Sheriff Holiday Message
I would like to wish all our residents a safe and happy holiday season. I want to thank our community for your support and I especially want to thank our Officers and Civilian staff for all the excellent work they do every day. Their professionalism and dedication does not go unnoticed. The Unified Police Department is proud of the relationship and partnership we have with our community. We understand to be successful in public safety we need your help through working together and partnerships. This past year, the Unified Police Department experienced a change in command; Sheriff Jim Winder left before his term was completed and I, Sheriff Rosie Rivera, became the new CEO over the Unified Police Department. With the change, there have been some administrative changes. Chief Jacob Peterson was promoted to the Chief of Police Services of our Riverton Precinct and Chief Randy Thomas was promoted to the Chief of Police Services of our Midvale Precinct. We also saw a change in City Administrations across the Valley with many new Mayors and Councilmembers elected into office effective January 2018. I would like to thank all the outgoing Mayors and City Councilmembers for their support and partnership they have had with the Unified Police Department in the past years. I look forward to working in partnership with our new Mayors, Councilmembers and our communities to accomplish great things in the future!
