Community Police Academy. The 8-week academy provides an inside look at local law enforcement. The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to the traditional police academy. Visit our Community Police Academy page.

Community Watch is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of residents to reduce crime. For more information visit the Community Watch and crime prevention page.

Drug Disposal. Anyone can take their pills to the police department lobby and deposit them in the RX drop box. You do not have to leave any personal information when you drop off the pills. We cannot accept any liquids, gels, pastes, needles or the plastic containers that hold the pills. All the pills are destroyed in an incinerator. View the drug disposal protocol sheet.

Explorer Post 7100 is for career-oriented young adults ages 14 through 21. While the program is part of the Boy Scout of America, the Explorer program is distinctively different from scouting. Visit the Explorer page for more information.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Arizona's events are held in October and SPD's event includes a community picnic at Posse Grounds Park.
