The City of San Rafael, like many cities across the country, use Lexipol for their polices. Lexipol is a private company based in California that provides policy manuals, training bulletins, and consulting services to law enforcement agencies, fire departments, and other public safety departments. In 2019, 3500 agencies in 35 U.S. states used Lexipol manuals or subscribed to their services.
All Lexipol policies are vetted through their legal division and cities can edit policies to suit the needs of their communities. San Rafael’s Police Department policies have been customized throughout the policy manual.
