PUBLIC SAFETY IS JOB ONE!
One of the Prescott Police Department’s goals is to enhance the quality of life in the city of Prescott. We do this by working cooperatively with the public to prevent crime, enforce the law, and preserve the peace. We provide a safe environment through professional education programs aimed at promoting community involvement in crime prevention.
Crime Prevention is the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it.
The Police Department wants you to be safe and comfortable in your home and during your daily activities, whether at leisure or at work. Although the department works very hard to create the safest environment possible, it is very important to remember that all citizens play a vital part in crime prevention. Crime prevention is truly a police-community partnership. By working together, we can reduce crime and enhance the quality of life.
