Don't Fall For It

Some of you may get phone calls asking for donations for Phoenix Police or Phoenix Fire. These are not legitimate! If you want to know how to donate to benefit officers or fire fighters contact the departments directly and they will be able to tell you but don't fall for a phone scam!

    Help Solve the Phoenix Police Manpower Crisis!

    Criminals continue to grow more violent. Every day, the men and women on the front lines in the City of Phoenix face a full-on assault from the criminal element in our city. You and your family continue to be at risk.

    FACT: The Phoenix Police Department is dangerously understaffed with hundreds fewer police officers than in 2008.

    FACT: With 530 square miles to cover, response times for emergency 911 calls can often take 7 minutes or more.

    As you read this, the Phoenix City Council is creating the city’s $3.9 billion annual budget.

    Here are some numbers to put things in perspective:

    The City of Phoenix currently has just under 2,850 sworn officers. Hundreds fewer than 10 years ago.  The City Manager wants to stop hiring when we reach a level of 3,125 officers because “its what we can afford.”

    The real question is how many officers do we need to effectively and safely police a city the size of Phoenix?  Data from the 10 largest cities in the nation (Phoenix is #5) shows the average staffing level is 2.5 officers per 1,000 citizens.  This is an extremely reasonable number, in fact many cities staff at higher ratios.  Based on the current population of Phoenix (1.6M citizens), this would equate to a police force of 4,200 total sworn officers.       

    Phoenix needs to hire more than 1,000 police officers to meet recommended policing best practices and to make up for years of shortchanging public safety.

    How can you help keep our City safe?

    Call or email your Phoenix City Council member today. Tell our city leaders they must increase police hiring now and insist on a ratio of 2.5 officers per 1000 citizens.

    Debra Stark (District 3): 602-262-7441

    Laura Pastor (District 4): 602-262-7447

    Michael Nowakowski (District 7): 602-262-7492

    Kate Gallego (District 8): 602-262-7493

    We cannot solve this problem without citizen support.  Every day the Phoenix Police Department remains understaffed is one more day we risk lives in the City of Phoenix. On behalf of the police officers on the front lines, we want to say loud and clear that this risk is wrong, it’s not sustainable, and it could end up costing our city lives, resources and our reputation as a safe place to live.
