Police Department, Vacation house checks, mission statement
The Clovis Police Department is dedicated to serving the citizens of Clovis. We are committed to fighting crime through all traditional and creative means feasible to protect our residents and visitors. Our goal is to remain the “Safest City” in the Central San Joaquin Valley.
The Clovis Police Department serves a community of 100,000 people. The “Clovis Way of Life” is not just a motto, but also a culture and a belief. The success of the Clovis Police Department comes directly from its citizens, professional staff and the dedicated officers who patrol the streets.
We are proud to be ranked as the safest city in the Central Valley, and listed in the top ten percent of cities in national rankings. Clovis was also recently named as the #1 “Best City in California to raise a family.” These are true testaments to all of the employees and volunteers who work diligently to provide a secure community for us all.
I thank the citizens of Clovis for their ongoing support of the Clovis Police Department. Together we continue to make our city a great place in which to live. It will always be the mission of this department to provide superior protection and service in a manner that builds public confidence and improves the quality of life in our community.

Parking fines in the City of Clovis have been adjusted to be more in line with those of other agencies in Fresno County, as recommended by the California Vehicle Code. The code requires agencies to standardize parking penalties.
The Clovis Police Department is asking for your cooperation, as citizens and as visitors, to follow the law as it pertains to parking. Officers will continue to be looking for safety violations, people illegally parked in handicapped spaces and in front of fire hydrants, and for abandoned/non-working vehicles contributing to blight in city neighborhoods.
The fee schedule is not designed to generate revenue. It merely brings the City into alignment with neighboring communities. The City will continue to contract with Judicial Data Systems (JDS) to process citations and collect fines on behalf of the City of Clovis, while also arranging administrative reviews and hearings of citations.
In addition to its contract with JDS, the City is obligated to pay Fresno County $12.50 from each citation issued. That money is used to support the courthouse and jail facilities. The California Department of Motor Vehicles also receives $3 every time it must place a registration hold on a vehicle.
Forty dollars constitutes the most inexpensive fine when paid within the first 21 days of receiving a citation. Please refer to the City of Clovis Parking Violation Fine Schedule below. The Clovis Police Department appreciates your cooperation in making the right parking location choice.
