The Fallbrook Substation serves a population of over 52,000 people in the North County unincorporated communities of Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow, and De Luz. This sprawling 137 square mile command is patrolled by the Department’s largest substation which provides a wide variety of public safety services to the community including patrol, Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving (COPPS), gang enforcement, investigations, and more.
Situated on the east side of Camp Pendleton, Fallbrook is home to a large military and veteran population. Outside of the core downtown area the semi-rural character of Fallbrook dominates with rolling hills, avocado and citrus groves, nurseries, and strawberry fields. Residents of Fallbrook and its surrounding communities identify strongly with the small-town image and are committed to helping to preserve its “Friendly Village” atmosphere. Residents can become involved in many community-oriented activities, groups and projects to help prevent crime. The substation is committed to a continuous partnership with the community to keep the area a safe place for families and business.
