Chief's Welcome

Howdy and welcome to the Pittsburg Police Departments' place on the web. We hope our page gives you further insight into your police department. The Pittsburg Police Department truly believes in being involved with our community and that this partnership is beneficial to all of the citizens we serve. A police department is only as effective as its relationship with its citizens. We believe in keeping in contact with our citizens through social media such as Facebook and this webpage as well as community information and education programs.

The Pittsburg Police Department strives to improve the quality of life for our residents and believes in providing the most professional level of service possible. The men and women who serve stand as the thin blue line that protects society from evil. We believe in enforcing the law fairly and equally regardless of the situation. Your Department employs some of the finest officers in the profession. They are provided with the most current training and modern equipment.

The men and women of the Pittsburg Police Department are proud of our agency and community and look forward to being your partner in a safe and prosperous City of Pittsburg. It is my honor to serve as your Chief of Police and I invite you to contact me with any comments, questions, or suggestions you might have about the Police Department.
