The Culver City Police Department (CCPD) is the police department in Culver City, California.[1]

The CCPD is a full-service police department and includes more than 160 persons on staff, and serves an area of 5.13 square miles (13.3 km2). The police chief is Don Pederson, who was appointed in 2006.[2]


The Culver City Police Department was founded on November 21, 1917, when the City Trustees provided for the employment of a City Marshal in their 5th resolution. As a result, Frank W. Bradley started work on November 21, 1917. The department did not function as a full-service police department, using the County Jail for prisoners, and having only temporary police officers. Walter Shaw was appointed the first municipal Chief of Police in 1926.[3]

Since the department was formed in 1917, it has had two officers killed in the line of duty, both by traffic accidents. Former LAPD officer Timothy Wind was employed between 1994-2000 as one of its community relations officers, before leaving California in 2000 for Fishers, Indiana.[4]
