There have been many changes in the last decade and a half in the Town of Prescott Valley. Since 2000 to 2017 the Town population grew from 20,000 to 44,000 residents. To provide homes for this population, multiple thousands of houses have been constructed and many new streets have been added. The number of businesses has grown. The demographics of the community have changed as well. We are growing younger and more diverse.
Just as the Town has grown, so has the Prescott Valley Police Department. In 2011 the Town’s population was just under 39,000 and the total staffing of the police department was 76, made up of 61 sworn personnel and 15 civilians. Today there are 100 employees, made up of 76 sworn personnel and 24 civilians.
With the growth and changes in the community, Chief of Police Bryan Jarrell felt that it was time to revisit the mission, vision and values of his department. In order to accomplish this task, he involved all members of the department requesting their input in moving forward. After many meetings and discussions from each unit of the department, the following mission, vision and values have been established.
Mission: It is the mission of the Prescott Valley Police Department to protect and preserve the rights of all people through impartial, courteous, and compassionate law enforcement.
Vision: It is the vision of the Prescott Valley Police Department to evolve with our dynamic community, provide the highest level of service and safety to our deserving citizens, and collaborate with our community and regional partners to identify areas of needed improvement. We will accomplish this vision by providing our members with the tools and knowledge to meet the present and future needs of Prescott Valley within the scope of police services.
