About the Anaheim Police Department

The Anaheim Police Department dates back to 1870 when David “Dye” Davies was elected as the first City Marshal. The population of Anaheim was less then 1,000. Today the city has over 300,000 residents. The Anaheim Police Department employs 400 sworn officers, a support staff of over 173.  Currently, the Anaheim Police Department is organized into four divisions: Investigations Division; Operations Support Division; Operations Division; and, Special Operations Division. 


The Detective Division of the Anaheim Police Department is divided into two separate Bureaus: Crimes Persons and Crimes Property. The specialized Details in the Crimes Persons Bureau consist of Juvenile/Sex Crimes; Robbery/Homicide; Assaults and Forensic Services. The Crimes Property Bureau handles Residential and Commercial Burglaries, Thefts, Auto Thefts, Economic Crimes and the service of Arrest Warrants. The Crimes Property Bureau also handles Computer Crimes. Investigators also process crime scenes forensically, and serve outstanding arrest warrants. In recent years the Forensic Detail has been civilianized. Sworn Police Investigators no longer process crime scenes; civilian employees have assumed these duties.


The personnel detail of the Anaheim Police Department is charged with the responsibility of overseeing and controlling all aspects of the personnel processing system, including the recruiting, conducting background investigations and processing of applicants who are seeking to be employed by the Department. The detail acts as a liaison between the City of Anaheim Human Resources Department and the Police Department.


Under the direction of the Deputy Chief, and a part of the Bureau of Professional Standards, the detail consists of a Lieutenant, a Personnel Sergeant, Four Background Investigators, and a Polygraph examiner who are all sworn officers. The detail also has a Reserve Police Officer who does Background Investigations and an Officer who maintains the web page for the Police Department. There are also civilian staff members who work alongside the Officers in the detail to screen and hire the most qualified candidates for the many positions of employment with the Anaheim Police department.


The Anaheim Police Polygraph Examiner conducts hundreds of polygraph (or lie detector) examinations each year. In addition to pre-employment exams, the examiner also assists in criminal investigations, and assists other Orange County Agencies with their investigations.

According to the editor of Secret of Success, TJ Ramos, “Enjoy entertaining insights that encourage the reader toward success by thinking differently from what's expected.  Not just another 'motivational' blurb, not another 'how to get rich quick' guide... this lively trip into basic human nature shows how to understand what people mean, despite what they say! Everyday communications are filled with expressions, slang, know-it-alls, body language, and circumstances that often turn mutual expectations into misunderstandings and conflicts. Paul translates the real world with humorous, often cynical, working-man's perspective! His inspiration is a teacher's desire to pass on his knowledge to others. Paul's prose is populated throughout with short tales from his life and common sayings that give familiar situations new meaning when thought about differently. Pay attention now...Secret: attract honest, talented people who motivate each other toward SUCCESS. How? This inexpensive syllabus will enrich all who read it. College professors should included it as a supplement to an introductory course in creative writing for college students. It also makes a great gift, especially for high school graduates, so enjoy quantity discount pricing and pass along this good stuff.”
