As part of Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, we wanted to give you another glimpse into the FCPD. Here are some of our specialty units and their tools of the trade. Many of our officers traded in their laptops, suits, and 9-5s for a career in public service. #swat #motors #honorguard #nationalpoliceweek #honorthefallen #cops #thinblueline #iamfcpd #firstspear #flyingcross #bmw #smithandwesson #teamwendy #gucci

Part 3 of Law Enforcement Appreciation week. Did you know FCPD’s management team consists of: A Chief that grew up in Foster City, a Captain that began his career as a Volunteer at the PD, a Captain with different colored eyes, a Lieutenant born and raised in Jersey, and a Lt who bowled a perfect game.

Early this afternoon, we had a call for service involving a male adult injured and in need of serious medical assistance on the levee near Bowditch Middle School. The subject was treated and transported by ambulance to the Hospital. There is no public safety threat. Keeping privacy laws in mind, please realize that every public safety incident in the city is not available for disclosure or sharing on social media. Rest assured that the FCPD will provide you with information if there is ANY concern for the community as a whole, whatsoever, while also appropriately respecting the privacy of those who reside here. Thank you to everyone that helped out!

To start off National Police Week we remember those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Here we have a collection of our badges and patches from the beginning to the present. #iamfcpd #policeweek2018 #honorthefallen #tilvalhalla #cops #police #thinblueline #nationalpoliceweek

"Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer." From the FCPD to our Reserve Police Officers, Emergency Services Volunteers, and Explorers...Thank You! We have nothing but respect and gratitude for the dedication to duty, sacrifice, and service to Foster City. Each selflessly serves our community and police department and contributes to the safety of the community, many times at moments notice. Last night, the Foster City City Council presented to one of our Reserve Officers and an Emergency Services Volunteer the proclamation declaring April 15-21, 2018, National Volunteer Week. Combined they have given 45 years of volunteer service to the community and the police department, 20 and 25 years respectively....that's 20 and 25 years worth of 4th of Julys volunteering to work on that day instead of being home with their families, in addition to all the other days and nights they volunteer their time. Thank you for making Foster City a great place to live, work, and play! If you are interested in volunteering, please call at 650-286-3300 to find out more.

Today, we acknowledged the hard work and commitment of our 911 dispatchers at the annual awards luncheon. The dispatcher of the year certificate was awarded to our entire group of dispatchers for the excellent job they do serving the Foster City Community. We want to say thank you and let them know that we appreciate what they do. FCPD Dispatch-You Rock!

Did you know that……. Foster City has an ordinance that makes it a smoking-free city so you cannot smoke within a shopping center or in a park ( to name a few locations), and you can be cited and fined. Like we always do, we strive to educate the community about the law. So, our officers were out and about at Edgewater Place last weekend passing out informational pamphlets about the ordinance that prohibits smoking in Foster City -- to learn more about it, see the pamphlet we posted below. Now that we have educated folks that smoking is prohibited and about the potential fines, it is time for us to see how things are going. So, we will be monitoring the areas where smoking is prohibited. If you are wondering whether we will be enforcing the ban on smoking………yes, we sure will ……No ifs, ands, or Butts About It!

National Dispatchers Week: We are proud that we have the finest 911 dispatchers in the business! They are the "Thin Golden Line" of professionalism and dedication, who answer all the 911 calls and get you the help you need. So, we celebrate and acknowledge their contributions to the noble cause of keeping the community members of Foster City Safe. Acknowledging our dispatchers, the FC City Council provided our dispatchers with a proclamation acknowledging April 8-14 as National Telecommunicators (aka, Dispatchers) Week. THANK YOU FCPD Dispatchers!

Chief Pierucci had the honor of welcoming the attendees of our Community Police Academy earlier this week. Throughout the next 8 weeks, the class will be treated to a behind the scenes look at what Law Enforcement does and other special surprises.
