Ventura County Sheriff’s Office

Ventura County is located on California's "Gold Coast," approximately 35 miles northwest of Los Angeles and 20 miles southeast of Santa Barbara.  Residents enjoy rolling hills and sweeping ocean views in a nearly perfect Mediterranean climate with an average annual temperature of 74.2 degrees.  The beauty and weather combined with a wonderful quality of life are among the many reasons our residents choose to call Ventura County "home." 


Men and women diverse in skills but unified in purpose. This is the essence of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. Our commitment to the security and safety of Ventura County residents is steadfast, and permeates our department strategy.
