The City of Tucson is divided into five patrol divisions. Each division is divided into sectors, which are designated by the numbers on the map. When contacting a patrol division about a concern in your neighborhood or place of business referring to the sector number may speed your inquiry.
On July 28, 2002, Operations Division Downtown was founded as the newest division of the Police Department in over thirty years. Since that time, it has expanded in both its geographic size as well as the scope of its mission. The staff includes a captain and secretary, two lieutenants, six sergeants, approximately fifty officers, one detective, a criminal intelligence officer, three marshals, and four community service officers. Additionally, three motorcycle officers are assigned from the Traffic Section to assist with traffic problems in the division.
Members working in the team accomplish their mission using a community policing philosophy and a variety of assignments that include Motors, Bikes, Walking Beat, Headquarters Security, Prisoner Transport, Court Security, and Community Service. The eclectic mix of division personnel and their excellent work ethic all contribute to providing the highest level of service to this unique area of our community.
The goal of the Downtown Division is to work in a cooperative effort with stakeholders and community partners to provide a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for all people in the area. This includes the numerous visitors to the central business district who come to partake in its many cultural focal points such as the Tucson historical district, Fourth Avenue, the Tucson Convention Center, and the Temple of Music and Art.
