Our Mission: To provide a safe community where people can live, work, and thrive.
I am pleased to present our 2016 Annual Report. Last year, the men and women of the Chandler Police Department continued to carry out our mission of ensuring Chandler remains one of the safest cities in America. We realize there are many variables that contribute to Chandler’s safe-city status, such as our very dedicated and talented employees as well as strong support from our Mayor and Council.
We also realize that, in order for us to continue to accomplish our mission, we must have the confidence, support, and respect of the people who visit, live, and work in our city.
So last year, we reviewed the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing Report and identified recommendations that will help us strengthen trust with our community and continue to provide effective police services.
We also achieved a number of significant accomplishments.
Developing and maintaining community partnerships is the cornerstone of our system of policing in Chandler, so I want to thank all of you who worked alongside us this past year helping us safeguard our city.
I am very proud of our Police Department and what we accomplished last year, and I look forward to continued successes and achievements throughout 2017.
The Chandler Police Department is committed to being a world-class leader in law enforcement. We will pursue and engage the best trained, equipped, and committed professionals who demonstrate the highest standards of performance and best policing practices in partnership with the community.
The Chandler Police Department employs 324 sworn officers and 169 civilians who serve a growing population of over 250,000 residents. There are six police facilities to meet the needs of the community: the Chandler Police Department Main Station, the Desert Breeze Substation, the Chandler Heights Substation, the Property & Evidence Building, a newly re-purposed SWAT facility, and a large vehicle storage building.
