proactive partnership with our community.

June 11, 2020:  We have answered a lot of questions recently in our community about our use of force policies and how we are engaging with our community.  See our answers to some of the main questions we are hearing and review our policies and procedures manual


COVID Service Changes: 

 - All fingerprinting services are suspended until further notice.

 - We are not accepting medications at our drop box at this time; residents can drop off unwanted medications or expired prescriptions at the downtown QFC pharmacy.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, and in an effort to help with keeping our department personnel and citizens safe and healthy, all ride-a-longs are cancelled through the end of 2020, and until further notice. Thank you for your understanding during this time.
