Welcome to the Signal Hill Police Department and thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you are able to find valuable information about the City of Signal Hill, the members of your police department, and the variety of public services we are entrusted to deliver.
At the core of our Department is the understanding and realization that our profession involves working with the public, and we are at our strongest when we treat people with respect, empathy, and dignity, as is reflected in our values statement. Some ten years ago, I came across a then decade old police pamphlet that touted "People and the Police, the new team." The point of sharing this information is to highlight the fact that the people and police partnership was, is, and will always be the foundation of public safety.
All employees recognize and appreciate the responsibility of serving our community, knowing at all times that we are the caretakers of the most delicate, important facet of society - the public trust. We know our community looks to us to provide the most professional and dependable police services possible, among them protecting people and property, arresting law-breakers, and doing all we can to promote justice.
Finally, we encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities to get involved with your police department on a more personal level. Our Police Volunteer and Police Explorer programs offer opportunities for persons of all ages to serve alongside the men and women of the Signal Hill Police Department, while our Citizens' Academy and CERT training offer a look at the inner workings of your police department as well as basic training in safety and life-saving skills.
Again, thank you for visiting our website.
Michael S. Langston
Chief of Police
