Feedback sought on the future of law-enforcement services in Queen Creek

Online form available; Feb. 6 community meeting planned


Following a comprehensive police services study, the Queen Creek Town Council is gathering extensive community input on the future of law enforcement services.

See a video produced by the town here.

As the town has grown to an estimated population of 52,000 with continued commercial growth, it is important to evaluate programs and services, according to a release.

The police services study was conducted as part of the town’s strategic plan and evaluates three options:

  • maintaining the contract with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office;
  • contracting with another law enforcement entity; or
  • starting a municipal police force.

The study focuses on developing a municipal police department and maintaining the MCSO contract as the two most feasible options, and includes a chart comparing the two.

The community is encouraged to read the study and provide feedback.

A community meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, at the Queen Creek Performing Arts Center, 22149 E. Ocotillo Road, to provide an overview of the study and gather feedback.

MCSO District 6 – Queen Creek is the town’s current law enforcement provider, at 20727 E. Civic Parkway. Click here for additional information about MCSO.
