Police Policy and Training

Policy Manual

The Napa Valley College Police Department's policy manual sets forth the performance expectations of department members.  It is recognized that no set of policies, no matter how complete, can address all the situations that may be encountered. This policy manual will serve as a guideline and should be employed with sound discretion, judgement and reason.

This is a living document and subject to change and edits due to new laws, court decisions, district policies, new methodologies, and other factors.  The policy manual on this website will be updated periodically to try and ensure it reflects the current Napa Valley College policy manual.
