Police Department

Chief Nakamura_3

Hello and welcome to the website of the Arcadia Police Department. In the website, you will learn about our organization, our values and the services we proudly provide to our community.

It is an honor to lead the men and women of the Arcadia Police Department and a privilege to serve the City of Arcadia for the past 28 years. The Arcadia Police Department values its commitment to service and commitment to its employees as we work to meet the needs of the community in the 21st century. Reducing crime has always been the number one priority of the Arcadia Police Department. The use of various technologies and improving recruitment and training of officers are vital components in maintaining this priority.

All members of the Arcadia Police Department are expected to perform their duties legally and professionally while respecting the Constitutional Rights of all people. We are dedicated to our Law Enforcement Code of Ethics as we recognize that adherence to the highest ethical standard is the basis of keeping the trust of the public.

I believe one of the reasons why Arcadia is a wonderful place to live and work is because of the continuing relationship between the Arcadia Police Department and its community, a partnership that actively works to ensure a good quality of life and, above all, to keep Arcadia safe. We have community members who volunteer their time to the Police Department in pursuit of the partnership. The community support for the Arcadia Police Department is second to none.

Finally, the most valuable resource we have are the men and women of the Arcadia Police Department with whom I proudly serve. They include Police Officers, Reserve Officers, Dispatchers, Records Technicians, Administrative Support Staff and Police Volunteers. We have a collective goal of “making a difference” in our community. If “making a difference” is important to you, I invite you to consider becoming an employee or a volunteer of the Police Department.

On behalf of the men and women of the Arcadia Police Department, thank you for visiting our website and for your support.


Roy Nakamura
Chief of Police
