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 and a part-time deputy are assigned to Trinidad, and roving patrols are provided by the Sheriff at times when the deputies are not on duty. Emergency situations should still be handled by a call to 911 Emergency Services.
Deputies Luke Matheison and Nate Cumbow are assigned to Trinidad. They can be reached at the old location of the Trinidad Police Department at 463 Trinity Street. Their hours vary. The phone number to call that office is 707-677-0133. When unable to reach the deputy desk please refer non-emergency issues to the Humboldt County Sheriff dispatch at 707-445-7251.
