Welcome to the Ventura Police Department Website

What's New - Can You ID Me?

We’ve set up a Can You ID Me page with the purpose of asking members of our community for your help in identifying the individuals shown, or providing potential information about, the alleged incidents.  
The subjects in the photographs shown are persons of interest, witnesses or potential suspects involved in particular incidents.  Do you recognize any of them? Maybe you’ve seen their picture online, met them in a park or at a party, or recognize them from somewhere else?  If so, we want to hear from you, but if you’d rather remain anonymous that’s okay, you can always submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers and if your information leads to an arrest you could receive a cash reward of up to $1,000.

Please visit the link for additional information and details and thank you for your help. Working together we can reduce crime and make a difference in our community.
