The members of the Moraga Police Department seek to provide the Moraga community a high level of police services and community engagement.
The Moraga Police Department is currently authorized for 12 sworn officers, additional volunteer reserve officers and police cadets, and two civilian positions.
- Chief of Police
- Patrol Officers
- Support Services Coordinator
- Police Services Technician
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.
