The California Highway Patrol Humboldt Area is proud to serve the northern Humboldt County region providing safety, service, and security to thousands of residents, commuters, and tourists each day. As part of the CHP’s Northern Division, our office patrols US 101, State Route 36, State Route 299, as well as hundreds of miles of unincorporated county roadways and serves 134,000 residents of Humboldt County.
Our Willow Creek Resident Post provides service and quick response to the rural communities of Willow Creek, Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation, and surrounding areas that include State route 96 and State Route 169. We offer a number of programs aimed at keeping you safe on the road and on the highway.
Contact our office for information on how to safely buckle kids in their safety seats, teach new drivers the challenges of the road, or learn some tips for driving at night, in bad weather, and in high volume traffic. You can help us by driving defensively and safely, obeying the posted speed, giving enough room between you and the car ahead of you, using your turn indicators, and being courteous on the road.
