Murrieta Police Department

Message from the Chief

On behalf of the men and women of the Murrieta Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope you find our website easy to navigate, as it contains valuable information about our department and the resources, programs, and services we provide to our community.

The Murrieta Police Department was established in July 1992, one year after the City of Murrieta incorporated. Although much has changed since the initial 25 sworn officers and 9 civilian employees began operations on July 31, 1992, the commitment by the men and women of the Murrieta Police Department to partnering with the community to provide the highest quality of service possible has never wavered. Murrieta is consistently ranked as one of the safest cities in the country, and this ranking is a direct result of the partnership the police department has with our community.

Thank you for visiting our website. We welcome your comments, questions, and feedback.

Chief Sean Hadden
