Also managed by the Police Department are two animal control officers, an animal shelter manager, and one crossing guard.

Community Involvement

The Moab City Police Department has actively participated in the Drug Abuse Resistance and Education, or D.A.R.E., program since 1990. The program promotes the prevention of drug use and drug-related crimes to children, kindergarten through sixth grades. In 1996, the City of Moab adopted drug-free zones, with designation and enforcement in accordance with state statutes.

In addition to D.A.R.E., the officers began participation of a program sponsored by Subway called "Playin' It Safe" in August of 2013. The program rewards children for practicing safe habits, such as wearing safety equipment, or properly crossing the road.
