Animal Control
The St. Johns Police Department employs one Animal Control Officer who is responsible for all animal-related complaints and issues. The City requires tags and vaccination records for all dogs.

Housewatch Program

The Police Department honors requests from citizens to conduct security checks of their homes when they are on vacation. While occasional security checks cannot guarantee that the property will be safe from all vandalism or burglary, participation in this program can serve as a deterrent to criminal activity.

the Police Department, 1190 West Cleveland or fax it to (928) 337-3152.
