In The Spotlight

Surprise Police Chief Michael Frazier

For his leadership and commitment to drug and alcohol prevention, we are proud to recognize Surprise Police Chief Michael Frazier. Chief Frazier has served as president of the Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police for the past year and has brought statewide awareness to the importance and value of prevention.
