Universal City is a one square mile island of unincorporated
Los Angeles County, surrounded by the City of Los Angeles.
It contains an entertainment theme park (Universal Studios-Hollywood),
a complete motion picture and television production studio
complex, a six thousand five hundred seat Amphitheater (Universal
Amphitheater), an eighteen screen cinema (Universal Studios
Cinemas), and a large restaurant and shopping district theme
mall (CityWalk). The average daily population is approximately
fifty thousand. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department
provides law enforcement services to Universal City from a
Sub-Station located within the CityWalk Theme Mall.
The Sub Station was established in the summer of 1991. Before
1991 all calls for service were handled by West Hollywood
city units being dispatched to Universal. From the summer
of 1991 to the summer of 1993 the Sub Station was operated
out of a trailer located in the parking lot of the studio
tour. When the theme mall opened, the station was moved to
its permanent location on the CityWalk. Staffing for the sub
station consists of 1-Lieutenant, 2-Sergeants, 1-Detective,
1-Team leader, 12 Deputies and is manned 24 hours a day by
Deputy and Security personnel.
