"The Broadmoor Police Protection District is the last operational police protection district in the state of California. A special property tax assessment funds the Broadmoor Police Department, which was founded in 1948 after residents grew concerned of long response times from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department -- most of whose deputies are based in the southern end of the county. Fire protection is provided by the Colma Fire Protection District. The Colma Fire Protection District provides 24 hr paramedic(ALS) coverage 365 days a year. It is staffed with one paramedic at all times. The Broadmoor Police Department is staffed by eight full time police officers, including the chief of police, and twenty-five part time police officers.

The Broadmoor Police Protection District is governed by a Police Commission, the Broadmoor Police Protection District Board of Police Commissioners, which consists of three residents elected at large every four years.

In 2007 State Senator Leland Yee (California's Eighth District) authored legislation sponsored by the Broadmoor Police Department to recognize Broadmoor as a municipal or city police department. Senate Bill 230, which was signed by Governor Schwarzenegger, provides Broadmoor Police with the same legal recognition and status of a city or municipal police department." (visit link)

I have had NO problems with taking photos of Police stations but please respect the fact that some services may be nervous about having their photo taken and inquire as to why... I have found that once things are explained they are more than happy to let me photograph the building, crest, chief... (they are people too!)
