Safety Services

Police and Fire services continue uninterrupted. Police Officers and Firefighters are prepared to respond as needed.

During this dynamic situation, the City of Ventura Police Department and Ventura City Fire Headquarters, located at 1425 Dowell Drive, will be screening individuals for illness before allowing entry.

Signs have been posted in front of the building instructing customers to use their own phone to call 805-339-4425 for Police related business; and 805-339-4300 for Fire Operations and Fire Prevention related business. If no cell phone is available, the phone on the wall can be used.

  • Front desk personnel will ask screening questions to see if the customer is ill.
  • After screening, customers who enter the lobby will be encouraged to utilize an N95 mask provided inside.
  • Any customer not allowed entry will be given more specific direction over the phone on how to address the reason for their visit.
  • All lobby surfaces will be sanitized on a regular basis.

Most information needed from our front desk can be handled online or over the phone.
