The Azusa Police Department is working to provide a safe and secure environment for the community. The protection of legal rights of individuals, utilization of pro-active community based policing and problem solving principles, and effective crime fighting are the tools we use to accomplish our mission.
Azusa P.D. leads the City’s Public Safety Department which is comprised of five areas: Police, Fire Services (contracted services provided by the L.A. County F.D.), Office of Emergency Services, Humane Services (contract services provided by the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society), and the Area “D” Office of Disaster Management (regional) coordination.
Public Safety is responsible for those areas which directly influence the quality of life for the residents and businesses in Azusa . In addition to enforcing the laws of our society, the Police Department believes it is equally important to maintain and develop positive relationships with all members of our community. AZPD’s Service Area Commander (SAC) program is an innovative example of AZPD’s commitment to community involvement and outreach. The purpose for this program is to allow individuals to call or email their Area Commander directly for non-emergency police related issues.
