the Redlands Police Department
Redlands Police Department employs 98 sworn officers and more than 100 civilian personnel and operates under the policy of
Risk Focused Policing (RFP). Risk Focused Policing is a data and results-driven, community-oriented policing and problem solving
strategy which focuses on those factors in a community that place its youth and their families most at risk for criminal and
other problem behaviors. In addition to measuring risk factors and finding ways to control crime before it happens - which
is the philosophy of RFP, there are five community policing stations staffed by Community Policing Officers and other police
personnel working toward a healthy community. The Redlands Police Department
is organized into two large divisions: Field Services and Community Services.
Field Services Division of the Redlands Police Department comprises four bureaus: Patrol Services Bureau, Crime Intervention
Bureau, Investigative Services Bureau, and the University of Redlands, Director of Public Safety. The division consists of
96 sworn personnel, 41 civilian employees and more than 100 citizen volunteer members,
Redlands Police Department’s Investigative Services Bureau is primarily responsible for investigating serious and complex
felony cases such as murder, aggravated assault, sex crimes, crimes against children and the elderly, robbery, burglary, identity
theft, auto theft and arson. Additionally, the ISB investigates all death cases, missing persons and runaways. The structure
of the ISB includes a lieutenant who is the Bureau Commander and a sergeant who is the Assistant Bureau Commander. Three primary
units make up the bureau; the Violent Crimes Unit with two detectives, the Special Victims Unit with two detectives and one
investigator and the Property Crimes Unit with two detectives and one investigator.
Crime Intervention Bureau of the Redlands Police Department (CIB) is responsible for identifying specific crime problems or
trends within a geographic area and developing a response or intervention strategy that will have a positive effect on the
problem. Through the use of sophisticated crime analysis, members of CIB employ a “problem solving” approach to
crime in Redlands. The Crime Intervention Bureau includes the Multiple Enforcement Team, Parole and Corrections Team (PACT),
and the Drug Court Officer.
The Community Analysis and
Technology Unit of the Redlands Police Department provides support and services in pursuit of the Police Department’s
mission, and works in partnership with public and community partners to connect data and technology assets and skills to our
decisions, efforts and operations.
