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.
