Chief's Welcome

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Pasadena Police Officer. Whether a lifelong dream or a recent calling, serving the public as a police officer can be a fulfilling career.  The Pasadena Police Department is rich in history. Becoming part of our team can make a considerable difference in the lives of our community. We are committed to our core values which are: service, community, crime suppression, teamwork, and pride. Our department can offer you a wide array of opportunities.

Law enforcement is a rewarding career and one that allows you to make a profound impact in the lives of others. There is no greater responsibility than defending our democracy and the freedoms that we, as citizens, enjoy each day. As an agency, we have a strong commitment to community service. One of the lessons I have learned, is that developing positive relationships with our citizens makes us more successful at reducing and preventing crime. If you are interested in working for a progressive and forward-thinking department, with a strong focus on positive community relations, look no further.
