Welcome from Chief David Swing

On behalf of the men and women of the Morgan Hill Police Department, welcome to our website. The Morgan Hill Police Department takes great pride in keeping our residents and visitors safe by providing professional police services through community partnerships. We know that a successful law enforcement organization is one that proactively seeks the community’s help to prevent and solve crime.
The employees and volunteers at the Police Department work hard to ensure that Morgan Hill is a better place to live, work and visit by providing a high quality of life. The work we do is guided by our mission:

“Your Morgan Hill Police Department is committed to deliver intelligence based police services by partnering with the community to reduce crime, apprehend offenders, and improve quality of life with integrity, professionalism and respect.”

We are able to provide quality service because of the high standards of integrity, honesty and compassion among our employees and volunteers, as well as a positive working relationship with all segments of the community.

My vision for our organization is for us to provide productive, professional, and purpose based police services. To achieve this, the Department developed an Outcome Based Strategic Plan for Public Safety in 2012. For the 1st time the Department aligned our public safety strategies and activities with the 4 measurable outcomes identified in the Strategic Plan. The four outcomes are:
  1. Reduce Incidents of Crime and Traffic Collisions
  2. Increase Trust and Confidence in the Police Department
  3. Increase Feeling of Safety
  4. Increase Proficiency of Staff
Each outcome is supported by specific measures and action items to assess levels of achievement. We are working to achieve these outcomes and report our results to the community.

Thanks again for visiting our website and please do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist you in any way 408-776-7315 or via email.
