Message from the Chief of Police
On behalf of the men and women of the Murrieta Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope you find our website easy to navigate, as it contains valuable information about our department and the resources, programs, and services we provide to our community.
The Murrieta Police Department was established in July 1992, one year after the City of Murrieta incorporated. Although much has changed since the initial 25 sworn officers and 9 civilian employees began operations on July 31, 1992, the commitment by the men and women of the Murrieta Police Department to partnering with the community to provide the highest quality of service possible has never wavered. Murrieta is consistently ranked as one of the safest cities in the country, and this ranking is a direct result of the partnership the police department has with our community.
Thank you for visiting our website. We welcome your comments, questions, and feedback.

The New Year is here!! Along with the new calendar year come all the new traffic laws our State Legislature has been working on in 2015.
In 2015 many of the laws passed were mundane and affect very few citizens. I’ve picked a few here that will affect many people or have a special interest to Murrieta Valley residents. I’ve included the Assembly Bill (AB) or Senate Bill (SB) number along with the name of your elected individual that sponsored the bill.

The Murrieta Police Department recently established Operation Safe House in order to help residents protect themselves against property crimes. The Operation Safe House program affords city residents a home safety inspection by trained Department Officers and volunteers. It also provides city residents with a self-inspection check sheet designed to better secure their homes and reduce chances of becoming victims of vandalism and property crimes.

It’s January 2016 and we have started the second half of the school year. Before we know it, we will be in the summer months again. As we begin the second half of the school year, I wanted to talk about your children’s drop off and pick up routine.
