Message from Chief Frank Grgurina

Welcome to the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety Webpage.  In June of 1950, the Sunnyvale City Council made a historic decision to implement a fully integrated Public Safety Department for the purpose of providing police, fire and emergency medical services under one model of service.  While most cities provide these services with three separate departments and little or no service integration, we are able to provide safety and service to our community with highly trained officers all within one department.  This model provides great economic benefits and has withstood the test of time, as it remains one of the largest public safety departments in the country. 

Our unique model of service delivery requires each sworn officer to be fully trained in all three disciplines.  Public Safety Officers (PSOs) are assigned to a specific bureau (Police or Fire), but can be called upon to provide cross bureau services on a daily basis.  PSOs assigned to the Bureau of Police Field Operations are deployed to emergency medical services calls requiring lifesaving measures, as well as all structure fires.  Each carries specialized equipment in their patrol vehicles which allow them to provide non-routine patrol duties such as firefighting and emergency medical services.  PSOs assigned to the Bureau of Fire Field Operations are equipped with law enforcement personal equipment and can be reassigned to a law enforcement incident as needed.  The cross-functional service model extends into our Communications Center where dispatchers are trained in all three disciplines, allowing for a single point of contact and immediate assistance upon receipt of a 911 call.  If the service model sounds amazing, it's because it is.  In addition to police and fire services, the Department provides a multitude of other services such as Fire Prevention, Animal Control, Vehicle Abatement, Crime Prevention, Neighborhood Resource Program, Records Unit and Neighborhood Preservation.  All of these services are provided through a professional staff of over 285 full-time employees and a large cadre of volunteers. 

I hope that you find the information contained within our website informative and helpful.  I am proud to be a member of our organization and honored to be serving the City of Sunnyvale.
