The Palm Desert Police Department is dedicated to providing the citizens, business owners, and visitors to Palm Desert a safe and pleasant environment in which to live, work, and enjoy the amenities of this fine city.

This web site offers a brief look at the many services the Department provides. The Palm Desert Police Department is proudly served under contract by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. Contract law enforcement has been in existence for many years, in fact, the Riverside County Sheriff's department has been providing law enforcement services to the City of Palm Desert since the city was founded in 1973. Palm Desert is one of 17 cities in our county that have asked us to provide law enforcement services.

The Palm Desert Police Department is proud to provide quality service to the City of Palm Desert. We are, as our slogan reads, Professionals Who Care. Again, thanks for visiting our website and remember that public safety is everyone's business and we are here to protect and serve you.
