On behalf of the members of the Arizona Western College Police Department, I welcome you to our web site. AWC PD Police officers are fully Arizona state certified and have the same authority and responsibility as any other police officers in the state. Our primary jurisdiction is the main campus and outlying college properties, including the Redondo and Parker sites. However, through established agreements, we also take action as needed and provide assistance to other law enforcement agencies in the areas adjacent to our jurisdiction.
It is our hope that as you browse through our web page, you will learn about programs that encourage citizen participation in a community policing environment. Furthermore, the police department cares deeply about the Yuma and La Paz Counties communities it serves. I am proud to say that each of our employees is dedicated to providing for the safety and security of all of our students, parents, faculty, employees, and guests who live, work, and visit our institution.
We look forward to your questions, comments, and suggestions. Thank you for visiting the AWC Police Department web page.
John R. Edmundson
Chief of Police
