Department Profile


The Colma Police Department is made up of 25 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, a member attached to the Daly City/North San Mateo County SWAT team, a tactical (SWAT) dispatcher and a Community Service Officer.

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), Narcotic Task Force Details, Alcohol Beverage Control Operations and as Police Academy instructors.  These activities not only build a strong coalition with the San Mateo County law enforcement community, but also help to enhance our skills and abilities.

We enjoy meeting with the public and taking part in events such as Breakfast with Santa, the Special Olympics Torch Run, Kops and Kids bowling, the Easter “Eggstravaganza” and by attending Senior Luncheons.  We provide safety and crime awareness seminars to keep our residents and business community informed of crime trends occurring in the area and on the Internet.
