Message from Chief Hill
I am pleased and honored to lead the Perris Police Department. The Perris Police Department is responsible for the vital mission of providing police services for the City. The Perris Police Department is a full service law enforcement agency that provides Detectives, Patrol, Special Enforcement Team efforts, and Traffic safety programs. The Perris Police Department also participates on the Regional Gang Task Force and the Southwest Corridor Narcotics Task Force. Our goal is to control crime and improve quality of life for the people who reside, work, or visit the City of Perris. We partner with businesses, the community, and local agencies to achieve this goal, helping maintain excellent public safety for the City.
Perris Police continue to utilize a Zone Policing concept. Officers are generally deployed to the same areas on a daily basis. We find this allows our citizens to get to know our officers better and our officers have the opportunity to get to know the community better.
Additionally, officers who are assigned to our Special Enforcement Team are assigned to specific zones and specialties. They monitor crime problems, and develop action plans to address community issues. We believe Zone Policing allows us to better integrate into the communities we serve, develop trust, and provide better customer service.
Perris Police utilizes the Crime Control Model to systematically deploy police resources to address community problems. We possess crime mapping capabilities that allow us to direct programs toward current trends in criminal activity. We use data driven policing to maximize resources available to the police department.
The Perris Police Department perpetually seeks assistance from the community. We encourage you to report suspicious persons or information which will help us solve crime. We also encourage local neighborhood watch programs and police volunteers. If you are interested in starting a neighborhood watch program or becoming a volunteer for the police department, please contact us.
It is an honor and privilege to serve the City of Perris as your Police Chief. If we can be of assistance to you, please contact us.

Megan's Law: Public Sex Offender Information
In 1995, a convicted child molester was arrested for the murder and rape of 7 year-old Megan Kanka in a New Jersey suburb. The offender lived across the street from the Kanka residence. The Police Department was prohibited from disclosing the presence of the child molester because at the time, the law did not allow the release of the sex offender information to the public.
The law was changed to permit the release of this information to the public and on May 8, 1996, President Clinton signed the law, dubbed "Megan's Law" in remembrance of little Megan Kanka. The California State Legislature signed California's version of Megan's Law into effect on September 25, 1996. This law was implemented to allow potential victims to protect themselves and allow parents to protect their children.
