For Law Enforcement

California Government Code 53075.5 requires all cities and counties to regulate taxicabs within their respective jurisdictions to protect the public health, safety and welfare of its citizens; by adopting an ordinance or resolution in regard to taxicab transportation service rendered in vehicles designed for carrying not more than eight persons, excluding the driver. In Orange County, OCTAP Regulations have been adopted by all member agencies; and enforcement of OCTAP Regulations is performed by law enforcement and safety officers assigned to their respective jurisdictions.

OCTAP staff performs administrative (regulatory) duties on behalf of all member agencies. OCTAP staff also performs administrative enforcement through onsite and field random inspections, observations, and contacts.

Part of the OCTAP scope of administrative responsibilities is to offer training to law enforcement agencies and safety officers. On-site enforcement training is available upon request, to assist Orange County law enforcement agencies with enforcement of the OCTAP regulations.

Your interest and participation in the OCTAP mission is vital to our success and the interest of public safety and welfare. Resources are also available that can be used for enforcement training purposes.

To schedule enforcement training or to request resources, please contact the OCTAP office:
