Welcome to chandlerpd.com, the official website of the Chandler Police Department. Chandler is a world-class destination with low crime rates, exceptional amenities, and a proud history. I am honored to serve alongside the men and women of the Chandler Police Department, who understand that, in order for us to successfully accomplish our mission, we must have the confidence, support, and respect of the people who visit, live, and work in our city.
As you explore this site, you will learn about the diverse programs and services available to our citizens, from Youth Wilderness Academy to the Senior Lockbox program and everything in between. Of particular interest to parents, teachers, counselors, care-givers and day-care workers is our new Guardian Academy which provides education, information, and access to resources that promote and reinforce healthy relationships and communication within families.
Recently added to our website is online reporting, an optional service designed to allow you to report a crime that is not in progress. This feature helps free up beat officers to respond more quickly to priority calls for service.
Also, I suggest you visit our “Moments of Truth” page to read about some of the remarkable work our officers and civilian staff do every day.
We are committed to ensuring that Chandler remains a safe city where people want to live and work. Our officers are well-equipped, highly-trained, and engaged in the community. Our employees are a dedicated and enthusiastic group of professionals who take great pride in their work. Thank you for your interest.
