The mission of the Broadmoor Police Protection district is to serve our community with 24 hour a day police services.
In 1948 the residents of the unincorporated hamlet of Broadmoor, which then was larger than the City of Daly City and extended from about Westlake to South San Francisco, was comprised mostly of farm lands, came together and formed their own police department as a police protection district because services from the San Mateo County Sheriff were not sufficient to meet the needs of the residents. In particular, the Sheriff’s Office was located in Redwood City, where it is still located, some 20 miles south of Broadmoor.
The unincorporated town of Broadmoor boasts the only active police protection district remaining in the State of California.
The Broadmoor Police Protection District is a Police Commission of three residents elected at large by the voters of the district.
