Welcome to the Sacramento Police Department’s web page. I am excited about serving as Sacramento's Interim Chief of Police. Sacramento is my home. My wife, Tami, and I have raised our two children in this wonderful city. For the past 36 years, I have proudly dedicated my career to the people of Sacramento.
For over two decades our agency has been committed to the philosophy and principles of Community Policing. This philosophy is part of our organizational culture and will continue to guide us into the future. While our agency continues to rebuild staffing levels and evolve, we will focus on four priorities:
- Transparency – to build public trust and ensure police accountability so our citizens will have confidence in their Police Department;
- Community Engagement – to work with all segments of the community, especially the youth, to make Sacramento safer;
- Diversity – to have a Department that is representative of the community we serve;
- Morale of the Organization – to value our people and provide the best possible training, resources and leadership.
I believe our Department employs the finest law enforcement professionals in the nation. We commit to providing quality, fair and objective service to the citizens of Sacramento. However, if you believe the service you have received does not meet your expectations, please email us your suggestions on how we can better serve you.
We need your help to be successful in protecting our community. Report crime and suspicious activity, be involved in community organizations, volunteer, and be a good neighbor. We cannot do it alone!
