It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Arcadia Police Department website. Within this site, you will find helpful information about our police department, its structure, its services, and the men and women that make up our organization.
The City of Arcadia is a great place to live and visit in great part because of the relationship our police department has with its community. It is also a great place to work, as I have the honor and privilege of working alongside the talented men and women of the Arcadia Police Department who come to work every day with a collective commitment of making a difference in our community. Along those same lines, I cannot say enough about the citizen involvement in our Volunteer Services Division where community members volunteer personal time to the Police Department in pursuit of giving back to their community.
In addition to the hard work and diligence of our first-responders, our greatest asset in the battle against crime is the watchful citizens who pay close attention to the happenings in their neighborhoods. Having concerned and attentive community members who call the police when suspicious activity occurs in their neighborhood provides police with the best opportunity to prevent crimes, apprehend suspects, and keep our city safe. To this end, the City of Arcadia encourages your participation in our most current campaign "See Something - Say Something," which means if you see unusual activity in your neighborhood, don't wait to alert law enforcement, pick up the phone and call the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5123 or dial 911 immediately. Alert police to anything that may look suspicious. APD wants to ensure your safety, and your call to alert an officer is the best way that you can report important information.
As always, we encourage you to consider becoming a member of our Volunteer Corps, and to work side-by-side with our members through a variety of activities. We look forward to your continuing support and partnership as we work to keep Arcadia the best place to raise a family in California.
