In 2020, there was a 107% increase in anti-Asian hate crimes in California, and thousands of reported incidents nationwide as a result of racist and xenophobic rhetoric. 

With the federal government’s recent public release reporting on the origins of COVID-19, the Broadmoor Police Department would like to take a moment to remind our community that hate crimes and incidents will not be tolerated. 

We are committed to ensuring our community feels safe and protected against all hate and bigotry. If you or someone you know has been a victim of a hate crime, contact the police immediately!

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.

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.
