Community Programs


Citizens Police Academy. The Sedona Police Department's Citizen's Academy will provide citizens with an inside look at local law enforcement. The eight-week academy is designed to give citizens an overview of our department's policies and procedures. The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to the traditional police academy, but the weekly sessions are not designed to make the participant a police officer. Get more information here.

Community Awareness Program is a crime prevention program that enlist the active participation of residences, in cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce crime and victimization in their communities. For more information click here.

Drug Disposal Program With the nationwide surge among teens and the abuse of prescription drugs found in the family medicine cabinet, the Sedona Police Department started a medication pill drop off program. Anyone can take their medication pills to the police department front lobby and deposit in the RX drop box. You do not have to leave any personal information when you drop off the pills.  

The department cannot accept any liquids, gels, pastes, needles or the plastic containers that hold the pills. All the pills are taken outside the city and an incinerator is used to destroy the pills. View the protocol sheet.
