Engaging every element of our community is critical to the department’s goal of remaining one of the safest cities in the country. We strive to provide best-in-class service to make people feel safe in their homes, schools, businesses, and on the roadways. We will serve as law enforcement leaders in protecting and assisting all people in our community through effective problem solving, professional service, and the relentless pursuit of those who victimize our citizens and compromise public safety.
The men and women of the Gilbert Police Department proudly serve our citizens. Our patrol officers and communications employees respond to an average of 180,000 calls for service each year. We have specialty units to address community concerns related to unsafe driving, school safety, and crime suppression.
Complex violent, financial, special victim, and family violence crimes are handled by the highly trained detectives assigned to our investigations teams. Through effective use of technology and resources, we relentlessly pursue those who victimize our citizens. More information to come.
The main goal of our Crime Prevention group is offering programs- such as Neighborhood Watch, Crime Free Multi-housing, and Identity Theft Reduction- to our community, to better prepare and educate our residents about ways to reduce crime where they live and work.
A close connection to the community is vital to the success of our agency. Learn more about how our Volunteer, Gilbert Youth and Adult Resources, Police Cadet, and Citizen Police Academy programs give us a chance to do meaningful work with our citizens.
The respect for individual rights is the basis of our constitution and the cornerstone of our values at the Gilbert Police Department.

A community where people feel safe in their homes, in public places and on our roadways.
