Chief Dan Doyle

Welcome to the Lake Havasu City Police Department. We have the privilege of presenting the programs and accomplishments of the department and the many members that dedicated themselves to make our community a safe and crime free place to live and work. We continue to strive to provide the highest quality of police services available. As stated in the department mission statement we are committed to ensuring a safe and secure community.

The Lake Havasu City Police Department was founded in July of 1979 and in a relatively short period of time has grown to become one of the leaders in progressive police services in the state of Arizona. Lake Havasu City Police Department employees possess strong values that emphasize ethical behavior, principled decision making and unparalleled commitment to the community.

The Lake Havasu City Police Department is committed to the concept of Community Oriented Policing and has incorporated this concept into every facet of operation. Community Oriented Policing has many varied definitions but is generally considered a philosophy that promotes proactive community partnerships to address the root cause of crime and fear as well as other community and police problems. The hope is that by using this method, the underlying problem will be eliminated or reduced to the point that citizens are satisfied and the police will not have to return. One of the cornerstones of our community policing effort is the Neighborhood Watch program. Neighborhood Watch is not only the eyes and ears of a neighborhood, but a process by which neighbors can develop relationships and become a partner in the crime fighting efforts.

As one of the newer police departments in the State of Arizona, we are a young, expanding police department where opportunity abounds. If you are interested in a career in law enforcement, we welcome you to consider joining our department. Standards are high, but the rewards of serving a growing community in a professional organization are many.

Please review the various programs that are part of this site and if you have comments or questions, I encourage you to contact us or leave us a message.

We hope you find our web site useful and informative. As special topics or problems arise we will make that information available. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. I look forward to working together to create a safe and secure environment for the citizens and guests of Lake Havasu City.

On Tuesday, December 18, the Lake Havasu City Police Department provided free training to local gas station owners and gas station employees in response to the recent gas pump skimmers being found in our community.  The purpose of the training was to create awareness and partner with local fuel stations to identify and stop criminal activity.

The training was held at the Lake Havasu City Police Department and was not open to the public.   All local stations were contacted and provided with an opportunity to attend. The training was instructed by Lake Havasu City Police Detective Robert Shoemake and offered insight into what a skimmer looks like, how to recognize if a pump has been tampered with and measures to take to help safeguard gas pumps and the community.

The Lake Havasu City Police Department would like to thank those businesses that attended including the Circle K stations on Kiowa Blvd., Industrial Blvd. and Lake Drive, along with Tri-M Mini Mart, Campbell Cove 1-Stop, Maverik, London Bridge Chevron and Zip Fuels. 

The Lake Havasu City Police Department continues its investigation and is trying to identify those responsible for installing the skimmers.  Additional information regarding skimming devices can be found at the Arizona Attorney General’s website https://www.azag.gov/consumer/card-skimmers.

If you see suspicious activity, especially around any gas station pumps, you are encouraged to contact the police department.  Silent Witness will pay a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect(s) involved.  Anonymous information can be called into Lake Havasu Silent Witness at 928-854-TIPS (8477). Citizens can utilize the police department’s anonymous text messaging tip service by texting LHCPD and your message to “CRIMES” or 274637.  Tips can also be submitted anonymously through a web page based tip service at www.tipsoft.com or via the “TipSubmit” mobile application. Anyone using Android, Windows or Apple platforms can download the LHCPD app and submit a tip through the app as well.
