Community Policing is a partnership between a police department and the community it serves. That partnership is most effective when the community is engaged on issues related to their safety. To be engaged, community members must be provided accurate and timely information by their police department. In other words, an informed community creates an engaged community.

This portal is designed to provide accurate and timely access to crime and other public safety related information occurring in our neighborhoods, parks, business districts…anywhere in the City of Chico. As I mentioned, this access is the first step to an informed and engaged community.

We are excited to provide this level of information to our community. We also welcome the interaction and conversation about public safety we think it will engender. Thank you for your interest in this information, and most importantly, your interest in partnering with us for the safety of our incredible community!


Chief Michael O’Brien
