Enforcing Tribal,
State, & Federal Laws

We are a twenty-four hour law enforcement agency responsible for enforcement of tribal, state, and federal laws. Our officers are certified by the Arizona Peace Officers Standards & Training Board (AZPOST) and hold a special law enforcement commission (certification) with the Bureau of Indian Affairs – Office of Justice Services. We investigate all tribal, state and federal crimes and present our findings to the tribal, state and federal court jurisdictions as appropriate. We hold a partnership with other tribal, state and federal law enforcement agencies.

We place the utmost emphasis on efficiency and professionalism. Starting with the Chief of Police, our goal is to be a professional police department that is responsive to the needs of the community.

We carefully select our employees and hold them to high standards of professionalism and integrity. We endeavor to maintain the mission of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, which is to “Provide a Safe and Secure Community.” Thank you for visiting our site.
