From The Chief

Buena Park Community,

As Chief of Buena Park Police Department, it is both an honor and a responsibility to serve and protect our community. I wanted to take a moment to share some thoughts on our ongoing commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone in our city.

First, our police department is dedicated to fostering positive relationships with the community we serve. Open communication and collaboration are crucial elements in building trust between law enforcement and residents. Our mission is to disrupt crime, maintain order and serve the public trust through professionalism, accountability and courage. As one of our core values, we are here to serve you, and your input and feedback are invaluable to us.

Our officers are committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism and integrity. As a CALEA accredited agency, we continuously strive to improve our practices and stay abreast of the latest developments in law enforcement to ensure we provide the best possible service. Community safety is a shared responsibility, and we encourage you to reach out to us with any concerns, suggestions, or information that may aid us in keeping our neighborhoods safe.

Building strong community partnerships is at the core of effective policing. We are actively involved in community outreach programs, educational initiatives, and events aimed at bringing us closer together. By working together, we can create an environment where everyone feels safe, respected, and supported.

I want to assure you our officers are dedicated to upholding the law while treating every individual with dignity and respect. We are committed to our core values of service, teamwork, ownership, integrity and compassion. These values and your support will lead to a safer city we can all be proud to call home.
