The Irvine Police Department
Irvine Police Department History
When the City of Irvine was first incorporated on December 28, 1971, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department provided the City’s police services during the first year. In September 1972, Irvine contracted with the City of Costa Mesa to provide the City’s policing services for the next three years.
Not until July 1, 1975, the Irvine Police Department was formed. The new Department responded to 64,019 calls for service in its first year while serving the 39,651 residents of Irvine community. The first Irvine Police Department station was housed in a portable trailer right next to the newly formed University of California Irvine.
The 24 vehicles of the Irvine Police Department are distinguishable by their distinctive green and blue racing stripes over the top of the white cars. The cars were meant to provide easy visibility to the public while preserving the City’s official colors.
