Policy Manual

The Elk Grove Police Department's Policy Manual is guided by Lexipol, which is based on constitutional law and a "best practice" philosophy. Lexipol is the industry standard and is currently used by the majority of California Law Enforcement agencies.

The Elk Grove Police Department policy manual is subject to frequent updates based upon changes in State or Federal laws and/or best practices. As changes occur, the most recent polices will be posted on our webpage.

Disclaimer: Certain policies relating to sensitive security, tactics and officer safety issues have not been disclosed in accordance with California Government Code Section 6254(f), 6254(aa) and 6254(ab).
