Virtual Block Watch

Virtual Block Watch logo

The Phoenix Police Department has launched a new crime fighting program called "Virtual Block Watch". The idea is simple, if you have a security camera let us know that you do. Then, if there is a crime in the area we will know where we might be able to find video footage of the suspect.

Registering your camera not only helps deter crime, but assists the Department in its overall crime prevention strategy in your neighborhood. You aren't granting us control of your camera or sharing control, simply letting us know you have it so we know where another set of eyes are to help us fight crime. You can register and become a part of the program now

The Phoenix Police Foundation [a 501(C)(3)] was established in 2002 with the intent to gain community support for unmet police department capital needs, and provide financial assistance for department employees and their families in times of crises.

During the past 12 years the Foundation has provided emergency assistance for dozens of individuals facing personal tragedies, funding for technology needs for the department, officers' equipment and other various initiatives that help the Phoenix Police Department in its efforts to keep America's sixth-largest city as safe as possible.

Phoenix Police Sergeant Rights a Wrong 60 Years Laterhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/986Police 2/20/2020 8:12:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/986/Newsroom_Cole_Candace_3.jpgPhoenix Police Sergeant Rights a Wrong 60 Years Later<div class="ExternalClass0B32639C5B4E4653B316A02C6C3D6683"><html>​It was a hot Phoenix night last August when Patrol Sergeant Vince Cole first met Candace Ramsey.<br><br>It wasn't the crime report he was taking from her that caught his attention, but a framed Navajo Nation Police Patch.<br><br>As Sgt. Cole asked Candace about the patch, she beamed with pride for the man who wore that patch.  Her grandfather Gordon James was a Sergeant with the Navajo Nation Department of Public Safety more than 60 years ago.  She shared that her grandfather was killed in the line of duty. <br><br>As a member of the Phoenix Police Honor Guard, Sgt. Cole asked Candace if she had gone to Washington DC to see her grandfather's name etched on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.  “His name is not on that wall," Candace said sadly. That's when Sgt. Cole knew he wanted to make that wrong right. <br><br>He got back to the office and put on his historian hat.  His research revealed James was a Korean War Veteran prior to becoming a police officer with the Navajo Nation Public Safety. On August 30, 1960 Sergeant James lost his life in the line of duty, killed by a drunk driver.<img src="/policesite/MediaAssets/Untitled%20design%20(1).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:341px;vertical-align:auto;float:right;" /><br><br>Sgt. Cole reached out to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Foundation.  After 6 months of work, on January 29, 2020, the Foundation informed Candace and her family that Sgt. Gordon C. James would be added to the memorial wall in D.C. on May 13, 2020 during the Annual Candlelight Vigil. <br><br>“I am so proud of my grandfather, it is such a great honor," Candace said.  <br><br>A chance meeting that united two law enforcement families together so one man's heroic actions will never be forgotten.<br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeNewspolice
