The City of National City and the National City Police Department recognize the positive impact the business community has on our City and thus has created a Business Liaison Program. The focus of this program is to enhance the partnership with City Government and the Business Community, to resolve conflict and quality of life issues affecting the business community in National City.
The program is comprised of four police officers and a supervisor from the Community Services Division. The duties of the officers assigned to the Business Liaison Program are collateral to their regular duties. Officers assignned to the Business Liaison Program are an additional resource to help businesses address issues of a chronic nature, such as illegal dumping, graffiti, loitering, prostitution, homelessness, building and street issues, as well as making recommendations for security enhancements in and around businesses. The officers in the Business Liaison Program work hand-in-hand with community businesses and business groups such as the National City Chamber of Commerce, Mile of Cars Association, Westfield Plaza Bonita Shopping Center, Morgan Square District, Highand Avenue Business Association, and others. National City patrol officers will continue to provide routine patrol and handling of calls for service.
National City Mayor Ron Morrison stated, “As a City Government, we are committed to using all the resources available to make National City the shopping and dining destination for our region.”
Business Liaison Officers can be contacted through the Police Department’s Community Services supervisor – Sergeant Mike Harlan at (619) 336-4423 or Mharlan@nationalcityca.gov.
