Summer is always an exciting time in Danville and this year
will be no exception. We have several
important events happening and I would like to extend a personal invitation to all
of our residents and businesses:
The annual “National Night Out” will be occurring on Tuesday
August 4th. This is a chance
to get to know your neighbors and your police department on a more personal
level. I, and several members of my
staff, will be out around Town visiting neighborhood parties and we look
forward to meeting as many residents as we can!
However, in order for us to put your party on the list for us to visit,
you will need to let us know you’ll be participating in National Night Out. To
register your neighborhood party, please contact Crime Prevention Officer
Jacklyn McDaniel at (925) 314-3707 or email@example.com
On Saturday, September 19, 2015, we will be hosting an Open
House at the Danville Police Department.
This is an exciting chance for you to bring your families down to the
station and see our vehicles, receive tours of the department, watch K-9
demonstrations and other fun activities!
Please look for an announcement flyer in the coming weeks. For more
information on the Open House please contact Sergeant Chris Martin at (925)
314-3725 or firstname.lastname@example.org
And finally, starting in late September, we will be hosting
another session of our well-received Citizen’s Police Academy. This is an excellent opportunity for you to
learn more about your police department and how we serve you. The program is six weeks long and runs on
consecutive Wednesday nights with two full Saturdays included. Participants get an unsurpassed first-hand
look at how the police department operates.
For more information on the Citizen’s Police Academy please contact
Lieutenant Allan Shields at 314-3702 or email@example.com
I want to thank all of our residents and business owners for
your continued support. We know that we
cannot function without your trust and support.
As always, I feel that an open door policy is an important piece of
maintaining a good relationship with you.
Please feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by
stopping by our office.
Thank you and have a safe and happy summer!

In an effort to provide more information to the community, the Danville Police Department's weekly calls for service (known as the police blotter) will be posted to this page each week. The blotter details information on calls for services, such as time, location, report number and disposition. Below is a .pdf document with coding used under 'disposition', so residents can see how each call was resolved.
An alarm permit is required for every person or business installing and using an alarm system within the Town of Danville.
Register your alarm.
