Chief's Welcome

 On behalf of the entire staff of the Pittsburg Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our official webpage. I consider it an honor and privilege to be the Chief of Police for the Pittsburg Police Department. I am very proud to work with such a professional group of men and women dedicated to protecting and serving the citizens of Pittsburg.

 We strive to cultivate community relationships, which promotes the strong bond we have with our Pittsburg residents. The members of the Pittsburg Police Department truly care about the safety of our community and value the opportunity to provide service in a manner that is fair, courteous, responsive, and efficient. Our officers are provided with the most current training and modern equipment to help them better serve our community.

 We strongly believe that any challenges the department might face can be addressed effectively by connecting with community leaders, school administrators, members of the business community, non-profit organizations, neighborhood groups, and most importantly, individual citizens. Through the spirit of partnership, we can continue to see further reductions in crime and enhance the quality of life for those who live, work, and play in the city we call home.  I invite you to contact me with any comments, questions, or suggestions you might have about the Police Department.
