Message from the Chief


Welcome to I am proud and honored to have been selected as the new Chief of Police in Chandler, Arizona. My family and I are thrilled to call this vibrant community our home.

Chandler has long been known for its low crime rates, rapidly growing economy, family-friendly atmosphere, exceptional amenities, and proud history. I am deeply grateful to have been selected to serve alongside the dedicated men and women who make up the Chandler Police Department. Together, we will continue to build upon the success of this agency and continue to work with our community. I realize that the success of an agency relies on the strong partnerships we build with those who live, work, and visit our city.

This website will give you an overview of the diverse programs and services we offer our citizens. These include Vacation Watch, the Senior Lockbox, Return Me Safe, the Youth Wilderness Academy, and the Cadet program.

This page will also allow you to access forms to make public records requests, report crimes that are not in progress online, and sign up for the Citizen’s Police Academy or Neighborhood Watch.

Our officers are highly prepared, extensively trained, and deeply involved in the community. We are dedicated to maintaining Chandler as a secure city where residents can thrive in every aspect of their lives. Thank you for exploring our website.
