Some events happening soon in our precinct:
The event was a huge success! Prior to the event, North Glenn Square and CMS each had a pallet delivered directly to the precinct. Each pallet is 48 cases of 40 each so their donations were 1900 bottles each for a total of 3,800. On Saturday, we delivered over 20,000 bottles of water and have cash donations of approximately $1,300 which will be used to purchase another 6.5 pallets for an additional 12,480 bottles. There were over 100 cases donated at the event and there was a steady stream of vehicles for the Scouts to unload. In addition to the water, there were boxes and boxes of snack items, valued at approximately $200, that were donated for the Officer Cantina.
It took over 2 hours to unload using the “bucket brigade” method and the halls and patio of the precinct are filled with water.
Below is some of the activity on Saturday morning. A huge THANK YOU to Scout Troop 747 who helped with loading the truck, then unloading at the precinct.
Heads-Up about a special upcoming meeting on Wednesday, June 29
The Cactus Park Community Alliance in conjunction with the Cactus Wren Block Watch has invited the U.S. Department of Justice to speak with our Community regarding their inquiry into our Phoenix Police Department.
We are having a special meeting on Wednesday evening, June 29, 2022 at 5:30PM. This meeting is in-person only and will not be available virtually. (Zoom, etc.)
The DOJ will not be sharing results. They will be discussing why they began the inquiry, what they are looking for, and other such details. They will be soliciting our comments (both positive and negative) regarding our interactions with the Phoenix Police.
Our meeting will be held at the Doubletree Hotel at Metro Center. Doors open at 5:30PM. Our event will begin at 6:00PM.
We will keep you as informed as possible regarding law enforcements efforts to reduce crime and bring law-breakers to justice. Please visit the new Blotter page to see what’s happened recently in our precinct.

Since Council approved our plan to provide officers with more money in their salaries, I’m excited to say, in the days following that vote, one of our recruiters received over 57 voicemails from officers across the Valley looking to make a lateral move to our City! Already, our recruitment numbers are rising, and we’re getting a lot of interest from existing officers and new recruits. While all of this is a promising sign, we’re still in a dire situation! I’ve already been working with Human Resources and PD this past year to rethink how we do recruitment and restructure our thought process on how we can attract the best of the best. I hope to have some updates by the end of the year.
Over the weekend, I volunteered at Operations Blue Ribbon’s first annual Hometown Heroes softball game for our Phoenix PD. The event was orchestrated by Anne Ender with Operation Blue Ribbon and hosted by Luis Gonzalez and the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field. I had such a good time volunteering, and this game was such a morale booster for our officers! Officer Tyler Moldovan made a guest appearance and kicked off the game with the traditional “Play Ball”. Seeing some of our Commanders taking a dive on the field to catch flyballs is a memory I’m going to keep! In speaking with Gonzo, he’s hoping to make this……..
