Coolidge Police Department News

Coolidge Police Department is proud of and appreciates our officers who are veterans of the military: Officer Phillip Blouir, Sergeant Bobby Williams, Officer Ivan Gonzalez, Sergeant Jason Masterson and Officer Joel Martinez. We honor and thank all men and women who have served and are serving our great country. Please have a safe and happy Veteran's Day weekend! 🇺🇸️ #ThankYou #VeteransDay #America

Coolidge Police Department Sergeant Shanna Martinez proudly represented our department at the Women’s Leadership Conference held in Chandler October 21 through 26.

Today Coolidge Police Department is celebrating three of its finest employees: Debbie Soules, Jill Ashcraft and Kirstin Jeffers. Why? Because it's Law Enforcement Records Personnel Appreciation Day! Our Records personnel are some of the first faces you will see when visiting our station. Every document that gets processed through the department eventually finds its way to Records. These ladies work hard every single day to manage mountains of paperwork and files and requests (oh my!) and they do it cheerfully. (We suspect the true secret of their success and efficiency is the hidden drawer of chocolate they may or may not use to get them through the day.) 😁🍫 With our sincerest gratitude we thank Debbie, Jill and Kirstin for their dedication, hard work and the upbeat spirit they bring to our station. They are all invaluable to our department and very much appreciated!

Attention Coolidge! Your help is needed. Regretfully, we have to report that the Open Hands Food Bank was burglarized last week of all items, leaving them with bare shelves. Being so close to the holiday season, they desperately need donations to fulfill holiday pantry orders to community members by November 16. Donations can be dropped off at their location at 204 W. Central Avenue, City Hall or the Public Library - who is offering $1 in fine forgiveness for each item donated. Items needed are all types of canned goods and non-perishable items in addition to turkeys, chickens and hams. All items delivered to City Hall and the library will be delivered to the Open Hands Food Bank. Please help out if you are able! Every donation counts.

This past Monday, Coolidge Chief Jim Malinski and General Transportation Manager Michael Baker from the Walmart Distribution Center in Casa Grande stopped by West Elementary School for a surprise visit with Principal Maribel Lopez and Assistant Principal Rita Randall and presented them with a check for $1,000.00. Mr. Baker had previously contacted Chief Malinski asking if he knew of a deserving school, and he nominated West Elementary. This particular program is called “Miles for Education” where Walmart drivers are rewarded for safe driving miles over a one-week period, earning the donation funds for schools. Distribution centers may choose a school within their entire service area. Mr. Baker stated, “We are proud to honor our community’s teachers, who give time and often their own money to ensure our students have everything they need to be successful throughout the school year. At Walmart we are dedicated to supporting our nation’s teachers and schools by providing support and resources needed to continue educating the future leaders of our community.” Congratulations Principal Lopez and West Elementary!

When you find the police department at the end of the rainbow...🚔🌦️🌈

You may notice the Coolidge Police Department lit up in purple at night or the purple ribbons on our patrol vehicles in support of Domestic Violence Awareness Month during October. The ribbon magnets were generously supplied to our department by the Pinal County Attorney's Office. If you or someone you know is the victim of domestic violence, help is available. If you are in danger, call 911. #StopDomesticViolence 💜💜💜

Seek Then Speak, a new tool to support sexual assault victims, is now available as a free resource for the City of Coolidge. It is part of a new initiative brought to the community by the Coolidge Police Department. Seek Then Speak helps sexual assault victims and their support people gather information, explore options, and take action. It’s available on the web, via mobile app, or by phone. Each option helps victims better understand what happened, explains their rights, and links them with resources and support. Victims can also begin the process of reporting to authorities or they can remain anonymous. If you know someone who has been sexually assaulted, you may not know what to say or do.You may worry about saying the wrong thing or making things worse. Seek Then Speak can help. Sometimes the best response is the simplest: “I’m sorry this happened. How can I help? For more information, visit

On Tuesday, September 25, Coolidge Police Department will be participating in "Operation Clear Track". The operation is hosted by Amtrak and Operation Lifesaver Inc. to mark National Rail Safety Week. It is a one-day safety initiative that brings police and sheriff’s departments together nationwide to enforce state grade crossing and trespassing laws on America’s railroad tracks. During the 24-hour period you may also observe our officers near railroad crossings within the city handing out educational materials to increase awareness of railroad crossing safety. 🚂🚃

Coolidge citizens in need of sandbags can pick them up at 355 S. 1st Street outside the gate.

The heavy rains have made many Coolidge streets flooded. Please drive with caution and be mindful of any barriers placed for your protection.

The Coolidge Police Department would like to congratulate Commander Mark Tercero on his graduation from the 273 session of the FBI National Academy. Commander Tercero was selected by the FBI to attend this 10 week executive leadership program and is the first graduate from the Coolidge Police Department. Commander Tercero spent the last 10 weeks in Quantico Virginia at the FBI Academy where the training focused on academics, physical fitness, and learning from the experience of 228 other executive law enforcement professionals throughout the United States. The FBI NA selects only 1% of qualified applicants to attend the National Academy. Upon his return Commander Tercero said “I was extremely proud to represent the City of Coolidge Police Department at the FBI National Academy. The education, training and experience I learned will benefit the city for years to come. I couldn’t have accomplished this challenge without the support of my family and the City of Coolidge.” Congratulations Commander Tercero and welcome back to the Coolidge Police Department!
