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.

We invite residents to sign up for our community e-newsletter and follow the department on social media channels like Facebook and Instagram.

Menifee’s police department is going to be in the business of sharing information with our community, now and in the future,” says Chief Pat Walsh. “I hope everyone who lives in Menifee will tune in.
