Imperial County is located on the international border with Mexico and has three international ports of entry. There are two ports of entry located in Calexico, and the third port is at Andrade in eastern Imperial County. Through these three ports travel over 35 million people and over 250,000 cargo trucks each year.
Ensuring public safety in this vast and diverse area requires highly trained and dedicated law enforcement professionals. The Imperial County Sheriff's Department is today a professional, forward thinking law enforcement agency that is continuing in the tradition established by the County’s first Sheriff Mobley Meadows.
