Chief’s Welcome

Welcome to the Sonora Police Department website.  It is a great honor to serve the community in which I was raised and an even greater honor to serve as your Police Chief.  The men and women who make up this incredible agency are committed to delivering the highest level of service while safeguarding life and property for our community.

We believe Law Enforcement is an honorable profession and the men and women of this organization take great pride in representing our profession with integrity and dedication.  Our goal is to foster strong community relationships while safeguarding the quality of life we enjoy here in this beautiful foothill community.
