Mission Statement and Purpose

The mission of the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians Tribal Police Department is to protect individual rights, to build trust, safety, peace and cooperation within the community. Our purpose is to provide a safe environment for Tribal Members and visitors, while also protecting the lands, culture, heritage and sovereignty of the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians.



The Shingle Springs Tribal Police Department is committed to providing the highest levels of customer service to its members and visitors, while constantly improving the quality of life that the Tribal Community desires and deserves.


The Police Department enjoys a positive relationship with its Tribal Community and takes every opportunity to interact and engage residents and visitors. The department enforces both Tribal ordinances and applicable federal laws on the reservation and works closely with other law enforcement agencies to maintain a safe environment on the Shingle Springs Rancheria.  In addition to sworn Tribal Police Officers, the department employs non-sworn Public Safety Officers to assist in many areas, such as crime prevention, community outreach and building security.


All Tribal Public Safety Officers are California BSIS certified and sworn Tribal Police Officers are hired and trained to the standards of the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST).
