The Carpinteria Station, located in the southernmost area of Santa Barbara County, provides law enforcement to the unincorporated county areas of Montecito, Summerland, Carpinteria Valley and to the City of Carpinteria.

As the public safety first responders, Sheriff’s deputies are responsible for law enforcement, investigations and crime prevention. We are proud to help protect this beautiful coastal community which is valued not only by the residents lucky to call this area home, but also to the many visitors that are drawn to its small town charm.
