Welcome, and thank you for visiting the Signal Hill Police Department’s website. I hope you find this site both informative and helpful. It is my distinct honor to serve the residents, visitors, businesses, and police department as your Chief of Police.

SHPD wholeheartedly believes in the philosophy of community-oriented policing. In order for a police department to be successful in providing a safe, healthy environment for its citizens, it must partner together with the community it serves to be proactive problem solvers. Citizens are our eyes and ears when we are not there, and we rely on you to call us when there is suspicious or criminal activity. There is never a call for service that is too small. This is what we are here to do - serve.

Our motto - “Committed to Excellence in Service” - says it all. Signal Hill police officers conduct themselves in a professional manner that is consistent with the Law Enforcement Officer’s Code of Ethics and create relationships based on trust and mutual respect. We employ state-of-the-art technology, coupled with the experience and knowledge of our dedicated staff, to provide the safest environment possible for our community. The Signal Hill Police Department prides itself on providing a high level of police service to our community and I am proud to work with each and every one of the members of this fine organization.
