Code Enforcement's purpose is to improve Santa Ana neighborhoods through fair and innovative enforcement of laws, education of codes and standards, interpersonal neighborhood contact, and with a responsive and dedicated team.
The Code Enforcement Division operates a comprehensive enforcement program and investigates violations of the State Health & Safety Code; General Property Maintenance and the State Structural Codes (Building, Plumbing, Mechanical and Electrical Codes). The Division employs abatement procedures to correct code deficiencies. It is our goal to obtain voluntary compliance from the property and business owners we work with. In the case where we are unable to obtain voluntary compliance, Code Enforcement Officers have the authority to issue civil citations and/or file criminal charges.
