Your local Huntington Beach Police Officers work day and night to keep us safe. Unfortunately, Police Chief Rob Handy and some at City Hall have failed us.

With crime on the rise and our morale, recruitment and retention so low, our officers’ are increasingly unable to perform their duties. The Huntington Beach Police Officers’ Association voted with 92% support on a “vote of no confidence” in current Police Chief Rob Handy. Public safety needs to be the #1 issue in Huntington Beach. It’s time to put an end to years of increased crime, decreased service, and poor management.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please fight to Protect Huntington Beach and move us forward. Together, we can work to return Huntington Beach to be the very best place to live, work, visit and raise a family.

Please get involved today!

Dear Huntington Beach Voters,

We love our city yet Huntington Beach can be an even better place to call home, work, raise your family and visit. The Huntington Beach Police Officers’ Association is always working in the community and now speaking out to protect the public and return it to a place much better than ever. We must make our police and your businesses, families and resident’s safety the #1 priority.
We believe it is our duty to not only protect our community and make it as strong and safe as possible but to speak out when it is not. When recruitment, retention, our being able to best tackle gangs, thefts, rising crime and worse is in jeopardy we will notify you to alert City Council and let them know. As part of our newly enhanced community outreach efforts and issue updates, we’d like to keep you up to date on critical matters affecting law enforcement in our community starting now. We are very concerned. It has been getting worse the past few years.

Thank you for your consideration and for helping us return Huntington Beach to not just before but make it the best it can be!
