City of Torrance

We are a balanced, full-service city of 21 square miles, with 13 departments to serve a residential population of 147,000. The Torrance community prides itself on its quality of life in the areas of public safety, schools, hospitals, community services, and transportation. These are the very reasons that many people find themselves wanting to live, work and play in a community we coin as "a City with a Hometown feel".
