Introducing The Azusa Police Department
Learn more about your police department, it's history and the men and women behind the badge.
Through years of service, experience and training, the department has become a leading law enforcement agency. We believe we provide the best police services to our residents, business owners and visitors.
Through these challenging economic times, the Azusa Police Department has been able to maintain a high standard of service, due in part to city leaders and the department's command staff.
Starting from the early 30's, our department has a rich history. From being patrolled on horseback by the LA County Sheriffs, to the first radio in a patrol car, there have been many changes over the years.
Our department procedures and culture has been forged by the brave men and women who walked our hallways and patrolled our streets before the officers of today were even born.
Our Training Program
The Azusa Police Department maintains a commitment to the community to provide only the finest law enforcement officers to watch over them as they work, sleep, and play.
Every police officer in our department takes pride in the fact they were able to qualify for a position on our team. Our requirements are regarded as being some of the highest in the nation.
Our department is led by our 13th Chief Of Police, Chief Steve Hunt. Chief Hunt's Command Staff consists of one captain and one lieutenant, who operate directly under the chief. Captain Sam Fleming oversees the support services division, while Lieutenant Paul Dennis oversees the administrative division.
