Police Department

The Nevada City Police Department (NCPD) welcomes you to Nevada City, a historic gold town nestled in the Sierra foothills, one of the safest cities in California as well as one of the prettiest.

The dedicated men and women of NCPD have a long history of bringing people together and working out solutions to keep our community a safe and friendly place to live, work and visit. Within the two-square miles of Nevada City, you will often see our officers patrolling streets and parks on foot, in vehicles, or riding bicycles, making one-to-one contacts with residents and visitors in our community.

The Department provides patrol, investigations, crime prevention, traffic enforcement, parking enforcement, drug education and other public safety services and is staffed by a Police Chief,  two (2) Sergeants, six (6) Police officers, two (2) Community Service officers, one (1) Civilian clerk, and three (3) Reserve officers. We operate out of City Hall mid-block on Broad Street and welcome walk-ins during business hours (Monday-Friday; 8:00am -noon and 1:00 - 5:00pm) to discuss local issues, trends, report an incident or just say hello.

The Police Chief invites you to contact him with any comments, questions or suggestions you may have at tim.foley@co.nevada.ca.us or (530) 265-4700. We are committed to serving and protecting the people of Nevada City and welcome the opportunity to work together.
