OXNARD POLICE DEPARTMENT
DETAILS: In keeping with the Chief of Police’s message, “Working toward a Safer, Stronger Community,” the Oxnard Police Department has established a hotline phone number that residents and community members can use to call and report gang activity or persons who are illegally in possession of firearms.
The hotline was established so persons with information about gang activity, including gang assaults or other gang related crimes, can call and report that specific information to police investigators. The hotline is also available so citizens can call to report on individuals that are illegally in possession firearms. A person can illegally possess a firearm as the result of a specific criminal conviction, such as assault with a deadly weapon, witness intimidation, or making criminal threats. A person can become prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm due to a valid restraining order against them, terms of their probation or parole, or their mental health status.
The goal of the hotline is to obtain information from the community that can assist investigators in solving violent crimes, but more importantly, to remove guns from prohibited persons before they can be used to commit additional crimes.
Community members that call the hotline, (805) 982-7043, can remain anonymous or leave their contact information and an investigator will call them back.
