Police Captain - Acting Chief of Police
On behalf of the men and women of the White Mountain Apache Police Department, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in our department. I hope you enjoy navigating our website and find the information that has been compiled on our organizations and service helpful. A police department can never be a success if it does not embrace the needs and desires of the people it serves on a regular basis. Our community members are our largest asset in the fight to prevent crimes of opportunity or misguided personal desire. As we embark on our primary mission of providing for the peace and security for the White Mountain Apache Reservation. We hope that you will support our efforts by contacting the police department when you
believe a crime has been or may be committed. I also urge you to assist your neighbor when he or she has been a victim of such activity. Together we can make a difference.
Our department consists of roughly 24 sworn officers, 13 dispatchers and 20 civilian/support staff. There are several different sections within our department, which includes patrol, dispatch, records, administration, vehicle maintenance, evidence, livestock control, forest rangers, brand inspectors and a SORNA officer. We provide coverage for approximately 1.6 million acres with a tribal populatiojn of about 15,000 enrolled WMAT tribal members.
