Professionalism and dedication to service

The Menlo Park Police Department demands the highest level of professionalism from its employees. We maintain that employee contact with the public should inspire respect and generate cooperation and approval from the public we serve.

The Menlo Park Police Department strives to provide the best possible police services. For more than 80 years, our department has worked hard every day to protect those who live, work and visit the City of Menlo Park. We achieve this through crime suppression and problem solving, crime analysis and development of crime prevention strategies.

Become a volunteer

The Mission of the Menlo Park Police Volunteers is to support the police department by helping to provide non-enforcement services. This allows professional staff and sworn officers to focus on their primary mission of providing a high level of customer service to the public, crime prevention, and enforcement of the state and city laws.
