The San Marino Police Department has announced a new email program that will assist the Police Department in communicating more regularly with the community. This new email program, known as the Communicating Law Enforcement Alerts to Residents (CLEAR) Program seeks to release timely information, increase the partnership between the community and the police, and assist detectives in solving criminal cases.


Participation in the program is voluntary and persons are free to have their email address removed from the distribution list at any time. Additionally, all emails would only contain a single email address to prevent the unauthorized use of the list or unwanted email.
Sign Up
The CLEAR program is open to all persons who reside, work, or own a business in the City of San Marino. To sign up for the program, complete the online form; your registration information will be submitted to a Police Department staff member, call the Investigation and Support Services Division at 626-300-0720, or visit the Police Department lobby to fill out a card at:
2200 Huntington Drive
San Marino, CA 91108
Any questions about the program can be directed to Dispatcher Christina Curtis.

Information Released

A representative of the Police Department will send periodic emails to participants. The emails may include press releases, crime bulletins, certain wanted posters, recent crime trends, and crime prevention techniques.

The emails will be exclusively informational in nature and participants will never receive advertisements or solicitations.


The list of email addresses are confidential and will not be distributed for commercial purposes. The Police Department is not exempt from federal and state laws relating to public records disclosure.

NIXLEAs part of an effort to provide timely information to residents about crime and safety matters, SMPD uses NIXLE.  This is technology that communicates with groups/residents, via cell phone text messages. Residents can sign up by sending a text to 888777 and in the text of that message typing in sanmarinopd.
