Department Profile

The Colma Police Department is made up of 28 women and men who take great pride in providing excellent police service to our community. Among our police, dispatch and detective duties, we also have a motorcycle officer, bicycle patrol officers, a member attached to the Daly City/North County SWAT team, tactical dispatchers, a Community Service Officer and a Reserve Police Officer Program.

Our members frequently participate in county-wide law enforcement efforts by taking part in the San Mateo County Gang Task Force, STEP (Saturation Traffic Enforcement Program) and as Police Academy Instructors. These activities not only build a strong coalition with the San Mateo County law enforcement community, but also helps to enhance our skills and abilities.

We enjoy meeting with the public and taking part in community events such as National Night Out, Community Fair, Special Olympics Torch Run, Senior Luncheons, and Kops and Kids bowling. We provide safety and crime awareness seminars to keep our residents and business community informed of current crime trends in the area and on the internet.

Our members are also involved in a Youth Outreach Program, in partnership with the Recreation Services Department, to plan and implement various events and activities for our youth and police officers. The benefits of the Youth Outreach Program include building positive relationships with the youth of our community, mentoring and motivating youth to work hard in school, helping to build self-confidence and self-image, and providing a better understanding of police work.
