Marana Police Department officers recently conducted two warrant sweeps searching for subjects who have active DUI and traffic warrants issued by the Marana Municipal Court. Currently, there are approximately 100 active DUI- related arrest warrants issued by the Marana Municipal Court. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of other active Marana Court warrants which are related to the general scope of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS). Officers arrested eighteen absconders for outstanding warrants. Six additional individuals voluntarily appeared in court to take care of their warrants after learning officers were attempting to locate them. Two additional individuals were already in custody at the Pima County Adult Detention Center when their warrants were served. Officers served twenty eight arrest warrants during this warrant sweep. A total of $25,479.00 in bonds was cleared, not including a no bond felony warrant. Instead of being booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center before seeing a judge, most absconders were taken directly to Marana Municipal Court to appear before the Town Magistrate. This exclusive procedure has proven to be very successful and cost effective. The funding for this warrant sweep comes from a grant awarded by the GOHS Oversight Council on Driving or Operating Under the Influence Abatement. The Marana Police Department was awarded $35,000 in overtime funds allocated for warrant sweeps targeting subjects who have active warrants for DUI and traffic related crimes. The Marana Police Department will be conducting additional warrant sweeps soon. Citizens are reminded they can resolve their warrants by appearing at Marana Municipal Court during regular business hours. This allows citizens with arrest warrants to avoid being arrested at their residence or place of employment and booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center by Marana PD officers.

Over the weekend the Marana Police Department and the Marana Police Volunteers hosted their first “Shop with a Volunteer/Shop with a Cop” event. On Saturday, February 25, thirty-five students from the Marana Unified School District went on a shopping spree at the Kohl’s in Marana. The students were chosen based on their need and represented all ages, from the youngest elementary school students to an emancipated high school senior. “These children and families are being selected by the school district as those who need a little help with some basic needs for the kids,” Marana Police Department Volunteer Thomas Cox. Funding for the shopping spree was raised a few months ago at the Pride for the Patch golf tournament for first responders, military, and military veterans. The event was hosted by Marana Police Volunteers with support from the Marana Police Department. “The plan with the proceeds from the event was to help our Marana community,” said Cox. In addition to the funds provided by the Marana Police Volunteers, Kohl’s provided Kohl’s cash, as well as 25 percent off everything in the store. “Kohl’s was fantastic,” said Marana Police Chief Terry Rozema. “They rolled out the red carpet.” The store not only provided the discounts and bonus funds, but also had plenty of employees on hand to assist with their shopping needs. Students were able to purchase new clothing and shoes as well as other necessities. This is the second donation from the golf tournament proceeds. The first occurred in December when the Marana Police Volunteers donated to Open Doors Community School. The school was selected due to its willingness to take in every student, including students who have struggled academically or with discipline issues at other schools. This was their second Pride for the Patch golf tournament. In 2016 the Marana Police Department Volunteer Foundation presented a check for $12,377.07 to the pediatric unit at Banner University Medical Center.

Hello Everyone, I just want to provide a friendly reminder of the Dispose-A-Med event that will be taking place Saturday, February 10, 2018 at the Target located at 3901 W. Ina road, from 10:00-12:00pm. The Marana Police Department, in partnership with the Marana-Foothills Optimist Club, Marana Prevention Alliance, Vistoso Funeral Home, and Pima County Wastewater, encourage citizens, businesses and schools to join us in sharing information about drug awareness and preventive measures. The Police Department provides this opportunity for the proper disposal of unused and/or expired prescription drugs. Prescription and over-the-counter tablets and capsules will be collected. For safety and confidentiality reasons, any items turned over for collection cannot be returned. We cannot accept drugs from commercial organizations. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. THE MARANA POLIC DEPARTMENT WOULD LIKE TO LET EVERYONE KNOW OF A CHANGE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS EVENT. SYRINGES, CREAMS OR LOTIONS WILL NO LONGER BE COLLECTED. SORRY FOR THE INCONVIENCE.

