A Message from the Chief of Police

September 15, 2022

As we get closer to the Holiday Season, the Desert Hot Springs Police Department is committed to the safety of its residents, business owners, and guests. We would like everyone to help make this happen by reporting any suspicious activity immediately to the Police Department. We also encourage drivers to obey all laws and rules of the road. Together we can make this a Happy Holiday Season!

Construction on our new Dispatch Center has been completed and we are all happy to have Dispatch back in our city. Construction on the new “Police Annex” will be starting shortly. The Annex will house the Detective Division, Training Center/Briefing Room, and new locker rooms.

The Police Department is committed to make the City of Desert Hot Springs a great place to live, play, work, and visit!
