Chief of Police
Welcome to the Redwood City Police Department's website. We hope that the information you find here will be helpful, and will provide you with an understanding of our department, and how it serves the residents of Redwood City.

Redwood City is a beautiful, multicultural city with excellent weather, diverse neighborhoods, and an open and customer service oriented city government. It is an outstanding place to live and work. From the Emerald Hills on the west, to the San Francisco Bay on the East, the police department strives to maintain a safe environment for everyone. Our motto is “Providing Excellent Service with Integrity and Respect”. We are a professional and progressive organization that takes great pride in providing quality service to our community.

Long acknowledged as a public safety leader in San Mateo County, the Redwood City Police Department successfully combats crime, reduces the fear of crime, and contributes to a high quality of life in our community. The department has received recognition for outstanding performance in many areas, including reducing the number of alcohol-impaired drivers on roadways, increasing traffic safety through traffic safety programs, and providing alternative programs to at-risk and economically challenged youth through the Police Activities League. Each year the California Office of Traffic Safety has awarded grant funding to our department to support automobile seatbelt safety campaigns, sobriety checkpoints, specialized traffic safety operations, alcohol-impaired driver awareness programs and bicycle safety programs for Redwood City youth. The Redwood City Police Department also works in collaboration with schools and other San Mateo County agencies to address illegal drug use and criminal and street gang violence.

It is imperative to us that our police department maintain close and ongoing police/community partnerships. We strive to inform and educate the community regarding crime and gang problems, and keep residents informed of public safety issues. You can read more about Redwood City Police Department programs by following the links on the sidebar on the left.

Thank you for visiting our web site. The men and women of the police department are  proud of our department and of our community and we look forward to working closely with all our residents to seek new and creative and more efficient ways to address issues of community safety and security.
