School Resource Officers (SRO's) are assigned to each of the schools in Logan City.  Their primary goal is to provide a safe and secure learning environment for every student.  These officers create and deliver educational presentations to the students geared toward the development of positive life skills as well as respect for our local and state laws.

N.O.V.A. is a 13-week program taught at the fifth-grade level by the Logan City Police.  A  4-week N.O.V.A. program is taught at Mount Logan Middle School for the 7th and 8th-grade students.  The N.O.V.A mission is “nurturing youth to seek out positive opportunities, internalize good values, and accept accountability.” 

During the N.O.V.A program, students learn five core principles that will help them be successful and positive leaders in their communities.  These five core principles are Accountability, Positivity, Knowledge, Work, and Respect.  Students also learn to avoid harmful substances and to make good choices that will increase their opportunities as they grow and go through life.

School Resource Officers spend additional time with the students in the classroom, the lunchroom, the hallways, and out on the playground.  These interactions build a relationship between the officers and the students that far outlast the time students spend in the program.

Cache Valley is growing quickly! With that growth, we recognize that gang-related problems have become more frequent. Our department-wide philosophy in relation to all crime is a "zero tolerance" approach. With that in mind, a gang unit was formed which includes all of the SROs. This enhances the opportunity for officers to work together in the sharing of information, and to speedily identify and solve gang-related trends and/or problems.  We believe that establishing a focus on prevention and education will be the key to successfully prohibiting gangs from taking a stronghold in our community. In support of this philosophy, classes on gang-related problems are available to any interested group.  We solicit each and every citizen to acquire knowledge and become active participants in the improvement of the community. Through these combined efforts, each citizen can be a beneficiary of the positive changes that will ensure that Logan City and Cache Valley remain safe and secure.

Letter to Parents on the Dangers of Technology (Cell phones, Internet, etc.)
The Logan City Police Department, Logan City School District, and the Cache County Attorney's Office continue to see an increasing number of incidents where children and teenagers become victims/offenders of various crimes that involve modern technology, communication, and media.


The Logan Gang Unit was created in 1995 and has remained a part of the department’s operations since that time. Unit members consist of the Special Operations Division Detectives and Patrol Division Officers. The unit has many duties within the department with gang suppression being a priority.

To prevent gangs from establishing themselves in Logan, we have the resources of the department to combat the problem with a detective assigned as the primary investigator of gang-related crimes and intelligence gathering. Even with our zero-tolerance attitude toward criminal behavior, we still partner with numerous other agencies to ensure our youth receive opportunities to become positive, contributing citizens.  The Cache County Sheriff's Office, First District Juvenile Court, Youth Corrections, Cache County Attorney's Office, and Division of Family Services are just some of our partners.

We ask for support from the community to take the appropriate action in parenting, reporting crime, supporting positive community events/activities, and mentoring the young people into a more positive future. Gang awareness presentations are available to the public, religious organizations, schools, and other groups.  To request a presentation, or if you have any information concerning gang-related behavior or crime, please contact (435) 753-7555.

If a crime is in progress, please call 911 to report it.

The Logan Gang Unit works to minimize gang-related crimes in the city by utilizing the following methods:

Community education and awareness presentations are integral to the success of the Gang Unit. Gang Unit officers are active in providing these to many different groups in the area. Presentations are tailored to fit adult groups and youth groups in order to most effectively prevent the growth of gangs. The Gang Unit actively seeks involvement with agencies that assist with prevention in order to promote a community-based solution.

Gang Unit personnel seek to assist gang-involved members and their families when possible. Gang members can be assisted with tattoo removal and with help in joining positive programs upon showing a commitment to remove themselves from gang affiliation.

Intelligence Gathering
The identification of street gangs and members is important in order to combat gang activities. Information related to gangs is shared between local and statewide law enforcement agencies and other government agencies which deal with gang members.

Gang Unit Personnel are active in sending a message of zero tolerance to gangs. Officers will work to prevent gang problems in identified areas or at community events in which gang-related activity is reasonably expected to occur.
