fullerton police department

Located at 237 W. Commonwealth Fullerton, CA 92832, the Fullerton Police Department is the second largest municipal police agency in Orange County. There are a total of 143 sworn officer and a total of 67 civilian personnel. The Fullerton Police Department is one of the smaller police departments in Orange County, but they are still just as dedicated to find more professional and innovative policing in order to keep the citizens of the city as safe as possible.


The men and women that are trusted with the safety of the city are motivated to work with the residents in order to figure out new ways of keeping the citizens safe. It is essential that the community works with the police department in order to find new dangers that lie within the city. Police are limited to what they hear that is going on in the city, which is why the police department is always open for any concerned citizen to visit if they have something to report or if they would like to volunteer their time to help out in the community.


Keeping the city as safe as possible is combined effort from the community and the Police. The Police Chief Dan Hughes works tirelessly with all of his officers to make sure that the entire department is always organized and is working as hard as possible to get rid of all of the crime in the city. It is his job to keep all of the officers motivated every day when they risk their lives for people they have never met. The entire police department is made up of smaller section in order to separate the work load and responsibilities of the department.


This makes it easier for everyone to complete their tasks, but this relies on the communication between every one in the department in order for it to work properly. Some of the divisions in the department include: Internal Affairs, Administration, Financial Bureau, Investigations Bureau, Patrol Bureau, and the Support Bureau. Each division cannot work on its own to make sure that the city is safe, but when they all come together for a case, then it will be done more efficiently and correctly. Whenever someone is arrested in the city of Fullerton, they will most likely be taken to the Fullerton Police Department.


This is where they will undergo the booking process and will be held until the inmate is either bailed out or is transferred to the county jail. The inmate’s case for his or her charges will usually be sent to the North Justice Center. This is the courthouse that the inmate will have to answer for his or her arrest and charges.
