The Town of Queen Creek Celebrates Local Law Enforcement
The Town of Queen Creek is joining communities across the United States to celebrate National Police Week, May 12-18. National Police Week provides an opportunity to thank law enforcement, and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office District 6 – Queen Creek provides law enforcement services to the Town of Queen Creek.
“I am thankful every day for the professional and committed deputies we have protecting our community,” shared Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney. “This week is a somber reminder of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I encourage the community to take this opportunity to thank the individuals who risk their lives every day to help keep Queen Creek safe.”
As the Town’s law enforcement provider, MCSO District 6 Queen Creek includes a dedicated substation in Queen Creek’s Town Center. MCSO District 6 utilizes a community based policing model, which takes a proactive approach and increases partnerships and community engagement.
