Existing P6 Areas in Unincorporated Contra Costa County
In 1983, the County Board of Supervisors passed Board Resolution # 83-835 initiating the formation of a countywide P District (Police Services Area) to provide an enhanced level of police services over all the county. The LAFCO (Local Area Formation Commission) commission has to approve the formation of all county service areas (CSA's). Since LAFCO approved this countywide, you have been paying to fund this P District!
In Nov. 2008, the Board of Supervisors sponsored Measure F, to form a Police Services area in the N. Arlington and E. Richmond Hts. area to fund enhanced police protection. See voter information pamphlet for Measure F. Voters in this area were opposed to this measure and wisely voted it down saving themselves $106.00/yr for a single family home.
