Our History

The Stallion Springs Police Department began serving the Stallion Springs community in 1970. In 1972, the department became California Peace Officer's Standards and Training (POST) certified. From 1970 until 2011, the officers station was an 1800's era ranch house with a root cellar. In 2011 the residents voted to pass a bond measure to construct a new police station. The department has 3 full-time police officers and 2 part-time police officers. The chief of police is counted as one of the full-time officers as he is a working chief. The department is dispatched through the Kern County Sheriffs Office. SSPD relies heavily on citizen volunteerism which includes the Community Services Unit, Community Emergency Response Team and Neighborhood Watch.
