  • October 8, 2019 - OVPD ANNOUNCES THE 17TH ANNUAL BUSINESS BREAKFAST FOR PROJECT GRADUATION

    Oro Valley Police Department’s Chief Daniel G. Sharp is proud to host the 17th Annual Business Breakfast for Project Graduation. It will be held from 8 - 9 a.m. on Friday, November 1, 2019 at the Hilton El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort. The Hilton has been the corporate sponsor of the Project Graduation Business Breakfast since its inception in 2002. This year’s guest speaker is Chief Daniel G. Sharp.

    Project Graduation is a nationally recognized alcohol and drug-free party designed to give high school graduates a safe alternative to celebrate their special night. Statistics show that graduation night is one of the most dangerous nights of their young lives. Each year, immediately following graduation ceremonies Amphitheater, Canyon Del Oro and Ironwood Ridge High Schools hold Project Graduation events until 5 a.m. the following morning. In the past 16 years, the Oro Valley Police Department has not had any incidents involving our graduates on graduation night thanks to this great program.

Oro Valley has grown from 1,500 residents in 1983 to approximately 43,565 today. The land area has expanded from 4.5 square miles to nearly 36 during the same time. By comparison, the department has grown from 5 commissioned officers to 104 commissioned officers, 31.25 civilians and 2.88 reserve officers. Additionally, we have a volunteer group that is second to none. The dedication, vigilance and professionalism of all members of the Police Department provide for a safe and secure community for all those who live and visit in Oro Valley.

Citizen Survey
In September 2006, in an effort to improve the quality of services, the Oro Valley Police Department created a citizen survey for its constituents. The survey provides a fact-finding medium to determine how the Police Department is doing from the citizens. Patrol officers, volunteers, school resource officers and crime prevention officers distribute the surveys to citizens. The surveys are also available at the Oro Valley Library and the Police Department’s main and north stations. A police volunteer reads and records every returned survey. The information is used to create a monthly statistical summary that is provided to the command staff and placed on the Police Department’s website for public viewing.
