What Is Tucson Police Department?
The Tucson Police Department was founded on April 22, 1871. The city was one square mile in size and had a population of 3,200 people. By 1921 the department grew from a single marshal to 33 commissioned officers. During this time officers worked 12-hour shifts with an annual salary of $1,800. They were also required to provide their own uniform, badge, gun, ammunition, and they had to be married. Today, the Tucson Police Department has a chief of police and a four-bureau system.
