From the Chief – 2017


On behalf of all members of the Bishop Police Department, welcome to the Department’s website. We truly endeavor to provide those we are sworn to protect with exceptional law enforcement service. We are tenacious in solving crime and will travel out-of-state if necessary to capture suspects who commit crimes here.  Bishop is an incredible place to live, work, and visit, and the Police Department intends on keeping it that way. It is important to us that residents and visitors feel safe – a reasonable police presence and holding suspects accountable is key to achieving this.

Further, our community outreach and the delivery of police notifications via social media (i.e. free phone app and FB) are exceptional.  We enjoy the positive interactions, especially the tips that help us solve crime.  Our basic deployment goals are:

  1. Reducing crime
  2. Improving quality of life by providing the best possible service
  3. Establishing and advancing Community/Police relationships
  4. Arresting and prosecuting those responsible for committing crimes

Thank you,

Ted Stec
BPD Police Chief
