Regional Contract Law Committee


  • 8 a.m., immediately following the Peninsula Public Safety Committee Meeting at 7:30 a.m.
  • 2nd Thursday in February, May, August, and November, unless re-scheduled by mutual agreement

The meetings are open to the public. At the meetings, the RCLC reviews crime statistics and trends, law enforcement programs, and the contract budget.

Through the Peninsula Regional Law Enforcement Agreement, first established in 1980, the Cities of Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, and Rolling Hills Estates share municipal law enforcement services provided by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. This arrangement is particularly suited to the region due to the similar development patterns (predominating low-density single-family residential), shared geography, and intertwined municipal boundaries.

Performance Review

The performance of the Lomita Sheriff’s Station in the region is reviewed on a quarterly basis by the Regional Contract Law Committee (RCLC). The RCLC consists of 2 Council members appointed from each city, as well as staff support from each city. In addition, the Committee considers several performance measures in evaluating the quality and effectiveness of the Sheriff Department’s service. For Rancho Palos Verdes, the Deputy City Manager serves as the City’s liaison to the Sheriff’s Department and coordinates with the other cities to support the RCLC.
