Scottsdale Police Recognized for Role in NBA Task Force by quotes

The Scottsdale Police Department’s Investigative Services Bureau is part of a group receiving the Group/Task Force Award for Excellence in Cooperative Law Enforcement on July 22. The award is from the Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee, a Valley group made up of local law enforcement agencies and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
The award recognizes the efforts of several agencies during NBA All-Star Weekend last February.

Increases in violent and property crimes had occurred during previous
All-Star weekends in other cities — that didn’t happen in the Valley.
Incidents were especially low in Scottsdale, even though the city’s
entertainment and shopping districts were near capacity with players,
celebrities and fans. Scottsdale police were assisted by units from Mesa, Chandler and DPS and the Phoenix Emergency Operations Center.

Police Department Accepting Donations for Food Bank by quotes

Residents are invited to join the effort to send hunger packing this summer.

The Scottsdale Police Department is accepting food and cash donations for the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance through July 10.

Donation boxes are at the following locations:

** Downtown District office at 3700 N. 75th St.
** Via Linda District office at 9065 E. Via Linda
** Foothills District office at 20363 N. Pima Road

Your donation will make a difference. The St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance
distributes more food into our community during the summer months, when children are out of school and away from breakfast and lunch programs, than it does during the holidays.
