Petaluma Police Department knows that the relationships developed between members of the community and our staff makes the difference in increasing the quality of life for everyone in our neighborhoods. Our agency works to protect the city of Petaluma using a customized community policing service model described as District Policing. To personalize the community’s relationship with our staff, this District Policing model identifies 15 smaller neighborhoods or Districts within our normal patrol beats. To ensure our community members have direct access, two Petaluma Police officers are assigned to each district. These officers take a vested interest and responsibility in patrolling their districts with respect, inclusion and collaboration. These district officers serve as an invaluable resource and conduit for community issues in those areas. Emergency situations and in-progress incidents should always still be reported directly to our dispatch center via 9-1-1.
Using the interactive District Map, community members can enter their address to get contact information for their assigned officers and learn which district their home is located. We encourage you to reach out to your District Officers for an introduction, for invitations to town hall/district meetings and to discuss neighborhood issues/concerns.
