A Message from Interim Chief Reynoso
Thanks for stopping by Hollister Police Department's website. Hopefully you will see that your Police Department is dedicated to serving you and your needs. Our motto "In recognition of our duty and to the best of our ability, we serve, protect and educate our community to enhance its overall quality of life" is something we strive to live up to each and everyday.
Whether it is the vast amount of public service or non-for profit organizations that are part of our community or the phone calls of residents with witness statements or information that help police complete their jobs, time and time again our community has come forward to partner with our agency to make Hollister a safe community to raise a family.
I am extremely proud of the men and women of the Hollister Police Department that have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of California and the community of Hollister. In these ever-changing times, they continue to do the best possible work under ever increasing difficulty. Working together we can keep, what I have known since I grew up here, Hollister as a great place to live.

Connect with HPD in a Whole New Way!
Placing your Police Department services at your fingertips!
The Hollister Police Department is using this app to provide you with better service and to improve communication with the citizens of Hollister. With this app you can follow the latest tweets from Hollister PD, send anonymous tips, commend an officer, submit feedback, ask questions, get directions to the police station, and easily find officer contact information. The latest version now offers push notifications, so we can keep you updated with timely information, and also includes links to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the US National Terror Advisory System (NTAS), so you can be aware and ready for any situation.
You can also report problems or give tips regarding parks and recreations, fire, streets, trees, sidewalks, abandoned vehicles and general city related issues.
All of the forms can be sent anonymously to the department, though we encourage an email address or phone number if you would like a response. Users also have the availability to upload photos and GPS information with the app forms (for example a parking issue or graffiti complaint).
As is the case with our other emails, online forms, and social media, this app is not for any type of emergency situation. The Hollister Police attempt to review all messages in a timely fashion but do not always actively monitor all messages and activity at all times.
The app developer, WiredBlue LLC, has more features planned for future releases. Any suggestions and feedback can be directed to the department by using the Questions & Feedback feature on the app with the topic "App Suggestions" or by emailing the app developer directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
