Policy Manual

The Anaheim Police Department's policy manual (partial only) is a living document that is subject to constant change. New laws, court decisions, City Council policies, new methodologies and other factors dictate the need for a continual review of these policies, initiating revisions where necessary and appropriate.

It is recognized that no set of policies and procedures, no matter how complete, can hope to address all the situations that may be encountered. When encountering such situations, this policy manual will serve as a guideline, and should be employed with sound reason, judgment and discretion.

Until a redacted version of the entire Policy Manual is available via this site in the near future, the sections included here represent a sample of those which are often requested by the public.
