Message from the Chief

Hello and on behalf of the men and women of the Pasadena Police Department we welcome you to our homepage.  It is our hope you are able to navigate easily through our website to find the services and assistance needed.  My goal as the Chief of Police is to make Pasadena a safe place to live, work, and visit while providing world class services in a City that hosts quality events such as the Rose Parade, Rose Bowl football game, international soccer, concerts, and UCLA home football games.  Our homepage will provide you with services offered by the City of Pasadena and other community education programs geared towards youth and teens.  As you maneuver through the various options please take the time to become more familiar with the services and programs we offer and the many ways we can assist you.  We offer support in crime prevention, youth outreach, and other helpful programs.  The men and women of the Pasadena Police Department are dedicated public servants committed to your safety and improving the quality of community life throughout Pasadena.  Our volunteer program is nationally recognized as a model in best practices and our community/youth programming is highly supported by our community members who volunteer their time on the Pasadena Activity League (PALS) Board and the Pasadena Police Foundation.  Our standard of excellence in policing is based on our philosophy of the Pasadena Way and establishing relationships based on trust and open communication.  If you have any questions about the Pasadena Police Department please click the link below to leave a message.

John E. Perez, The Chief of Police
