About the Area (View map):
The Via Linda District (District Three) extends as far south as McDonald Road and borders Phoenix on the west. To the north, this District follows Cactus Road east to Frank Lloyd Wright, then extends about one mile farther north to the McDowell Mountains. Parts of the Via Linda District reach as far east as Palisades Blvd bordering the Town of Fountain Hills. This area also shares an extensive border with the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
The Via Linda patrol area is the City's north-central district, which operates from the police building located at 9065 E. Via Linda. Deployed within the District are seven Patrol Squads, which provide police service twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. These patrol squads include seven Police Sergeants, fifty-three Police Officers and twelve Police Aides. There are also three Lieutenants or "Watch Commanders" who supervise the various shifts to ensure proper service delivery.
The make up of the Via Linda District is primarily residential, with various thriving retail and commercial centers. Many of the city's finest resorts, restaurants, and Frank Lloyd Wright's world-famous Taliesin West are within the district. There are also many parks and golf courses, including McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, Mountain View Park and Scottsdale Ranch Park. The personnel covering this area are committed to providing the highest level of professional service to the community we serve.
