A huge honor for Prescott’s top cop. The Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police (AACOP) announced Prescott Police Chief Amy Bonney has been named Arizona’s Chief of the Year. Last Friday, Chief Bonney received the award from the AACOP President during the association’s annual business meeting in Mesa, Arizona. She was nominated by her peers and selected based on her achievements as a law enforcement leader, her contributions to the association, and her service to the community.
The nomination highlighted several accomplishments Chief Bonney achieved over the past two years while serving the community and the department. She led the initiative to establish the Facility K9 program for the Victim Services Unit, which aids victims of major violent crimes. Prescott Police Department became the first agency in Yavapai County to have a full-time facility K9 responsible for assisting victims of violent crimes.
Prescott Police Deputy Chief Jon Brambila said, “There is no Chief in Arizona more deserving of this award than Chief Bonney. She has a servant’s heart, and we are proud to have her as our leader.”
