Chief Christopher W. Boyd Welcomes You

Chief Boyd 2014 Welcome to CHPD's newly designed website, a 'one-stop shop' for CHPD news and information, media releases, Crime Alert bulletins, special events, crime statistics and more.  The website offers citizens the opportunity to report crime online, file code enforcement complaints, and address traffic issues or concerns.  The social networking piece allows those interested to follow on Twitter.  Soon, we will launch 'virtual' town-hall meetings where the public will have the ability to log in and 'meet', to ask questions of actual police personnel and get answers in real time.

CHPD has drawn (and continues to draw) some of the finest talent California law enforcement has to offer.
With personally selected police professionals of the highest caliber, we have built a police department of the highest caliber; an organization designed to deliver extraordinary service utilizing the talents of extraordinary people.  Indeed, we are now looked to as a model for law enforcement agencies nation-wide.  

We have created a unique department that fosters independent decision making and proactive problem solving amongst our employees.  As a result, CHPD personnel are individuals captivated by our mission and who bring enthusiasm, innovation, self-motivation, and passion to our city.  “We’ve always done it that way” is not, and never will be, part of our culture.  

CHPD focuses on innovative and creative ways to police our city.  Utilizing a ‘community-oriented’ policing philosophy, this department relies upon the strong, positive partnership that has developed between law enforcement and our citizens.  This collaboration greatly enhances the protection and overall safety of our entire community.  I am committed to leading a premiere law enforcement agency that is entrepreneurial, effective, and serves proudly. I invite you to explore our website and learn more about the CHPD.
