Message from the Chief

 Chief Daniel Hahn's Video Message

"Welcome to 2018. We at SacPD look forward to many new opportunities to provide excellent service to our community. Already this year, we were recognized and honored by many of you, on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. We were overwhelmed with the response we received from our community. Your continuous support means so much to us. 

As we start this new year, we are thrilled about the dedication of our Crump-Allen Atrium at the Public Safety Center. Officers Crump and Allen were the first female patrol officers for the Sacramento Police Department. They served this city with great pride and professionalism and we are forever thankful for their service. 

Our organization is excited to start this new year. All members of our department look forward to working together with our entire City to ensure every street, in every neighborhood, has the opportunity to thrive because, together, we are great!"   Chief Hahn
