Police Department


Welcome to the South Lake Tahoe Police website. On behalf of the men and women of the police department we express our appreciation for the opportunity to serve South Lake Tahoe community members and visitors alike.


The South Lake Tahoe Police Department is a full service police department which strives to make your experience at South Lake Tahoe safe and crime free. In a typical month, we respond to about 2,350 calls for service. As you might expect, our workload rises dramatically during holiday weekends and during peak tourist seasons.


We welcome your ideas for improvements, comments about the services provided, or feedback about your personal experiences with the department. If you have a question or comment, please email the Police Department.
