The Tucson Police Department is committed to maintaining our history of excellent communication with the community, by providing timely, relevant, and empowering information, in addition to soliciting tips and welcoming feedback. We have developed and used a variety of methods to meet these goals over the years. Currently, we use a diverse range of communication methods intended to reach the broadest possible audience as efficiently as possible.

This includes using a balanced blend of more traditional means, such as print newspapers as well as current electronic and social media-based platforms including Twitter and Nextdoor.com.

In keeping with this approach, we will also continue to evaluate new social media or technology-based methods for suitability, efficiency, and effectiveness. As with any online, social media, or business activity, we encourage everyone to make informed decisions before signing up for, or providing personal information to a third party.
Any reputable company should make their privacy practices readily available for your review before you sign up or provide personal information. We will continue to communicate across a wide variety of methods because we recognize that effective communication is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Below is a list of some of TPD's currently used public communication methods. We encourage you to decide which one(s) work best for you!
