Carmel Police Station Tour – March 29, 2024

The City will host guided tours of the Carmel-by-the-Sea and Salinas Police Stations on March 29, 2024.  The tour will begin in Carmel and go from 9:30 am to Noon with small waves of tour groups.  Following the tour of Carmel, tours will be given of the Salinas Police Department starting at 1:30 pm in the same format.  

The purpose of these tours is to provide an opportunity for interested members of the public to observe portions of the Carmel Police Building from the inside.  The goal is for the public to gain an understanding of operational issues that need to be addressed through the Police Building Project which is currently underway, led by a City Ad Hoc Committee comprised of Mayor Potter and Councilmember Baron.   


To protect the security and safety of the Police Building operations, the tour will only be available those who successfully complete a records check*.  The Carmel Police Department will conduct these records checks for free.  In order to obtain a mandatory records check, a form must be submitted by 5:00 pm on Friday, March 15th. Click HERE to complete the form. In the interest of security, photos, videos or audio recordings will not be allowed on the tour.

*All information collected via this form or through the records check process will be kept strictly confidential
