Public safety involves protecting the public — safeguarding people from crimes, disasters, and other potential dangers and threats. In Gila Bend, public safety is the dedicated responsibility of local organizations and local departments. This includes the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department, security contractors, emergency response teams, the Gila Bend Fire Department and Gila Bend Emergency Medical Services, and more. No matter the role, the primary goal of our public safety professionals is to prevent danger and to protect the wellbeing of our citizens, our communities, and our organizations.
