Message from the Chief

Welcome to the online home of the Monterey Police Department. As Chief of Police, I am honored to serve this beautiful community alongside the outstanding men and women of this Department. Policing in Monterey is founded upon the tenets of Community Policing. We genuinely believe that in order to create and maintain a safe community, we must develop an interdependent relationship with those we serve. Doing so ensures that we can deliver exceptional service to our residents, businesses, and visitors alike. Sir Robert Peel, the father of modern policing described the importance of this relationship this way when, in 1829 he said:
"The Police are the public, the public are the Police. The Police are the only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties that are incumbent upon every citizen in the interest of community welfare and existence."
