Community Policing

The Citrus Heights Police Department recognizes that our most valuable resource is our citizens. The men and women of the Citrus Heights Police Department are dedicated to providing them with the highest quality police services in order to enhance community safety, protect life and property, and reduce crime and the fear of crime. To do this, the department and its individual members, both civilian and sworn, pledge to develop a partnership with the community to problem solve, improve safety and increase the quality of life for everyone in Citrus Heights.  

We believe a philosophy of Community Oriented Policing (COP) is key in developing these partnerships.  Everything we do is driven by this philosophy. There are many components to successful community policing and require the inclusion of all segments of our city. We are committed to listening to the needs of the community and our businesses and to identify and solve problems for the long term. We will use all of our resources, internal and external, including the community to develop successful strategies in problem solving, crime reduction and traffic management.

Personnel from the Patrol Division work closely with the community, residents and businesses, to reduce crime and traffic collisions while enhancing the quality of life for all who come to Citrus Heights to live, work and shop. This strong partnership between our customers and the department's staff has enabled us to greatly enhance community safety.

Officers and patrol division staff spend time identifying and finding solutions to problems and concerns in our community.  Officers use Problem Oriented Policing (POP) strategies to solve identified problems. These personnel are assisted by officers assigned to the POP unit, whose primary purpose is applying the department's POP strategy throughout the city. 

The Police Department's overall mission of customer service can only be accomplished through community involvement.  Our staff is committed to nurturing collaborative partnerships with individuals, groups, and our business partners to make a difference for Citrus Heights.
