About the Fontana Police Department

The Fontana Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency comprised of nearly 300 sworn and non-sworn personnel.  The department is organized along typical lines with an Administrative Services Division, Patrol Unit and Investigations Unit.  According Fontana Police Department, “The Administrative Services Division’s primary mission is to provide support services to the Field and Special Operations Divisions. This mission is primarily accomplished through civilian employees who provide such support functions as hiring of personnel, purchasing, property/evidence, planning and research, training, payroll, internal affairs, risk management, dispatch, reports, budget, records, fleet and facility maintenance, grants and special funding.

The Patrol Unit is the largest and most visible unit within the Police Department and provides round the clock protection and service to the community. The Unit is normally the first point of contact for law enforcement with the public, and has the primary function of enforcing all laws, investigating crimes, apprehending criminals and working towards preventing crime from occurring. The Patrol Unit handles a wide variety of situations such as looking for a lost child, ensuring traffic flows safely, and handling disputes.

The Investigations Unit has the primary responsibility for conducting in-depth criminal investigations that are too complex or time consuming for the Patrol unit to handle or that require highly specialized attention. The unit investigates both reported and unreported crime. Investigators identify and arrest criminal suspects and prepare cases for successful prosecution in the court system.”
