Chief's Message

Welcome to the Orange Police Department.  My name is Robert Gustafson and it is my honor to serve as the 33rd Chief of Police for the City of Orange.  The residents of Orange can be very proud of this Department and the men and women who commit themselves to providing for the safety of our community.

The City of Orange is one of the most prominent and diverse cities in California.  We are the sixth largest city in Orange County, and one of only a few that will experience continued growth and expansion well beyond our current geographical size and population.  Regardless of our size and rate of growth, our goal is to remain at the forefront of crime fighting effectiveness and be active in both youth and community issues. A great deal of our success results from working with the community in a strategic partnership designed to preserve the quality of life long associated with Orange.

I believe public service is a noble calling that encompasses pride, honor and shared responsibility. Emblazoned on every police vehicle is a reminder of our core purpose as law enforcement professionals: "Dedicated to Service."  We deliver this service through a strategy emphasizing personal character, integrity and honesty.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website and hope that you enjoy learning more about the Orange Police Department.  If a member of our organization may be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
