Oro Valley Police Department News

You may ask yourself..."why does this group look so happy"? They are all retired OVPD staff and today Reserve Officer Joel Beck joins them. He served 27 years with the Tucson Police Dept and another 20 as a reserve with us! Congrats Joel. Thank you for your service to the community and welcome to the retired club.

Thanks to everyone for your show of support for law enforcement today. Here are some pics from a breakfast blessing from 4 Tucson and a surprise cake from our council and co-workers at the Town of Oro Valley. It doesn't go unnoticed and we are feeling lucky to serve such an awesome community.

It's hard not to get a little jaded in this line of work, but people like Aaron Johnson sure help put things perspective. We are still working on catching the thief involved in this case. #DoSomethingNice

Loretta and Elizabeth from Brookdale Retirement Home stopped by and brought us donuts for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Thanks so much for thinking of us and Sgt. Pierce...even though your 40 now...you still have a way with the ladies!

This is a 36 hour block of instruction designed to give the public overall knowledge of the OVPD. It consists of twelve classes, taught by sworn officers and civilian staff who work in different divisions.

Our Citizens Academy has opened for 2018! All the cool kids will be there so see the flyer below for details.

Oro Valley residents, please take a look at this advisory from our partners at the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

Do you know these thieves that like to smell good? On 12/31/17, a male and female stole cologne from the Ulta store in Oro Valley. The male is approximately 6 ft. with facial hair and eye glasses and was wearing a black t-shirt and blue jeans. The female was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans and was carrying a white purse. The male and female met up inside the store, selected various colognes and exited the store together, both carrying stolen merchandise valued at approximately $500.00. Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects is asked to call the OVPD at 520-229-4900.

This little lady was found on Tarzana St. (near Moore and La Canada). She had on a pink/aqua harness. Do you know her? She will be at the OVPD for the next couple of hours until PACC comes for her. Call 229-4900 if she is yours or you know the owner.

Thanks to all our Explorer Advisors for making a difference in the lives of young people.

We would love your help identifying this guy. He is a suspect in car busts that occurred in the Rancho Vistoso neighborhood last month. He looks to be in his late teen's or early 20's and his hair is bleached. The suspect vehicle is a newer model gray, 4 door sedan and it has black custom rims. Please call OVPD at (520) 229-4900 or 88-CRIME of you know who he is.

We loved teaching Pusch Ridge High School students self defense this week. Many of these girls are going off to college and will more prepared to avoid or fight. Great job ladies!

We wanted to give kudos to one of our officers who came across a family in need and took action. Ofc. Sarah Leiner scheduled a young, 25 y/o woman to come in and get three car seats installed. During their interaction, Ofc. Leiner learned this sweet gal had taken in her siblings three kids after their father died. She didn't have any kids of her own and now had three, all under the age of three! Ofc. Leiner works in our Community Resources Unit and mobilized her co-workers and our volunteers into action. They were able to donate over 2000 diapers and over $1000 to help this family get started. Merry Christmas from the OVPD family.

One of our favorite days of the year is Shop with a Cop. This event, coordinated by the Oro Valley Fraternal Order of Police, pairs kids who need a little extra help at Christmas with a police officer. The kids get about $225 to spend anyway they like. Most of the time, these kids choose things for their family members or other loved ones. They remind us what Christmas is all about.Thank you Target and Chick-fil-a for your support!

Great work you two. We are proud to work with you.

Congrats to the newest addition of the OVPD family. Officers Greg Chmara and Jillian Bradshaw graduated from the Pima County Basic Law Enforcement Training Academy. We don't mind bragging about Officer Chmara receiving the Academic Excellence award. Shout out to PCSD for all their hard work in getting these officers trained. Now the fun begins!

We love this public safety announcement from our "Partners in Crime". Great reminder when you’re out Christmas shopping.
