The Power of ...

We

As your law enforcement Commander, I want to speak to you about our community. We have a very safe, secure and respectable community due in large part to your efforts as citizens. Occasionally, incidents occur that lead us to feel unsafe when we hear about them. These incidents are few and far between, however. This is where the Power of We plays its part. This requires a partnership with the community and its police department based on trust and effective communication. The Police can’t be everywhere, all of the time. As citizens it

Keep them safe, Keep them on a leash Fountain Hills is a designated Pet Friendly town and with the weather cooling off, our furry friends are ready to be outdoors. With great parks and trails, our hometown offers a multitude of options for walking your pets. As our parks and trails become more popular this time of year, we want to remind all pet owners to abide by our Town Ordinance requiring all pets to be on a leash at all times while in our parks. This rule is for the safety of you, your pet, and other park users. Please do not allow pets to run offleash in our ball fields or open space, as this can create unsafe situations between animals, wildlife, and residents. Our first priority is keeping all of our residents, two or four-legged, safe and healthy. When your pet needs exercise and socializing, we encourage our residents to use our Dog Park at Desert Vista Park. This popular, 3-acre facility allows dogs to run off-leash in a protected, fenced area. This space is designed with two social areas, one intended for larger, more active dogs, and one for smaller, more passive dogs. Please visit the Town website for more details about any of our parks and trails.
