Your Campbell Police Department values the strong relationships we have developed with our community. We strive to protect and serve with the utmost integrity. We continually invest in our officers by sending them to various trainings that focus on de-escalating situations, crisis intervention and principled policing centered on justice, neutrality and addressing implicit biases. Our requirements and trainings go beyond standards set by California Peace Officers Standards and Training in both Procedural Justice Training and Crisis Intervention Training. In 2008, we were the first in Santa Clara County and one of the first in the state to outfit all of our officers with body worn cameras. Prior to the body worn camera technology, we began using in-car recording systems in the 1990s and were one of the first agencies in the nation to do so. We will continue to work together to build a better and stronger community.
Where We Stand
As Chief Berg stated in his Message to the Community, "we are committed to continual improvement and will build on the outstanding community partnership that already exists in Campbell." We have received many questions from our community about our policies and training and want to provide a closer look into those policies. The Campbell Police Department Policy Manual is a living document that is subject to constant change. New laws, court decisions, City Council policies, new methodologies and other factors dictate the need for a continual review of these policies, initiating revisions where necessary and appropriate. Please take a look at our comprehensive #8CantWait Guide to view where we stand.
