law enforcement services for the
Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation
Welcome to the Fort McDowell Police Department
Using the principles of community oriented policing, our mission is to provide public safety and law enforcement services through community partnerships to enhance the quality of life for the Yavapai Nation. We value Integrity, Professionalism, Teamwork and Leadership.
Enforcing Tribal, State, & Federal Laws
We are a twenty-four hour law enforcement agency responsible for enforcement of tribal, state, and federal laws. Our officers are certified by the Arizona Peace Officers Standards & Training Board (AZPOST) and hold a special law enforcement commission (certification) with the Bureau of Indian Affairs – Office of Justice Services. We investigate all tribal, state and federal crimes and present our findings to the tribal, state and federal court jurisdictions as appropriate. We hold a partnership with other tribal, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
We place the utmost emphasis on efficiency and professionalism. Starting with the Chief of Police, our goal is to be a professional police department that is responsive to the needs of the community. We carefully select our employees and hold them to high standards of professionalism and integrity. We endeavor to maintain the mission of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, which is to “Provide a Safe and Secure Community.” Thank you for visiting our site.
