Murrieta Police Department celebrates 30 years of service with new badge

The Murrieta Police Department will turn 30 years old on August 1. In honor of this celebration, Chief Conrad has authorized a new 30th Anniversary badge to be worn from August 1, 2022, until July 31, 2023.

The anniversary badge is a replica of the department’s first badge created in 1992 but will be silver in color with some modifications added. The anniversary badge will honor the original 34 employees (both sworn and non-sworn) who started working at the Murrieta Police Department in 1992, with the number “34” inscribed at the very top of the badge. 

The badge is available for purchase to uniformed personnel who currently are assigned a badge. The badge will also be available for purchase to those who have retired, in good standing, with the department, in the form of a flat badge with the words “retired” above the “34.” 

The Murrieta Police Department is comprised of 102 sworn police officers, 35 dispatchers, 25 professional staff, and 30 volunteers and explorers. The department maintains a yearly budget of $36 million, which comes from both Measure T proceeds and General Fund monies.  With a population of just over 116,000, the City of Murrieta is the 3rd largest city in Riverside County and the 60th largest city in the State of California. Among cities with a population of over 100,000, Murrieta is consistently ranked one of the safest cities in the U.S.
