Clear Program
The San Marino Police Department has 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.

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 and your registration information will be submitted to a Police Department staff member. 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. 

Any questions about the program can be directed to Dispatcher Christina Curtis.
