Problem Oriented Policing Unit PhotoRCPD and the City of Rancho Cordova Code Enforcement Division are partnering to take a proactive approach to identify and halt illegal marijuana grows in the City of Rancho Cordova.

We are able to identify these illegal marijuana grows in the City through community tips and investigations.

According to the Rancho Cordova Municipal Code, the City can levy penalties for illegal marijuana grows. All locations that were illegally growing marijuana had building and safety violations. Penalties have been assessed, as appropriate, against violating property owners. These locations were cited as uninhabitable (red-tagged).

We need you to continue to be our eyes in our community to help stop illegal marijuana grows. You may be able to identify an illegal marijuana grow in your neighborhood if you smell marijuana and see a house with people coming and going at night, windows that are boarded, and an unkempt yard.

If you think there may be an illegal marijuana grow in your neighborhood, please contact your Problem Oriented Policing (POP) Officer and Neighborhood Officer using this map, or through Fresh Connect, the City’s online reporting system, at
