The Grass Valley Police Department is committed to reducing crime
and improving the quality of life in our community, which is why
our police services include the following divisions.
The primary functions of the Patrol Division are to provide
prompt response to community requests for police assistance and
to implement proactive measures that reduce and prevent criminal
activity through Community Oriented Policing Programs. Within our
COPP program, patrol officers implement self-initiated crime
prevention measures by partnering with community members.
The Records Division handles all report requests (Incident
reports, Crime Reports, and Accident Reports) to residents,
insurance companies, attorneys, other law enforcement agencies,
etc. Members of this division register convicted criminals
for specific drug, sex, or arson offenses (call the Records Unit
to schedule an appointment). Records checks for the
Department of Defense, law enforcement agencies, military
recruiters, etc. As well as facilitate vehicle releases for
stored or impounded vehicles. Please call to schedule an
appointment (530) 477-4600.
The Detective Division serves investigative functions for the

from patrol, work in plainclothes and conduct follow-up on felony
investigations initiated by the Patrol Division as well as
certain misdemeanors, as deemed appropriate.
