Welcome to the Fresno Police Department where you will find a team of dedicated public servants who care about the Fresno community and strive to serve with compassion, honesty and respect.
The primary goal of the Fresno Police Department is to prevent crime and reduce traffic collisions through high visibility patrols and proactive enforcement efforts. When incidents do occur, the Department conducts investigations, identifies trends, and deploys resources as needed to ensure public safety. Each division within the Department is committed to the values of safety, service and trust. We are a nationally accredited law enforcement agency that prides itself on delivering the highest level of professional service to our community.
A Foundation of Community Involvement
The Fresno Police Department strongly values its community partnerships, which include programs such as Crime Stoppers, “Bringing Broken Neighborhoods Back to Life,” Neighborhood Watch, Police Activities League, Citizens On Patrol, our Citizens Police Academies, Chief’s Advisory Board and the Mayor’s Gang Prevention Initiative.
We recognize that people make the difference in any organization. We are committed to recruiting the most qualified personnel and providing them with the best training and equipment possible, while creating an atmosphere that allows them to excel. Thanks in large part to the outstanding efforts of the men and women of the Fresno Police Department, the City of Fresno has experienced a 32 percent decrease in violent crime since 2001.
