Who we are

We patrol a wonderfully diverse city, and it's vital that our officers represent that same diversity. Gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and age, these characteristics are all widely represented throughout the department. To be given the trust as a police officer, we must understand the community we are honored to serve.
