Chief of Police welcome
Chief David W. McGill
On behalf of the Sedona Police Department, I thank you for visiting our webpage. I have the privilege of working alongside with some of the best police officers, dispatchers, support personnel and volunteers in Arizona Law Enforcement.
The fundamental purpose and role of the police in a free society is to protect constitutional guarantees, maintain public order, prevent and suppress crime, and to dutifully respond to the needs of the community. These words drive our commitment to the citizens and visitors of Sedona.
Public confidence in the criminal justice system depends primarily on the trust that the people have in their police. Police officers are often the primary liaison between the public and the justice system. This means that police officers must be accountable to the people for the decisions they make and the subsequent consequences of their actions. To achieve and maintain public confidence and trust, the police department must be well trained, disciplined and above reproach.
As your Police Chief, it is my responsibility to ensure relationships needed to carry out these principles are developed, nurtured, and continued.
Please explore and enjoy the different areas within the site. As you learn more about the services we provide, know that the Sedona Police Department encourages citizen input and welcome any opportunity to improve our service to the community.
