Chief's Message


Welcome to the San Pablo Police Department’s website. I am honored to lead the exceptional men and women of the San Pablo Police Department and feel privileged to be entrusted to serve our fine community.   

An authorized strength of 55 police officers and 24 civilian employees (FY 2015-2016) carry out their respective duties with pride, enthusiasm for public service and enhancing San Pablo’s quality of life.  

Behind the scenes, employees perform countless acts of compassion and volunteerism to further the causes of public safety, civic pride and effective joint police – community partnerships. We are a department grounded by our integrity, respect for one another, community partnerships, accountability, and quality of work.  

I am very appreciative of how diverse our community is and the pride that is displayed.  From our elders, who know the City's historical perspective, to the youth, who are the future of our community.  Our City and community members are mutually comfortable in understanding the role each of us has in making San Pablo the best City. 

I personally invite you to learn more about the department, and to stay connected with us to further strengthen communication and collaboration; visit us on Facebook and Twitter. 

The Community’s support, confidence and engagement are essential to our continued success as a policing agency.  Together, working as a progressive community, we are able to achieve positive change that not only reduces crime, but remedies crime’s root causes.
