What Menifee Community Leaders Have to Say about the New Menifee Police Department

We're gearing up to serve our community.

Our mission is a solid foundation of community policing at its best – and that works only when officers and our residents are connected in partnership. The new agency is completing its initial hiring and is moving into a heavy training season with its new officers in anticipation of the summer launch.
