Selecting an Oro Valley Police Chief

As Arizona’s MOST TENURED Chief of Police, Danny Sharp has developed a succession plan that has produced several highly qualified command officers who are ready and capable of leading the Oro Valley Police and continuing and improving upon Chief Sharp’s community policing philosophy of Service, Accountability, Neighborhood Focus, Problem Solving, and Decentralization (empowerment the rank and file of decisions).

Chief Sharp’s rigorous training program, which includes the requirement that each participating command officer successfully complete and graduate from the FBI national executive training course, insures that each internal candidate has received comprehensive training, has a deep understanding of our culture and community, and will be the most qualified candidate to keep Oro Valley the safest town in Arizona.
