North County Precinct (1st)

Captain Tim Cunningham, Commander


On behalf of all the men and women of the North County Precinct, I welcome you to our website.

The North County Precinct is a dynamic, full-service police precinct comprised of over 100 police officers and civilian staff. Each of our employees is dedicated to making a positive difference in our community. 

The success of law enforcement efforts in any community depends largely upon citizen interest and participation.  Community partnership recognizes the value of bringing people back into the policing process with the priority of making North County a safer community.

Working with community stakeholders to assist me, we are making strides in developing strategies that will not only curtail criminal activity but improve upon quality of life issues affecting our community members.

I also fully support our endeavor, as we are all focused on keeping our children safe in their learning environments. We are continually working with our school districts, where I have officers assigned as School Resource Officers, to build upon their ever changing roles in the protection of your children.  Our children’s’ safety is of paramount importance.

I encourage you to explore our website to learn about the many services and programs the police department provides.
