Police Department
The City of Gustine Police Department provides 24/7 365 day protection to the citizens and general public. This is accomplished by having pride, integrity and professionalism in our work and community. We seek input from the public to help identify and suggest areas of improvement and where criminal conduct is occurring.

We have 11 full time employees that provide services that include patrol, records, animal services and code enforcement. We also have additional personnel that volunteer their time and serve in the capacity of reserve officers, police explorers and citizen patrol.
