Message From the Chief
William Dobberstein
Chief of Police

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Fortuna Police Department‘s web site. As a Department that emphasizes professionalism, integrity and fairness, it is our goal to work with the citizens of Fortuna and other agencies in an effort to improve the overall quality of life in our community.

The Fortuna Police Department currently has 27 full-time employees and many volunteers that are each committed to providing the highest level of police, parking, code enforcement and animal control services. We are guided by a community oriented policing philosophy and stress the importance of working as leaders in our community and building relationships based on trust .

I am extremely proud of the men and women that comprise the Fortuna Police Department. Historically, crime statistics in Fortuna are lower than the statewide average for comparable cities.  This trend is due to strong community support and the outstanding efforts of Police Department staff.   

I encourage you to browse our website to learn more about our department and the services we provide. I welcome any suggestions or comments regarding our services.

Together, in partnership with the community, we will continue to make the City of Fortuna a great and safe place to live, visit and do business.


William Dobberstein
