Chief FinlaysonWelcome to the Springville Department of Public Safety. Over 100 employees and volunteers work to keep you safe in our community. We are proud of the accomplishments and hard work our Police, Fire & Rescue and Emergency Preparedness employees and volunteers perform each year.

The Springville Department of Public Safety has always strived to represent excellence. One way we do this is by staying one step ahead. We strive to anticipate trends so we can be proactive in all areas, and take action before we have to react to crises. We must always stay a step ahead by planning for future staffing needs, using technology wisely, and being prepared for lean budget times.

We must also always remember our most important way to stay a step ahead of public safety issues is through open communication with the community we serve. You, the community, are our best eyes and ears for what is happening in your neighborhoods, as well as helping us find ways to keep you safe. Working with you in an open and collaborative manner also holds us accountable which benefits the community most.

Help us stay a step ahead by keeping yourself informed, and letting us at the Springville Department of Public Safety know your concerns and ideas.

Chief J. Scott Finlayson
