The mission of the Ventura Police Department is to protect, serve, and problem solve with our community. We are great people, providing exceptional service, and we value excellence, integrity, professionalism, respect, and transparency.
We are a family of over 225 officers, professional staff, and volunteers that work tirelessly towards this mission each day. We accomplish this by investing in our team and building strong community partnerships through community events, neighborhood meetings, and day to day activities. We stay committed to you by maintaining trust through transparency and showcasing our commitment to excellence.
The Ventura Police Department is comprised of two divisions: Field Operations and Administration Operations.
Each of the members in these divisions proudly serve our city and strive to perform their best every day, treating each resident equally with respect, empathy and dignity.
