Community Relations Officer Marcelle Herrera 

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 Watchthe Disaster District Program (DDP), and PVE-CARES Senior Program by conducting meetings, coordinate 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. And withPVE-CARES senior residents of PVE can connect with police and the community with special events, senior registry and much more.


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.
