Message from the Chief of Police

Matt McCaffrey, Chief of Police

Welcome to the online home of the Santa Rosa Junior College Police Department. As Chief of Police, I am honored to serve our college community alongside the outstanding men and women of this department. Policing at the Junior College is founded upon the tenets of Community Policing. Whether it is at the Santa Rosa Campus, Petaluma Campus, Shone Farm in Forestville or the Public Safety Training Center in Windsor, we genuinely believe that in order to create and maintain a safe community, we must develop a relationship with those we serve.

As a Department, we recognize the responsibilities and obligations that come with donning the badge and will honor the public trust that has been bestowed upon us. Our goal is to deliver service to everyone we encounter in a fair, equitable, and compassionate manner, regardless of their station in life.

As Chief of Police, I am committed to creating innovative approaches to delivering police services. We will strive to use technology in our crime fighting strategy. We will utilize social media, among other means, to stay connected to those we serve. I strongly encourage you to register with to receive news release, advisories and emergency alerts directly from the police department.

Sincerely, Matt McCaffrey, Chief of Police
