Police Officers are the most visible aspect of any police department. For this reason, we are committed to providing excellent front line law enforcement service to our residents and visitors. We will accomplish this by serving the citizens of West Covina with the highest ethical standards and professionalism, achieving the Department’s motto of “Integrity and Service since 1937.” I am proud to serve as your Chief of Police and hope you will join with us making the City of West Covina a safe place to work and play.
About two-thirds of all sworn officers work in this division, which focuses on patrolling city streets, answering calls for service, and identifying potential crime problems. Under the Community Service Area Policing program, four dedicated lieutenants and their crews are assigned a specific quadrant of the City and tasked with resolving public safety concerns for residents, neighborhoods, and businesses. This division includes the Traffic Unit, the K-9 Unit, Jail Operations, Reserve Officers, Police Cadets and award-winning SHOP senior volunteers who perform non-hazardous duties to free up sworn officers.
We are so thankful for the community's show of support shown for the men and women of the West Covina Police Department. Today, Ms Maureen Hinds met with City Manager Chris Freeland stating she felt she needed to do something for the Police Department. She bought snacks and treats and placed them in a blue basket to represent #BacktheBlue. She was then escorted by Mr. Freeland to the Police Chief's office where she presented Chief Faulkner the gift basket. Thank you Ms Hinds!

Thank You! On Saturday, July 23, 2016, the WCPD was visited by the Vest Family who came to the front lobby with a couple of boxes of cookies for the Police Department.

Pictured in the photo is Community Service Officer Christopher Huynh, who apparently was first to sample the cookies. ... See MoreSee Less
