UPD contracts with the City of Holladay to provide all of its police services. We take great pride in serving the residents of Holladay. The Sheriff's Office, and now the Unified Police Department (UPD), has provided law enforcement services to this community for more than 160 years, both as an unincorporated area and as an incorporated city since 1999. Holladay City officials and members of the Holladay Precinct enjoy an excellent working relationship.
The Holladay Precinct is located at Holladay City Hall. Chief of Police Services, Justin Hoyal, oversees the day-to-day operations. Our officers who serve the residents of Holladay have extensive law enforcement experience. The officers assigned to the Holladay Precinct are a highly trained and diverse group of dedicated professionals who have a wealth of experience and expertise. They are committed to solving crimes, improving traffic and pedestrian safety, and operating an engaged community oriented policing (COP) program.
Supervisors and officers assigned to the Holladay Precinct provide around-the-clock law enforcement services to the community. Uniformed patrol officers are the foundation of our public safety services. In order to augment and support our patrol function, we have several specialized units. Our detective unit conducts follow-up investigations on crimes such as; burglary, theft, fraud, and drug offenses. Our community oriented policing (COP) officers assist our detectives with investigations and act as liaisons with the community by managing neighborhood watch programs, spearheading community outreach initiatives, and directing crime prevention programs. We have officers assigned to our traffic unit who provide traffic enforcement and are dedicated to keeping pedestrians and the motoring public safe. Additionally, we have officers assigned to Olympus Junior High, Bonneville Junior High, and Olympus High School to provide for a safe environment conducive to learning.
Our depth is even greater with the support of the department’s specialized teams and units. These groups include: S.W.A.T.; K-9; Investigations Units; Crime Analysis; Collision, Analysis and Reconstruction; and Search and Rescue.
One of our priorities is to address quality of life issues that make Holladay City a great place to live. That’s why we focus on investigating crimes that involve drugs and alcohol, vandalism, graffiti, and burglaries. Our officers work pro-actively with residents, business owners, and schools to help reduce the number of crimes in our area, and in turn along the Wasatch Front. We want our residents to feel safe and know that when a crime occurs we have the resources to resolve the issue.
UPD Holladay Precinct and the City of Holladay are partnering in providing the best, most efficient, and cost effective police services to our citizens.
