Message from the Chief


 Chief Hahn  
 Chief Daniel Hahn's Video Message

"All of us at the Sacramento Police Department would like to express our thanks to the community for the support that has been extended to our organization this past year.  Building partnerships with businesses, residents, visitors and friends have proven to be key to solving challenging issues and preventing crime in our city.

I hope this holiday season you take time with your families to enjoy some of the great events going on that showcase our city.  This is a time to be thankful for the blessings that we are given and recognize the ones we love so much.

I ask that you take a moment to remember the dedicated men and women who will be away from their families during the holidays to ensure the safety of our community.  Their service is a demonstration of excellence.  On behalf of the Sacramento Police Department, we wish you a wonderful holiday season!"   Chief Hahn
