FROM THE OFFICE of the CHIEF OF POLICE

        

RAYMOND BURNETTE

The White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation consists of 1.6 million acres of land, (the size of the State of Delaware), with fourteen established Communities, eleven schools and approximately 20,000 permanent residence. This does not include the summer and winter visitors who patronize our ski resorts, camping and fishing areas and the beautiful Hon-Dah Casino and Resort Conference Center. The White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation has two state highways within our jurisdictional boundaries that are thorough fairs to the Towns of Pinetop-Lakeside; Show low, Globe, Greer, Springerville and St. Johns, Arizona.

 

As the Chief of Police of the White Mountain Apache Police Department, I am proud of the men and women who serve our community on a daily basis. The White Mountain Apache Police Department has become one of the finest and professional Police Agencies in the region. The Police Department has thirty sworn Police Officers, (we have our budgeted for thirty-five positions), eleven support service employees and fifteen dispatchers.

 

The White Mountain Apache Tribal Council, the White Mountain Apache Tribe, and the Police Department have formed a partnership to provide the most effective, efficient and professional Police Services to the community and to the cherished visitors who patronize our businesses and amenities yearly.

 

Our “mission” is: SERVE WITH HONOR AND DEDICATION.”
