Jon B. King - Chief of PoliceChief’s Message

Welcome to the Moraga Police Department page. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our Department. The members of the Moraga Police Department are dedicated to providing excellent service to the residents of and visitors to Moraga, helping to instill a sense of well-being and security for everyone. Moraga is a vibrant community, filled with community pride, volunteerism and residents dedicated to creating and maintaining an excellent quality of life. Our community is enhanced by St. Mary’s College, whose staff and students have called Moraga home since 1928. I am proud to be a SMC Gael Alum! The Moraga Police Department is honored to be a part of and serve the entire Town.

I am proud to not only lead our long standing tradition of service to our community, but to also constantly search for new ways to do so. Sir Robert Peele, who founded the London Metropolitan Police, said that one of the principles of policing is “…to maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police.” We cannot do our jobs without your support and will continue to work hard to earn and maintain both your support and trust.

We are part of the Moraga community and are excited to be involved with and meet residents and visitors alike. Please feel free to reach out to me with any suggestions of how we can do that or if you would like an officer to visit with or speak to your group. I encourage you to join us at one of our Coffee with a Cop functions, attend a Town Hall meeting or meet us at a community event. Please also subscribe to our Nixle.com feed, through which we provide important information about crime alerts, traffic problems and community activities.

I have an open door and do my best to answer e-mails, letters and phone calls.

Please contact me with any concerns, compliments or ideas of what we can do to work together and keep Moraga a safe community.

On behalf of our entire department, thank you for your support! We will continue to work hard and protect and serve our community. Thank you for helping us to keep Moraga safe!
