Police Department

In July, 2010, the law enforcement responsibilities of the Trinidad Police Department were transferred to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office via a contract with the County Board of Supervisors.  A full-time deputy is assigned to Trinidad, and roving patrols are provided by the Sheriff at times when the deputies are not on duty. Deputy Luke Matheison is assigned to Trinidad.   Emergency situations should still be handled by a call to 911 Emergency Services. Please refer non-emergency issues to the Humboldt County Sheriff dispatch at 707-445-7251.
