Press Conference Nov 2018
"The MPD has issued the attached media release to address questions about MPD policies related to police use of force. The eight policies were discussed at a town hall meeting that former President Obama held on June 3, 2020 and are found on his webpage. These policies have also been referred to as the "8 Can't Wait." The MPD has had policies and practices in place for years relating to the most contemporary and professional aspects surrounding use of force. Additionally, the MPD is updating policy to further enhance what was previously in place. The attached media release goes into greater detail surrounding the policies, training, practices and commitment to serving everyone with honor, dignity, fairness and respect. " - Chief Hober
A message from Mayor Roberson:
"Beautiful Monterey is a special place to live, work, and visit, and one of the important reasons for this is the preservation and appreciation of our historical assets. As we go forward to celebrate the 250th birthday of our city which we all love and care for together, we know that history plays an important role in keeping our small town feeling and cultural diversity."
"This will surely be a historical remembrance and a year none of us will ever forget. Let this be not only a birthday celebration of our special city, but a healing time for all of us during this difficult time."

Please note: We will reschedule some of the events planned for the birthday prior to the pandemic, at dates yet to be determined.
Monterey turns 250 years old on June 3, 2020. The City of Monterey has planned for this “never again” occasion for at least the past three years. Celebrations for several unique, featured, and year-long events to take place throughout the year were suddenly halted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We decided to celebrate this important and historic event in the best way possible – virtually and gathering four living mayors spanning five generations. These dynamic leaders of our time will talk about the significance of our beautiful city to the establishment of California, the changes, challenges, and opportunities faced by each generation, the uniqueness of our international culture, the importance of our military as well as our fishing industry, and much more.

The State’s Stay at Home and Monterey County Health Department’s Shelter in Place orders required the temporary closure of many of the City’s facilities and the cancellation of many cherished community programs and services, including those provided by the Monterey Public Library, Monterey Sports Center, four community centers, and the Monterey Conference Center.
