The Glendale Police Foundation provides funding to:

  1. Bullet  Support Glendale Police Department operations and promote public safety.

  2. Bullet   Strengthen community/police partnerships.

  3. Bullet   Encourage innovations.

  4. Bullet   Promote officer safety.

  5. Bullet   Recognize and honor heroism, valor, and outstanding achievements.

The FBI released a recent report naming Glendale one of the safest cities in the nation.  This doesn’t happen by magic. Each year, our Police Department is asked to do more for public safety with fewer officers and less funding. Result:  GPF provides the tools, training, technology and equipment that might otherwise go unfunded.

Glendale Arsonist Arrested

On January 26, 2015, the Glendale Police Department arrested Stevan Skendzic,19, on arson charges relating to 27 fires between January 2014 and January 2015 in Glendale.

In January 2014, the GPD began investigating the fires in the South Command Area during the nighttime and early morning hours. The fires consisted mostly of discarded rubbish left on the sidewalk and alleys. Several dumpster fires in alleys had been reported and investigated.

“This is another exemplary and tenacious investigation by the members of the Glendale Police Department. The detectives and officers utilized investigative and technical resources to apprehend and remove this dangerous individual from our community,” said Chief Robert Castro. “Arson investigations are difficult and dangerous. We are pleased Stevan Skendzic is in custody, and there were no injuries or deaths as a result of his dangerous behavior.”

I am optimistic that 2015 will be an even better year for GPD and that together we will advance and adapt our organization to continue to provide excellent service to our community.

We all know that working together, the GPD and community can produce amazing results.
