Provided through a contract with the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department, Patterson Police Services administer a wide range of municipal law enforcement services to the residents of Patterson including, but not limited to:
- Citizen Volunteer Programs
- Records Management
- Specialized Enforcement Teams
- Traffic Enforcement
The Patterson City Council, through its City Manager, provides local direction and control of the department, which allows the city to enjoy the benefits and resources of the Sheriff's Department, while at the same time, allowing the city to retain, in effect, its local law enforcement autonomy. View the video below to hear from Chief Clayton on those resources and benefits of the Patterson Police Services.
