Angels on Patrol was founded in 2009, by Phoenix Police Lt. Jacqui MacConnell after rescuing three children in one of the most horrific abuse cases she had ever experienced in her career as a police officer. Since then, more than 16,000 lives have been touched by Angels on Patrol, with approximately 2,300 people helped each year in cities across the Valley.
Not every call requires an arrest, most times it requires a crisis intervention. Officers want to help beyond their official capacity and oftentimes reach into their own pockets to do so when they encounter barriers. Thats when Angels on Patrol steps in. Helping to stabilize the immediate crisis then connecting to community resources.
Angels on Patrol enables officers to go beyond the call of duty to ensure a family, individual, or child is safe and connected to resources. At-risk youth are given the opportunity to a brighter future through officer-run youth enrichment programming and support.
