A resident survey shows that 94% percent of residents rated the Town of Sahuarita Police Department positively. Residents reported feeling safe from violent crime and gang activity. Sahuaritans also reported feeling safe in commercial areas throughout the day, and at night in their neighborhoods.
Residents feel safe with a rating of 97%, up from 2013 when 89% of residents polled said they felt safe from violent crime. Feeling safe from property crime is also on an upward trend with a gain of 17 points since 2013, now at 91%. The perception of community safety correlates to the survey’s results defining Sahuarita as a good place to live (95%) and raise children (96%).
Chief John Noland says it's residents, the hard work of employees, and teamwork that are responsible for these positive results. "Making Sahuarita a Safe Place to Live, Work, and Play is the mission of SPD," Noland said. "This mission matches the town’s strategy in making Sahuarita a community of choice."
Town Manager L. Kelly Udall commends the police department for the leadership and organizational effectiveness that brings about such results in the town. “We really have to hand it to our dedicated and hard-working officers, and their command staff,” Udall said. “Keeping Sahuarita safe dovetails perfectly with all other areas of the town’s strategy toward positive growth and community building.”
The 2018 Citizen Survey was conducted throughout the month of April, and over 900 residents responded, which exceeded projected goals. For further, more detailed information about the resident survey results, please review the survey report.
