The community of Sutter Creek has always been supportive of our efforts to keep the City of Sutter Creek a wonderful place in which to live and work. If we continue to work together to develop and foster new partnerships, I believe we will be successful in building an even stronger community.

In 2015, The Sutter Creek Police Department launched its own police cadet program. The first cadet academy was a huge success and we now have three young people learning to become tomorrow’s leaders and serve the community. We have plans to roll out additional community outreach programs in the future that will lead to continued partnering between our community and the police department.
