Police Department

In July, 2010, the law enforcement responsibilities of the Trinidad Police Department were transferred to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office via a contract with the County Board of Supervisors. Trinidad receives 24/7 coverage by roving patrols provided by the Sheriff. Emergency situations should still be handled by a call to 911 Emergency Services. Please refer non-emergency issues to the Humboldt County Sheriff dispatch at 707-445-7251. It is important to report crimes or law enforcement issues through this line. Priorities are shaped by statistics tracked through their system.
