It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Porterville Police Department website. Since 1902, the men and women of the Porterville Police Department have dedicated themselves to building a safe community in which to live, work, and play by providing the best police services possible to the citizens of Porterville.
My hope is that the information you find here is helpful, and provides you with an enhanced understanding of the police department and how it serves the community of Porterville. Our commitment to reducing crime and striving to improve the quality of life is accomplished through several means. The men and women of the police department will continue to understand the needs of our citizens and meet those needs by providing innovative approaches to solving problems, actively preventing criminal acts, and aggressively apprehending criminals in a manner which is consistent with the law.
Our approach is one of a Community Oriented Government; it is developing a working partnership between City Elected Officials, City Department Staff, School District Personnel, Business Community Members, and our Residents. We encourage each resident to be part of this cooperative effort. This can be accomplished in the simplest form of being a good neighbor and staying informed about your community. It takes involvement from everyone in our community to ensure that we create a safer community to live, work, and play in.
I believe the men and women of the Porterville Police Department are some of the most dedicated, hardworking, and committed individuals you will find anywhere in the law enforcement profession, and I am very proud of them. Working together we can make a difference in our community. Please click here to view the PPD 2011 Year-end Report.
