Scottsdale PD on Patrol
The Scottsdale Police Department has divided the city into four police districts. We deploy our officers within these districts to best meet the current needs of the community.
Uniformed Services Bureau
The Scottsdale Police Department’s Uniformed Services Bureau is the most visible component of the police department, consisting of the patrol and specialty units you see on city streets and in neighborhoods.
While the majority of our patrol officers work in our patrol and traffic enforcement sections, we also staff specialty units including a K9 Unit, Mounted Unit and Bicycle Unit.
Our School Resource Officer Unit provides service for the students and staff at more than 30 schools.
The City of Scottsdale has used photo enforcement technology since 1996 to supplement police department efforts to reduce red-light running and speeding.
Scottsdale off-duty police officers can be hired by the public to perform security and traffic control services. Officers are often hired to provide security and traffic control at large and small events, traffic control for projects in the roadway, security for meetings, and many other situations.
Investigative Services BureauScottsdale Police Department’s Investigative Services Bureau comprises the investigative, forensic and crime prevention units focused on preventing crimes, and solving crimes that occur in Scottsdale.
Operational Services Bureau
The Operational Services Bureau supports the department logistically and administratively, handles recruitment and personnel, strategic planning, police records and crime analysis.
A commitment to our community
The Scottsdale Police Department is committed to the highest standards of our profession and customer service.
We are an internationally accredited agency
Every three years the Scottsdale Police Department voluntarily submits to a rigorous inspection and assessment by the independent Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies .
The accreditation process greater accountability within the department and creates a forum through which citizens and police work together collaboratively to guide the department forward.
