Seaside Police Chief

On behalf of the Seaside Police Department I want to welcome you to our web site. Whether you are a visitor or a resident, we look forward to meeting your needs. Our staff of twenty officers, a community service officer, and nine dispatchers work hard to provide a safe and secure place to visit and live.

The City of Seaside is a unique city with a of a little over 6,000 and a tourist destination for people from all over the world. Our summer and weekend population often swells to 15,000 people and on special event weekends, it can grow to over 30 to 60 thousand people. This creates some unique challenges for the men and women of the Seaside Police Department.

The Seaside Police Department is able to meet our unique challenges because of the partnership we have with our community and the hard work and dedication of its members. Our goal is to be recognized as a trusted and respected agency by the community and our peers.

I hope you will take the time to explore our web site and return often to see our updates and ongoing changes that will provide even more information to our community members and visitors.

I am proud to work for a City where meeting community needs is a priority and where our officers are part of the community they work in.

Robert Gross - Chief of Police
