The Ventura Police Department is committed to the protection of life and property by providing the highest quality service through community involvement and problem solving.” - VPD Mission Statement
We begin by selecting the best men and women for the job, continually invest in their trainings with over 100 hours annually, and should an incident arise that resulted in the application of some type of force, it is carefully documented by the Officer’s supervisor and team of sworn personnel.
We’ve received many questions from our community asking for clarification about where we stand. We encourage you to take a look at the attached photos and the document that outlines our Use or Force policies. You can find it on our website here: https://www.cityofventura.ca.gov/VPDPolicy
