The Desert Hot Springs Police Department provides high visibility preventive patrol, enforcement of local, state and federal laws and ordinances, traffic enforcement, traffic collision investigation, and non-criminal requests for service. Our Detective Bureau conducts all major crimes and follow-up investigations.


The department provides a variety of community resources, offering its technical expertise to those in the community who want to organize neighborhood watch programs, need crime prevention materials, child safety materials, tours of the agency, or specialized presentations on department operations.  Through our Community Resources Specialist, we sponsor an annual Town Hall, National Night Out, community police academy and our junior police camp. In 2011, our Agency was a winner of the James Q. Wilson award for our Community Policing Initiative.


As employees in the "SPA" city, we are committed to Safety, Professionalism, and Accountability (SPA).
