The department provides a full range of police services to a population of more than 7,100 residents. The town’s population increases sharply during weekdays due to the nine private and public schools within the town limits and on-going construction projects.

The men and women of the Atherton Police Department serve with unmistakable pride and integrity, which has garnered the organization tremendous community support. Subscribing to a philosophy of community policing, they provide a unique and personalized brand of customer service seldom seen in other police agencies. Through strong police / community partnerships, the Town of Atherton enjoys an extremely low crime rate, which contributes to a very desirable quality of life for our residents.
