2018 was another remarkable year for DPS. Read about the many activities of our 11 divisions in our annual report.

Below is the message from Commissioner Anderson that appears at the beginning of the report.

The Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) is woven into the very fabric of Utah, whether we are patrolling our highways and answering calls for service; responding to natural disasters; investigating drug trafficking; getting to know local community members; rendering aid to injured people; keeping our highways safe; analyzing shell casings in our crime lab; or employing compassion when investigating a tragic house fire. We care deeply about the place we call home and its people, and we strive every day to keep them safe. It’s what we love to do, and we do it better than any other public safety agency, anywhere. Compassionate policing and safe guarding all elements of public safety in our state are the anchor of what our employees do each and every day. As we continue to work to maintain the safe nature that is Utah, we aim to bring all our divisions and bureaus together as one to better serve the state. What our more than 1,500 employees do each day has an impact on the significant issues affecting our communities. At DPS, we view public safety as a shared responsibility between public servants, sworn and civilian, and those who live and work in the communities we serve. We will continue to work together to Keeping Utah Safe and an even more enjoyable place for everyone.
