Off-Road Detail

The LAPD’s Off-Road Detail (ORD) routinely patrols the 221.8 miles of rugged and rural terrain that surrounds much of the San Fernando Valley. ORD traverses daily through the mountainous roads and dense brush to respond to missing person cases, graffiti taggers, prostitution, illegal driving of off–road vehicles, and homeless encampments that pose a great risk to the area during fire season. With the ability to go where no patrol cruiser can go, the ORD makes the city’s trails safe for hikers, cyclists and horseback riders.
