COSTA MESA — The Costa Mesa Police Department will remain open later into the evening starting Oct. 24, the department announced Thursday.
The front desk business hours will be from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. The front desk remains closed on weekends. Hours were cut last year due to budget cuts.
The department is also reinstating civilian report writers to handle traffic collision and crime reports. The city rehired three community service specialists after they were also cut due to budget reductions.
