Above and beyond the call of duty

The Sand City Police Department is committed to serving the needs of residents, businesses and visitors in Sand City.  Beyond this however, the department firmly believes in reaching beyond the borders of the city to actively give back to the greater community in which they live.  By participating in a variety of programs that are educational, professional and charitable in nature, the Sand City Police Department proudly participates in the well being of their community.

Police Chief Brian Ferrante represents the Monterey County Police Chiefs as a sworn Commissioner on the Monterey County Behavioral Health  Commission.  The commission is an advisory board that supports and advises the Behavior Health Department in collaboration with the community.

Additional programs and activities that the department participates in include:

The Good Samaritan Center: Sand City has in its borders the only Salvation Army hygiene facility in Monterey County.  Here, many individuals are offered food, a clean place to shower and a laundry facility to wash clothes.

P.R.V.N.T. – The Sand City Police Department is a member of the Peninsula Regional violence and Narcotics Team. The team is dedicated to impacting narcotics, gangs, and violence on the peninsula through a collaborative effort between local agencies. Because drugs and violence are ever present in many of our communities, it is especially important that there is mutual cooperation among departments in this aspect of law enforcement.

S.R.U. – The Sand City Police Department is active in the Monterey Peninsula Regional Special Response Unit. The SRU is a tactical team consisting of specially trained officers able to respond to high risk events and crises on the Peninsula.
