AboutSanta Maria Police Council
Who We Are
The Santa Maria Police Council (“the Council”) was created to assist and support the Santa Maria Police Department. Organized as a non-profit 501(c) 3 charitable organization, the Council aids our Police Department’s leadership by providing critical resources that will help the men and women who safeguard our community.
The Council helps fill the gap between the Department’s increasing public need for law enforcement and tightening city budgets. The Council functions primarily as a fund-raising organization with the emphasis on supplementing equipment and training needs of the Santa Maria Police Department.
The Council works to enhance relations between the community and the Police Department, promote public safety through special events and activities, and recognize the extraordinary efforts of the men and women of the Department.
