The Placerville Police Department is "Dedicated to a partnership between community and the police in a collective effort to improve the quality of life and to promote a safer community". We strive to achieve this through our many different programs, and it would not be possible without our dedicated and professional employees.
Placerville Police Department strivesto provide professional service to the community and partner with it to maintain a high quality of life.We use the latest police practices and guidelines to effectively serve the local community with active participation and outreach. in 2013 we implemented two very significant means of alerting our citizens by phone, text, and email from community events and advisories to high level alerts through the use of the Placerville and County of El Dorado OES residential phone based alert system known as Geo Cast. Additionally, we are incorporating technology with public safety through the use of mobile phone text and email based Nixle alert system for those within the city limits and outlying areas. This adds yet another layer of safety, protection, and awareness to the community.
We are active in community meetings such as; New Morning, Boys and Girls Club, Elder Protection Unit, Parent Project, School Attendance Review Board, Crisis Intervention Team, Skate Park, Domestic Violence Council, Child Abuse Prevention Council, and many more. We have officers who volunteer as coaches, and board members of various volunteer organizations.
