DISCLAIMER

The Fresno State Police Department Policy Manual is guided by Lexipol, which is based on constitutional law and a "best practice" philosophy. Lexipol is the industry standard and is currently used by the majority of California Law Enforcement agencies. 

The Fresno State Police Department policy manual is subject to frequent updates based upon changes in State or Federal laws and/or best practices. As changes occur, the most recent policies will be posted on this web page.
