Antioch Chief of Police Dr. Steven A. Ford

On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Antioch Police Department, please allow me to thank you for visiting our webpage.

It is my firm belief that the best way to improve the quality of life and make Antioch a safe and thriving community for all is through a collaborative partnership with the citizens who live, work, and play in this great city.

While I am extremely proud and confident in the abilities of all the members of this department, I realize that in order to truly bring about positive, long-term results, the police department cannot do it alone. As President John F. Kennedy said, “The level of crime in a city is in direct proportion to the will of its citizens and law enforcement officers who tolerate it.” We need your help.

One of my goals is to enhance the level of communication between the Department and the community, and this website is one of the many tools we will use to accomplish this necessity. Here, you will find vital information about things such as:

  • Community Policing Programs and Services
  • How to File Certain Reports Online
  • Department Contact Information
  • Crime Statistics
  • At-Risk Youth Programs
  • Animal Control Services
  • FAQs
  • Crime Prevention Tips

In addition to the information found on this website, I would also encourage you to check out our Facebook page (facebook.com/antiochpolice). There you can read about current events and learn about the more personal side of what goes on at the Antioch Police Department.

This partnership is not an option for me…it must remain a reality. Together, we are a stronger body with a shared vision and mutual desire to make positive and real changes that reflect the true values of our remarkable community.

City of Antioch

The City of Antioch is a full service municipal agency serving a population of more than 114,000 residents. The police department is authorized a sworn staff of 115 officers and 33 non-sworn employees, which includes Dispatchers, Community Services Officers and Administrative Support staff.

The department is comprised of two divisions: Support Services and Field Services. The Field Services Division includes Patrol, Community Engagement, and Traffic Bureaus. The Support Services Division consists of Administration, Dispatch, Investigations, Special Operations, and Records. Antioch is the only city in Contra Costa County with its own animal shelter and services, both of which also fall under the purview of the police department.

Our police department is located in downtown Antioch, near the Marina, in a 67,000 square foot facility. It features an indoor firing range, weight training/exercise room, and community meeting room that also serves as the city’s primary Emergency Operations Center when necessary.

Officers may work in a variety of assignments including Patrol, Traffic, Community Engagement Unit, Investigations, SWAT, Hostage Negotiation, Field Training, and K-9. Assignments for our non-sworn staff varies as well, with assignments in Administration, Secured Records, Crime Analysis, Dispatch and Investigations. Community Services Officers can also be assigned to Evidence, Custody, Training, CSI, and the Front Counter.

Most of Antioch’s training is conducted in-house. Officers with special expertise may apply for and become instructors. These officers provide training in the areas of first aid, defensive tactics, firearms, emergency vehicle operation, tactical communications, cultural awareness and much more.

As we continue to grow and welcome new members, we proudly maintain a culture professionalism, dedication, inclusion and pride of each other and our community.
