The mission of the Police Department is to protect the public peace, safeguard lives and property, protect the rights of individuals, and the security and freedom of our community.
Police Officer Positions
Department is comprised of 17 sworn, 2 civilian employees and 7 crossing
guards dedicated to serving the City of Greenfield. Six police officer
positions are budgeted in the Measure X Sales Tax Fund and 2 police
officer positions in the COPS Grants Fund as School Resource Officers.
The Department has also budgeted 2 additional unfunded Police Officer positions in fiscal year 2016 and will apply for supplemental federal funding through the U.S. Department of Justice COPS Hiring Program. In addition, the Department has 2 volunteers who volunteer their time to provide translation, crime analysis, and other services to the City.
The members of the Department bring diverse life experiences and
cultural perspectives to the City, which provide excellent foundations
for community service and outreach. The Police Department will continue
to recruit applicants for the Reserve Officer Program. Potential
candidates will apply, a thorough background check will be conducted,
and then be afforded the opportunity to participate in a formal Reserve
Field Training Program to enhance and develop their patrol skills.
