In an effort to help protect our community from the recent COVID 19 outbreak as well as keeping our residents informed, Broadmoor Police has started a Twitter page. The Twitter feed is a relevant information portal to keep the public informed and educated about any items related to promoting a safe environment for our residents to live in. Along with our current Broadmoor Facebook page, we know that utilizing these tools gives us a larger community reach and keeps the information pipeline going to ensure the safety of our residents. I encourage anyone within our district or county to follow these feeds for critical safety announcements.  Above all please stay safe within our community.

Our Mission

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.
