Who We Are

Chief Baker(1)To the Members of Our Community and Visitors:

On behalf of the women and men of the Yuba City Police Department, thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

As your Chief of Police, I promise an open, accountable, accessible police department that will be responsive to your concerns.  In 1829, Robert Peel, the father of modern policing, stated, “The basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder.”  Without community support and involvement, we cannot prevent crime and disorder.  We need our community to let us know when things are not going well in their neighborhoods or business districts. As a department, we cannot fix things that we do not know are broken.   Our goal as a department is to be visible and to work in partnership with our community to make life better for all community members. 

As a department, we desire to have a City where members of our community feel safe and a place where businesses can be prosperous.  If you have any questions or comments about our website please feel free to reach out to us.

Brian Baker
Chief of Police
