The Moraga Police Department provides service to the community seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Although the primary function of the Patrol Division is to prevent crime and apprehend criminals, patrol officers must also be versed in civil and criminal law, traffic accident investigation and enforcement, and crisis intervention techniques. Patrol officers also participate in community events including attending public functions and giving presentations.
While patrol officers are the first responders to most incidents, they are also required to complete many complex investigations. Patrol officers receive extensive ongoing training in a variety of subjects throughout their careers. This training, combined with the use of technology, enables our patrol officers to provide the best possible police service to the citizens of Moraga.
