During the July 15 Queen Creek Town Council meeting, law enforcement services for the town through the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office were renewed. The sheriff’s office has provided such services since the town’s incorporation 26 years ago in 1989.
The MCSO substation at 22308 S. Ellsworth Road is strategically located in town for effective response times.
“Safety is always a priority,” Mayor Gail Barney said in a press release. “We appreciate the dedicated service of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. We strive to be a safe community and are fortunate to have low crime rates.”
MCSO District 6 – Queen Creek consists of 45 personnel and five patrol beats. In additional to patrol deputies and detectives, the local substation also includes a crime analyst, school resource officer and special service deputies (crime prevention, community outreach and traffic enforcement).
The contracted amount for this level of service is $5.3 million for 2015-16. The town also has access to additional MCSO resources such as K-9s, SWAT, the helicopter and many other investigative and support services if needed.
In an emergency, call 911. To reach MCSO’s non-emergency number, call 602-876-1011.
