CHP - Golden Gate Division

CHP - Golden Gate Division serves as the CHP Command Center for the nine Bay Area counties, providing the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security to ...over 7 million people. Our division is comprised of twelve Area Offices, three Commercial Vehicle Inspection Facilities, one Communications Center, and an Air Operations unit. Each Golden Gate Division Area office and inspection facility was strategically placed to provide the best and most efficient service from the dedicated members of the CHP.
The California Highway Patrol is the primary law enforcement agency for the freeways and highways of the State of California. In addition, the CHP is also responsible for all State-owned facilities and properties. The CHP also provides traffic enforcement services  and general law enforcement to the many unincorporated communities of the Bay Area. CHP also provides assistance to other law enforcement agencies as needed.
Our goal is to minimize the loss of life, personal injury, and property damage resulting from traffic collisions through enforcement, education, and engineering. To enforce the provisions of the California Vehicle Code and other laws to prevent crime.
