We were so honored to be a part of setting up the Wall That Heals at Riverfront Park. It's hard not to be moved by all it represents.Thank you so much to our public safety partners, Pima County Sheriff, Marana PD, Sahuarita PD, Pima College PD and of course our very own Golder Ranch Fire District. It was really cool to see so many kids visiting and learning about the Vietnam Memorial.

Update to missing Oro Valley man. Asit Ray has been located and is safe. Thanks for your assistance.

Have you seen this man? His name is Asit Ray, 76 Y/O male, white hair and hazel eyes, is from India but lives in Oro Valley. He didn't show up for an appointment at noon and has not returned home. We are told he may have cognitive issues and gets lost often. We suspect he may be driving around Tucson and can't find his way home. Last wearing blue/white striped shirt, dark blue jacket and black pants. He was driving a white, 2006, 4 door Acura. Please call 911 if you see him.

20 years, where have you gone? Congrats to Michelle, our awesome Communications Manager, for celebrating 20 years serving the Town of Oro Valley. Thanks for all you do!

OVPD out at CDO to support Disability Awareness, Spread the Word to End the “R” word. Using the word “Retard” is hurtful and demeaning to those with intellectual disabilities.

Do either of these guys look familiar? The one in the baseball hat is a suspect in a car break in where a gun and credit cards were stolen. Call OVPD at 520-229-4900 or 88-CRIME if you can I.D. them.

We have a very nice ring that was found in December. It was located in the area of Rancho Vistoso and Vistoso Highlands.You will have to be able to describe it in detail and it's pretty distinct. If you think it might be yours, call 520-229-4931.

Oro Valley residents. If you received a text which read "Intermittent 911 issues", please see the post below from the Pima County Office of Emergency Management. The intermittent issues only affected Cox home and business subscribers.

Scam alert.

Today was a rough day for many at the Oro Valley Police Department. Sgt. Troy Kranz (Kranzie) retired after 23 years of service to our community. A man of impeccable integrity and knowledge; he was a leader and friend to many. Often those superior in rank or not even in his chain of command, would turn to him for guidance. He has a brilliant mind and will go on to do amazing things, but will be profoundly missed here. Godspeed V73.

This is cool and we are proud to be partners with y'all in keeping our city safe.

We still have some space in our upcoming RAD class. This is an especially great class for any graduating senior starting college in the fall to feel empowered to defend themselves. It's free, so check out the flyer below and sign up today!

The OVPD will be providing digital child identification "Bio-Docs" for Oro Valley residents. Bio-Docs provide law enforcement with vital information should your child be kidnapped, run away or lost. The Bio-Doc includes a digital photograph, digital fingerprints, personal descriptors and more. This information is given to the parent and then the information is deleted from our system. It is free of charge but you must make an appointment and space is limited. Please call Cassidy Davidson at (520) 229-4964 for more information.

If your child was lost or kidnapped, would you have the presence of mind to give a good description or have access to their fingerprints? We offer FREE Digital Child Identification which provides law enforcement vital information we need for an investigation. Please look at the flyer below for more details. Will still have some room, so call to make an appointment!

Did you know today marks 50 years since the first 911 call was placed? We have come so far since that historic call was placed. Here's a link to the history of the 911 system. https://911saveslives.org/ plus some fun re-enactment pics from almost 20 years ago of dispatcher Dan Rhodes and Communications Manager Michelle DeVault.

School Resource Officer Brown showing his equipment and reading to CDO preschoolers during "community helpers week". Thanks Trey for investing in our kids.

Congrats to Marshall Morris who was promoted to Sergeant today. He started with us in 2004 and throughout his career, has been a leader in DUI enforcement. He holds several professional certifications, has received several awards, but his greatest accomplishment was capturing the heart of Dr. Kim Morris and having two of the cutest kids on this planet. We are so proud of you Marshall. Is it real yet?

Do you ever open your medicine cabinet and say to yourself, "I really need to get rid of this old medication"? Well, time to gather them all up and drop them off at the Target in Oro Valley, this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Even though we poke fun at firefighters because everybody loves them and they get to workout...we truly have a great relationship with our partners at the Golder Ranch Fire District. Thanks for recognizing our guys, much to their chagrin.

We value our kids in our community. Ofc. Keena at Copper Creek spoke with kids over several weeks about what it means to be respectful and kind. She had kids illustrate this through a poster contest and the winners received a gift card, treats and recognition in the assembly. Thanks Ofc. Keena for your leadership and being great example for our kids.

The Chief had a great time reading to kids at St. Marks this morning. Thanks for having us.
