Message from the Chief: John E. Brooks
Welcome to the Sunrise Police Department's website. Throughout this site I hope to provide you with a glimpse of the Police Department as an organization that is totally committed to excellence and quality service to the community. This commitment, both in the services we provide and the belief that people are our most valuable resource, has been the basis for our organization's successes. As we strive to fortify the foundation in policing and continue to develop relationships with the community, other City departments, and outside agencies, we will continually strive to enhance the safety, security, and our alliances in the years to come.
As of August 1, 2010 your Police Department is comprised of 295 professional employees - of which 182 are sworn police officers - serving the citizens of Sunrise. We have assembled one of the finest teams in law enforcement, whose loyalty and professionalism is demonstrated by its commitment to surpassing the level of excellence we have achieved in prior years. We will never be satisfied with the status quo. We strive to achieve greater decreases in crime and more substantial reductions in the fear of crime and disorder in the community.
The Department is comprised of the Office of the Chief and three Divisions: Administrative Services Division, Criminal Investigations Division, and Uniform Division.
I am confident that in the years ahead we will continue to add to our Department's innovative legacy, and our community will be able to celebrate the fact that Sunrise continues to be a safe community in which to live, work, and entertain.
Chief John E. Brooks
