Welcome from Chief David Swing

The Morgan Hill Police Department takes great pride in keeping our residents and visitors safe by providing professional police services through community partnerships. We know that a successful law enforcement organization is one that proactively seeks the community’s help to prevent and solve crime.
The employees and volunteers at the Police Department work hard to ensure that Morgan Hill is a better place to live, work and visit by providing a high quality of life. The work we do is guided by our mission:

“Your Morgan Hill Police Department is committed to deliver intelligence based police services by partnering with the community to reduce crime, apprehend offenders, and improve quality of life with integrity, professionalism and respect.” 

Chief Swing
We are able to provide quality service because of the high standards of integrity, honesty and compassion among our employees and volunteers, as well as a positive working relationship with all segments of the community.
My vision for our organization is for us to provide productive, professional, and purpose based police services. To achieve this, the Department has developed an Outcome Based  Plan for Public Safety. The Department has aligned our public safety strategies and activities with three outcomes to be the Department of Choice. The outcomes are:

  1. Reduce Incidents of Crime and Traffic Collisions
  2. Increase Trust and Confidence in the Police Department
  3. Enhance our Culture
Each outcome is supported by specific measures and action items to assess levels of achievement. We are working to achieve these outcomes and report our results to the community.
