Community Relations


mcculloughCommunity Relations Officer Marcelle McCullough 

As the Community Relations Officer for the Palos Verdes Estates Police Department I am proud to be serving such a wonderful community.

Working under the direction of the Chief of Police, the Community Relations Officer (CRO), functions as the liaison between the Police Department and the local community to serve the City's residents regarding crime awareness, crime prevention, emergency preparedness, and other community related issues.

The Community Relations Officer overseas several programs such as Neighborhood Watch and the Disaster District Program (DDP), by conducting meetings, coordinating trainings, and being a resource of information to organizations and citizen’s groups to ensure a safer and better prepared community.


But it’s you, the resident that truly make these programs a success. In supporting residents who participate in Neighborhood Watch we strive to heighten awareness of the community's responsibility to help in crime prevention. With the Disaster District Program (DDP) we provide training in disaster preparedness and support regional programs such as the Palos Verdes Peninsula Community Emergency Response Training (PVPCERT) which teaches citizens disaster preparedness, response and recovery.


I am committed to faithfully serving the City of Palos Verdes Estates in my role as Community Relations Officer and I share the vision of the original founders of Palos Verdes Estates in “preserving, protecting and enhancing the quality of life and natural assets that make Palos Verdes Estates unique”.


Please let me know how I can assist you.
