The successful candidate will be committed to using current data-driven policing strategies and applying the principles of community policing to reduce crime and deliver a high level of police services to all residents of Tucson.

With a population of 526,000 covering an area of 250 square miles, Tucson is the 33rd largest city in United States. Located 65 miles from the Mexican border in the Sonoran Desert, Tucson is surrounded by five mountain ranges: the Tucson, Santa Catalina, Rincon, Santa Rita, and Tortolita ranges. With a diverse immigrant population, the city prides itself on its unique heritage and its commitment to inclusiveness.  Boasting an average of 350 sunny days a year and warm dry air, Tucson’s climate is ideal for year-round outdoor recreation.

Tucson is home to the University of Arizona—a campus of more than 42,000 students—and annual events that draw participants and spectators from around the world. Tucson’s Old West heritage serves as a backdrop to its current status as a modern city that is a destination for nearly 7 million visitors a year; a place known for outstanding hiking and outdoor adventures, a vibrant arts scene, fine golf courses, restaurants, and other attractions.

The Tucson Police Department is authorized at 1,002 sworn and 317 non-sworn positions, with a budget of $168 million.  Currently 940 sworn positions and 277 non-sworn positions are staffed.  The department responds to approximately 300,000 calls for service annually.

  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills, and a demonstrated capacity to be visible within the department and out in the community.
  • A demonstrated aptitude for creative problem solving, particularly in light of funding constraints.
  • Ability to maintain a proactive approach to policies and practices, consistent with the history and culture of Tucson.
  • Experience and a commitment to identifying and implementing policies, strategies, systems and technologies to optimize the delivery of police services to a diverse community, in a fair and consistent manner.
  • Exceptional organizational and management skills, including the ability to build a strong leadership team in light of upcoming command staff retirements.
  • A track record and proven commitment to staff development and department-wide diversity and training.
  • Experience in developing effective labor-management relationships.
  • Extensive experience in the many aspects of contemporary policing practices in a diverse urban community.

The position requires a four-year college degree, progressively responsible command-level experience in policing in an urban community, and knowledge of best practices in policing.
