SAN DIEGO, California -- A common complaint among North Park residents is that the neighborhood is split between two police divisions, and some folks during a time of need are confused about which station to call.
Do you phone the Western Division or the Mid Cities Division for help during a non-emergency?
The issue plays out frequently on community-oriented apps such as Nextdoor.
In response to these safety concerns, the North Park Planning Committee voted unanimously on Sept. 15 to request that the San Diego Police Department place the Greater North Park area entirely within the Mid Cities Division.
The committee is an official advisory board to the city, which defines Greater North Park as a wide area that includes Burlingame to the south and University Heights east from Park Boulevard.
