The Hollister Police Department uses Lexipol to monitor and maintain the most up to date and legally acceptable policies that emphasize community safety and the preservation of life.  Lexipol has been creating law enforcement policies for almost two decades that help agencies mitigate risk and protect the sanctity of life.  The national dialogue on police policy, especially as it pertains to use of force, has evolved and increased in intensity. Today, that conversation includes voices calling for police reform as well as voices advocating for guidance reflecting the realities of police work.

To aid in the discussion around policies and police use of force, Lexipol has created a new Police Use of Force resource center. This website includes information for law enforcement and community members including Lexipol’s use of force policy, policy position statements and additional resources.

By sharing Lexipol’s current use of force policy positions, as well as information about how our policies were developed, we hope to engage with community members in the ultimate shared goal of preservation of life and creating safer communities.  Thank you for being a part of this important conversation.

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 info@wiredblue.co.
