Policy Manual

The Anaheim Police Department's policy manual 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.

The sections included here represent policies that would otherwise be available to the public pursuant to a CPRA request (Gov. Code §6250 et seq.). Policy 331, 404, 405, 407, 408, 410, 414, and 417 have been removed.
