Changes to Street Sweeping Service

Effective March 1, 2019, Brea's Street Sweeping schedule will change from weekly to twice per month.  The change was made in order to manage the cost of providing the service, which has been subsidized for a number of years. The revenue received from the fees charged has not cover the cost of the service. This modification brings the cost of providing this service closer to the fees charged. 

Street sweeping in your area will be either the first and third week of the month, or the second and fourth week of the month. Street signs are scheduled to be posted by February 22, 2019 indicating your assigned weeks. View a map showing the street sweeping schedule for your neighborhood at

Additionally, the Brea City Council has suspended parking enforcement for Brea's Street Sweeping Program for an approximately one-year evaluation period effective immediately. Drivers will no longer be cited for parking on the streets during Street Sweeper Operation. However, residents are still encouraged to park vehicles off the streets on designated sweeping days for proper street cleaning.

Text-to-911 Service Launched in OC

Now you can text emergencies to 911 in Brea and throughout Orange County using your cell phone.  Enter 911 as the destination address in the text message followed by your location and a brief description of the emergency. While dispatchers will have a geolocation from your cell phone, they will not have your exact address, so provide specific location information whenever possible.

Brea Police Dispatch will be able transfer text messages to all Orange County Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), including Orange County Fire Authority, Metro Net Fire and some surrounding counties.  The dispatcher will also be able to monitor the text conversation to ensure the correct jurisdiction/agency has been reached and that there is no information pertinent to the dispatcher’s own agency. 

Text-to-911 provides equal access to emergency services for the hearing and speech impaired community, as well as an alternate method of reporting emergencies when traditional avenues are unavailable.  It is not available in all areas and while roaming.

It is important to note that calling 911 and talking to a dispatcher is still the most efficient way to report an emergency.  Only use Text-to-911 in those instances when you cannot call.
