their staff and visitors. Safety at all City facilities is our priority, and we strive to insure a positive experience while visiting these City facilities.
