About Us

Avalon Sheriff's Station provides law enforcement for Santa Catalina Island, San Clemente Island, and the ocean waters between the islands and mainland of Southern California. The personnel roster of the station consists of a Station Commander; three sergeants, one of whom serves as Operations Officer, while the other two serve as Watch Commanders; and nine deputy sheriffs. These personnel are augmented by reserve deputies during the busiest holiday seasons and on summer weekends. The civilian roster is comprised of ten employees - a supervising clerk, who acts as station secretary; six law enforcement technicians (LET's), who act as dispatchers; and a community service officer.

Catalina Island has a population of approximately 5,500 full-time residents, 5,000 of which live in the 2.6-square-mile City of Avalon. The total population can reach as high as 20,000 on a major holiday, while 10,000-15,000 is common for most weekends between May and November. Avalon averages over a million visitors annually.
