What is the Los Angeles Police Department doing about environmental crimes and hazardous materials?
The LAPD's Hazardous Materials / Environmental Crimes Unit is a specialized unit consisting of sworn personnel of various department backgrounds and training. The Unit is headed by a supervising Sergeant and is staffed with eight Police Officer investigators.

The LAPD's Hazardous Materials/Environmental Crimes Unit has Citywide jurisdiction and conducts all investigations of environmental crimes that occur within the City of Los Angeles. The unit is also heavily involved in the enforcement of federal hazardous materials transportation regulations. Assigned personnel conduct numerous "roadside" investigations of commercial trucks to ensure compliance with the laws related to the transportation of dangerous goods.

The unit's investigators are certified instructors through the Governor's Office of Emergency Services, California Specialized Training Institute (CSTI). The unit instructs LAPD officers and civilian personnel in "Hazardous Material, First Responder Awareness." All of the classes stress the importance of safety personnel when dealing with HAZMAT incidents.

As the primary investigators of environmental crimes for the LAPD, these officers are called upon to conduct in-depth criminal investigations. They collect and preserve evidence required for successful criminal prosecutions, complete follow-up investigations, prepare reports, serve search warrants, and present investigative results to prosecuting attorneys for criminal filing.

The unit's investigators receive extensive training in the field of Hazardous Materials. All officers are trained to the Specialists level and are required to attend 27 core training courses specific to hazardous materials.

The investigators are available 24/7 and can be reached during regular business hours at the below listed phone number.  After 5 p.m., residents are urged to notify their local patrol division and advise them to call out the Hazardous Materials Environment Crimes Unit.  You can reach the Los Angeles Police Department's Hazardous Materials Environmental Crimes Unit at:
