The Moab Police Department consists of nineteen (19) Sworn Police Officers, three (3) Code Enforcement Officers, one (1) Code Compliance Specialist, one (1) Animal Shelter member, two (2) Victim Advocates, three (3) civilian staff members, and one (1) part-time crossing guard.
Recruiting and retention are a priority for the MPD. It is our goal to be fully staffed by the end of 2023, and to establish a consistent and professional police department which fosters opportunity for continued growth and development.
We are committed to building and maintaining strong partnerships within our community. We are fortunate to have an abundance of community service providers and entities in our community. We recognize the critical role we serve to provide public safety and we strive to be a reliable partner to our community members, leaders, and other stakeholders to engage those in need.
We are also committed to providing consistent and comprehensive public safety information to the community, providing better opportunities for positive engagement, and sharing information related to law enforcement activities in our community.
We recognize we cannot build strong relationships from the inside of a patrol vehicle or our police station. Moab Police Department will take a mindful approach to interact with the public through bike and foot patrols in our most frequented areas.
The MPD will partner with our local law enforcement partners, community, and school administrators to ensure our children can grow up in safe schools and a safe community.
