The December Coffee with the Captains will be held at Starbucks on Myrtle from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Come join your neighbors and EPD Captains for coffee and conversation. No agenda or speeches. This is your opportunity to ask questions, voice concerns, and get to know us better. Thank you Starbucks for hosting this event!

The November Coffee with the Captains is going to be held during the Henderson Center Holiday Open House. Shafer's Ace Hardware will be hosting Captain Stephens and Captain O'Neill. Stop by and say hello!

Crime Free Business Training is happening now! I just got word there are a few empty seats. If you're interested, head down to the Humboldt Bay Fire classroom at 3030 L Street now!

The Eureka Police Department has partnered with Phoenix Group Information Systems to modernize parking enforcement ticket and payment processing for the City of Eureka. In addition to replacing an outdated database with a web-based solution, citizens are now able to pay and contest parking tickets believed to be issued in error on a secured website. Citizens can access the City of Eureka Parking Enforcement website at or through a link on the Eureka Police Department website. Failure to pay parking tickets under the new system will result in vehicle registration being withheld with the Department of Motor Vehicles rather than being sent to a third party debt collector. Individuals with outstanding parking fees are encouraged to contact Eureka Police Department Parking Enforcement at 707-441-4073. Payments are also accepted in person at Eureka Police Department, 604 C St. during office hours, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, excluding holidays.

November 7th, 2017 was proclaimed by the California Law Enforcement Association of Records Supervisors as Law Enforcement Records and Support Personnel Day. Our Records unit was recognized by City Council last night for their dedicated work and service to the Eureka Police Department through a proclamation read aloud. On hand to receive the acknowledgement and proclamation were Records Manager Amanda O’Neill and Records Specialists Erin McBride and Juan Ramirez. A BIG thank you to our Records staff for all they do!

The Crime Free Business Training is this Thursday, November 9th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The training is intended for business owners and managers but there is room for a few others that don't fit that title. This training is free to attend but registration is mandatory. Contact Suzie Owsley to register at (707) 441-4371.

Thank you to The Jefferson Project for hosting and preparing a wonderful meal for our first responders!

Our officers are ready to partake in the Halloween festivities!

We love seeing posts from community members. Thanks for sharing!

A couple of us on our day off spent the morning with the POP team and a crew from Humboldt Bay Fire cleaning up Halvorsen Park.

Update: The man pictured below has been identified. The Eureka Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance to identify the pictured subject for questioning in a suspicious circumstances event that occurred on October 17, 2017. Contact Officer Soltow if you have any information. or (707) 441-4060. Refer case #17008438.

Congratulations Chief!

Next EPD convoy of supplies headed south to Root 101 Nursery! Two trucks and the Chief's car full of donations. Thank you everyone!!

Some of our very own that are down helping emergency crews.

Eureka resident Judith Rantasuo made quilts, pillows, scarves and baby blankets to send to fire victims. Thank you Judith!

Many people have inquired about financial donations for fire victims. The County of Sonoma posted on their Facebook page the following information: For financial donations, the Redwood Credit Union has established a North Bay Relief Fund - 100 percent of donations go to fire victims. Go to to donate. Thank you again to all of the community members that stopped by yesterday to drop off donations!

In under 24 hours our trailer was full and donations were overflowing through our parking lot. The people of Humboldt County are so giving and generous. Thank you! We had a community member stop by and notice we were totally full. He filled up his truck without question and drove a load down. Pay it Forward Humboldt stepped up with help from Root 101 Nursery and loaded up all of our overflow. Mission Linen was also on standby to help if needed. 4 officers arrived in Ukiah early this morning and 4 more will arrive with our trailer soon. They will be working 12 hour shifts assisting with looting patrol, road closures, and evacuations.

We had some pretty awesome donations come in today! Thank you to all of you! Wild Souls Ranch came together and brought hay, feed, rakes, buckets, and more! Albee and Buck brought boxes of non-perishable food. Our trailer will be open tomorrow 9 a.m. to noon before our team takes off for Mendocino. Thank you Humboldt County!

UPDATE! The trailer is full plus some! Thank you so much for your generosity!! Eureka Police will be sending officers to Mendocino County tomorrow to assist in keeping their communities safe during the fires. We have a large trailer available to take over donations. We will be accepting donations at EPD, 604 C Street, today (Wednesday) until 5 p.m. and tomorrow from 9 a.m. to noon.
