The Murrieta Police Department celebrated 30 years of service Monday, Aug. 1, with a community open house and tours.
Residents came to Town Square Park and the police station to support the department and its milestone anniversary. Besides tours, the event featured food trucks, a photo booth and interactive displays that included SWAT equipment and K9 teams.
The department, which launched Aug. 1, 1992 — about one year after the city’s July 1991 incorporation, has grown along with Murrieta, a city news release states.
“We have a true partnership with our residents and we police this community with a service delivery approach, leveraging our highly skilled officers and dispatchers and with a proactive mindset,” Police Chief Anthony Conrad said in the release.
Memorabilia marking the department’s 30 years was handed out.
