The City of Campbell is centrally located in the Silicon Valley area and is neighbored by the City of San Jose and the Town of Los Gatos.  Campbell is a vibrant and dynamic community with excellent weather, diverse neighborhoods, and an open and customer service-oriented city government. It is an exceptional place to live and work.

The Campbell Police Department has a long history of providing outstanding law enforcement service to our community and we remain committed to our Core Principles of Policing – Service, Justice, and Fundamental Fairness. 

The Campbell Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency which includes Administration, Field Services (Patrol), Investigations, Traffic Enforcement, 9-1-1 Communications, and Records/Evidence Management. In addition, we provide a multitude of other services including Abandoned Vehicle Abatement, Graffiti Reporting and Abatement, and Emergency Management.

We handle approximately 35,000 calls for service a year.  Our officers write over 5,500 police reports each year and make approximately 1,800 arrests.  We are a professional law enforcement organization and the men and women of our department are dedicated to keeping our community safe and secure. We value the importance of connecting with our community to effectively and efficiently address issues of neighborhood safety and security.

I am proud to be a member of this outstanding police department, and I am honored to serve the Campbell community.
