Chief's Welcome

Welcome to the Morro Bay Police Department web site. It is my honor to serve this community as the Chief of Police and to lead the great men and women of this agency. It is the mission of this agency to provide the highest level of police service, in partnership with our community. We strive to fulfill our vision of "Excellence in Service".

We believe Law Enforcement is still an honorable and noble profession and the men and women of this organization take great pride in representing our profession, our city and our department in preserving the "quality of life" that we enjoy here on the beautiful central coast.

It is our goal to serve the people who live, work and visit our community with the most effective, efficient and professional police service possible. The men and women of the Morro Bay Police Department understand community policing is much more than a law enforcement concept, it is a way of life, for our department, our city and our community. Each one of us should take an active role in creating a safe and peaceful environment to live, work and play. Together we will continue to make a difference.

I look forward to serving as your Chief of Police and will continue to maintain an "open door" policy and be available to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Jody Cox
Chief of Police
