Attention Montclair Community

Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code. This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.


In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.


On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.

About Us

The Montclair Police Department is a municipal law enforcement agency responsible for the delivery of a full range of law enforcement services. The Police Department was first established in 1956 with a sworn force of six officers, operating out of a 17' x 8' office. Our service area has grown from 4.2 square miles, serving a community of 8,008 residents to what is now a 5.5 square-mile community of roughly 37,000 residents. The Department has evolved into a community-oriented organization employing 60 sworn officers today.

Aside from uniform patrol, the Department offers specialized assignments such as Detective Bureau, Narcotics Investigations Task Force, Motor Officer Program, Technical Services, Volunteer Services Coordinator/Red Light Enforcement Officer, Plaza Precinct Patrol, School Resource Officer, and Safe School Zone Officer. In addition to our sworn force, the Department employs 50 full and part-time civilian support personnel and 18 volunteers, including 15 reserve officers and 3 chaplains. We are currently in the process of recruiting additional volunteers for our Volunteers In Policing and Reserve Officer Programs. Our organizational structure, lead by the Chief of Police, is comprised of three divisions: Administrative, Support Services, and Field Services. Our Administrative Division provides support, general management and direction in all department operations, from planning and personnel administration to community relations. Our Support Services Division is divided into specialized units such as Investigations, Evidence, Technical Services, Records, and Volunteer Services. Finally, the Field Services Division is responsible for patrol operations, including Narcotics Enforcement, Uniform Patrol, Plaza Patrol, Traffic Enforcement, Field Training Program, Crime Suppression Unit (CSU), and School Resource Officers. This division also includes our Communications (Dispatch) Division.
