The staff at the Moorpark patrol station believe that as important as it is for neighborhoods to be free from the fear of crime, it is also important to actually be free from crime. In partnership with our residents and business owners in the communities we serve, our deputies and professional staff make every effort to maintain safe neighborhoods in the city and unincorporated areas we patrol. We keep our crime rates low through dedication to duty and establishing community partnerships. The entire staff at the Moorpark station make it their mission to hold those accountable who victimize their fellow residents. They do this by never losing sight of keeping the victim at the forefront of everything they do through engagement and offering of resources and assistance.
The Moorpark station has four divisions: Administration, Investigations, Patrol, and Traffic.
The Administration Division is made up of a Sheriff’s Captain who serves as the Chief of Police for the City of Moorpark as well as the commanding officer for the county areas served by the station. A Sergeant serves as the Assistant Chief of Police. A Senior Deputy is assigned to crime prevention and community services. Three professional staff members support the station with administrative functions such as payroll, timekeeping, and records requests. The Volunteers in Policing program is also managed by our Administration Division.
The Investigations Division is led by a Detective Sergeant. Two detectives, two Special Enforcement Deputies, a School Resource Officer, and an Investigator are assigned full time to this division for case follow-up as well as to conduct proactive policing. The School Resource Officer also supervises the Explorer program.
The Traffic Division consists of two motorcycle officers, one of which serves as the unit’s supervisor. A Deputy is also assigned to the unit as a DUI enforcement officer. Three Cadets round out the unit and are responsible for parking enforcement, report writing, and other station duties.
The largest division at the Moorpark station is Patrol. Four Sergeants and twenty-five Deputies provide 24/7 patrol coverage to the City of Moorpark as well as the unincorporated areas of Moorpark, Simi Valley, and the Santa Rosa Valley.
The men and women of the Moorpark Police Department continually strive to strengthen the bonds with the communities we serve, and work together to stamp out crime in a collaborative and effective manner.
