The dedicated men and women of the El Cajon Police Department are committed to maintaining peace and safety throughout this diverse community by providing high-quality police services that are responsive to the needs of its citizens.

As your Police Chief, providing services that reduce crime and improve the quality of life for those that live, work, and visit the City of El Cajon is my priority.

Community policing is a core principle of our organization. The highly skilled men and women of this department understand the complexities of modern policing and will work tirelessly in protecting this community.

Public safety requires trust and collaboration between the police department and the people it serves. We will strive to nourish existing relationships, and seek to establish new ones. Public safety is a duty and responsibility of every citizen in the interest of community welfare and we will partner with those willing and able, to create strategies to prevent and reduce crime.

It is my honor to serve this organization and this community.

Mike Moulton, Chief of Police
