1850 - Death Valley '49er William Robinson dies in Soledad Canyon from drinking too much cool water [story]
Leaving Death Valley


The city of Santa Clarita, the County of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department have taken the first steps toward building Santa Clarita Valley’s first new Sheriff’s Station since the 1970’s.

It has been a mutual desire of the city of Santa Clarita and County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich to work together on a plan for the financing and construction of a new and larger Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station to replace the existing station.

The current Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station, located at 23740 Magic Mountain Parkway, was completed in 1972 and is 25,100 square-feet in size. Since the time the station was built, the population of the Santa Clarita Valley has increased from approximately 50,000 to 299,000. The new station will allow deputies to effectively serve the entire valley.

On May 24, 2016, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was approved by the Santa Clarita City Council that provides joint funding by the County of Los Angeles and the city of Santa Clarita for the construction of a new, centrally-located station. On May 31, 2016, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved the MOU.

The new station will be located on city-owned property on Golden Valley Road between Centre Pointe Parkway and Robert C. Lee Parkway, where the temporary Los Angeles County Fire Station 104 is currently located. The new two-story, 44,339 square-foot Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station will include a 4,000 square-foot service garage and helipad.

The estimated cost for construction of the new station is $51 million, as follows: $38.5 million for construction, $11.5 million for design and project management, and $1 million for furniture and lockers. The County of Los Angeles will contribute $15 million to the project, and the remaining $36 million will be funded by the City of Santa Clarita. The new Sheriff’s Station will be constructed under the management of and owned by the City of Santa Clarita.

A new and larger Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station is part of the City’s Santa Clarita 2020 Community Strategic Plan. Visit SantaClarita2020.com for a complete list of projects, programs and services the city is working toward.

    Build things that are only readily accessible by automobile! Sheriff’s station, Senior Center, makes seance to me. Same rationale that makes a bus station named a transit center.

    • Sorry this isn’t Mayberry no matter where they build someone would have to drive to it. Also the deputies are out and about not waiting at the station to talk to people.

    • Mitch Bower Mitch Bower says:

      Kj Allenaka Nella Maybaerry was a small town were people could walk to the police station. Like turn of the 19th century Newhall. Here some people are encouraged to report crimes at the sheriff station when no immediate response is required. Not everyone can afford a car or Uber.

  2. Randy Rodi Randy Rodi says:

    Hey the city is actually building something other than new houses

  3. Kurt Dahlin Kurt Dahlin says:

    That’s right down the road from my house. No more speeding to get to the 14!! 🚔

  4. Kari Suarez Kari Suarez says:

  5. Gonna need to issue a lot of tickets to pay for that. Watch out everybody!

  6. Jay Salter Jay Salter says:

    Well get ready that basically means they’ll be giving out tickets and citations for anything so they can raise the money to pay for this. I mean so we can pay for this.

  7. Evan D Downs Evan D Downs says:

    Why not just update the poor excuse of a fire station on GV

  8. Kim Audet Kim Audet says:

    Curious, is this up by the Target shopping area off Golden Valley?

  9. Brings back memories. Nice they’re building a new complex. Thanks Susan.

  10. The same freaking people complaining that there is entirely to much crime in this town are the same jackasses that are complaining about a brand new police station! The next time there is a break in, a suspicious person roaming around your neighborhood, etc… Why don’t you just call a crack head to solve your problem. I’m so freaking sick and tired of seeing people complain about police officers!

  11. Tessa Lucero says:

    Near the aquatics center. There’s a fire station on the west side of Golden Valley about a half mile up from Centre Pointe, the sheriff’s station will be in the same area.
    BTW for those complaining about the location only being accessible by car, this is half a mile from the bus stops near Wal-Mart and Centre Pointe east of Golden Valley. This is reachable by bus just as the current sheriff’s station is.

  12. Scott Ferguson says:

    Since the old station of 29k sq. ft. was from 1972 with population of 50k and the new station is to be 44k sq. ft. w/ population now at 299k then wouldn’t in make sense to leave the current facility as another station or to build second station. A second station if not left in existing location would make more strategic sense and be more responsive beneficial if located in industrial center It would efficiently serve the north and west perimeters of the SCV. This includes Stevenson Ranch, Newhall Ranch(coming soon), Castaic, industrial center, upper Copper Hill areas. LAPD has 21 stations police stations serving 3.8 million people. They are central and familiar with the communities they serve and patrol. They are under served and have 1 station per each 181k of people. Using that rough minimal ratio why are we not considering at least 2 stations with the new one the headquarters. Having a new station or the existing one being left operational, the areas of city would be much better served. At what point does our valley of 330k population start behaving as the third largest city in LA county. Our area in area is even larger in area which strengthens this argument and even largerstside including the industrial center Castaic and upper Seco and Bouquet would benefit. I think it is time to seriously police this city starting with at least 2 or even a third in the Solemint Junction area. The county also owns land all around the county jail area that backs up to Tesoro. In my opinion this city is not thinking clearly and would be remiss if they don’t consider this school of thought in their Santa Clarita 2020 Community Strategic Plan.

    Ohhh so you weren’t drunk talking last time when u told me this! Lol Cesar Contreras
