A message from Chief Robert F. Paoletti
I am honored to be the Chief of Police for the City of Redding and commit to you that I will ensure the standards of this department remain high. We will continually seek to improve our performance and level of service, despite the challenges we all face.
I ask each of you to please drive safely as it is a great responsibility. The Redding Police Department will continue to work tirelessly to enforce safe driving habits, but it is ultimately a community responsibility. Safe driving prevents collisions, and the injuries they cause. Please drive the speed limit, obey traffic control devices and limit distractions while driving.
As resources have become restricted due to the economy, it becomes even more imperative for communities to communicate with the police department and each other. Neighborhood Watch and Business Watch programs are invaluable tools for bringing communities together in a concerted effort to recognize and report potential criminal conduct. Crime prevention is the key to our success at this time. We are not only challenged by reduced staffing levels, but also limited jail space and the negative effects of prison realignment. We can no longer take for granted the safety of our property. We must be diligent to keep a watchful eye for our safety and the safety of others.