We often get messages from citizens expressing their gratitude for the service our officers provide! Check this note out! "I went to pick up my daughter from Coyote Trail today. While walking out, my daughter said, “look at the police officers”. I asked her if she wanted to talk to them. We walked up to them and they were so personable. They offered to show them their car and even turned on the flashing lights. I don’t know their names, but I appreciated them taking the time to talk to my girls! Thank you for keeping the community safe and thank you for your service! Oh and big sister Leila (in the cop car) has been wanting to be a police officer when she grows up (since she watched zootopia)" - Miriam Shout out to Ofc. Schmidt and Ofc. Samano for making these kiddos day! #MaranaPD

John Lutzel retired from the Marana PD volunteer program (VIPS) last week. He volunteered over 14 years of service, contributing in excess of 3000 hours. Thank you for your service John!

“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don’t have to know Einstein’s “Theory of Relativity” to serve. You don’t have to know the Second Theory of Thermal Dynamics in Physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.” - Martin Luther King Jr. #MLKDay #MaranaPD #UnparalleledService

The Marana Police Department believes they are the fittest public safety agency in Southern Arizona and are willing to prove it. Marana PD has issued an open challenge to see who can gain the most muscle, and lose the most body fat. Marana PD issued the Pride 4 the Patch “Fit 4 Duty, Fit 4 Life” Fitness Challenge on Facebook, and already a number of surrounding public safety agencies have accepted. The response has been so well received we are hoping to expand the challenge next year, possibly statewide based on the feedback from Marana PD Sgt. Scott: “We have had some agencies from the Phoenix area tell us they want in.” Next week, participants will have their body fat and muscle mass measured as a baseline via a Bod Pod examination. Three months later, participants will again be tested a final time and learn how much fat they have lost and how much muscle they have gained. “This is an excellent gauge of physical fitness,” Scott said. “It is more than just losing pounds; we are measuring actual fat lost and muscle gained.” We are encouraging first responders to maintain healthy levels of fitness. As a matter of historical fact, first responders are prone to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and myriad other health related problems. Providing them with the tools necessary to combat these issues will place them on the right track to enjoying long and healthy lives both during and after their career in public safety. Three sworn personnel from each agency with the highest percentage of change from their baseline measurements will be counted as ambassadors for their agencies towards the competition. The agency with the overall highest percentage of change is the winner, and will rightfully claim the “Championship Belt” for the year. The belt will be displayed at the winning agencies headquarters. As of today, personnel from Marana PD, Oro Valley PD, Tucson PD, Sahuarita PD, AZ DPS, Pima County Sheriff’s Department, Golder Ranch Fire District, Northwest Fire District, Pima Regional SWAT, Tucson FD, US Probation-Tucson Office, Pima County Sheriff’s Department-Corrections, University of Arizona PD, Pima Community College PD, and Pascua Yaqui PD have committed to this challenge. We anticipate over 150 personnel from the various agencies participating. #MaranaPD #PutDownTheDonut #LetsGetIt Oro Valley Police Department Tucson Police Department Sahuarita Police Department Arizona Department of Public Safety Pima County Sheriff's Department Golder Ranch Fire District Northwest Fire District Tucson Fire Department The University of Arizona Police Department Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona Pima Community College

Marana Police Department Officer Erin Ysaguirre was honored as one of four Unsung Heroes by the Southern Arizona Law Enforcement Foundation. The award is given for going above-and-beyond in their service to the community. Ysaguirre and the other officers selected for the award were picked because of their dedication to their jobs and for helping the community. The honorees were recognized Wednesday, January 10, at the University of Arizona’s Hall of Champions. Ysaguirre was recognized for her contributions to the community, both on and off duty. Her commitment to providing “unparalleled service” as a member of Marana PD, while also participating in events like Tip a Cop, the Law Enforcement Torch Run, and Special Olympics while off-duty were factors in earning the award. Ysaguirre volunteered as an instructor and represented Marana PD at Camp Fury. Camp Fury is a partnership between local public safety agencies and the Girl Scouts. The camp exposes teen girls to careers in public safety with hands on training. Ysaguirre is a regular instructor with Marana PD, Field Training Officer and mentor to newer officers. She volunteers at her daughter's school and regularly teaches at Marana PD's Citizen's Academy. The Southern Arizona Law Enforcement Foundation is a nonprofit foundation, which was previously known as the Tucson Police Foundation. The “Unsung Heroes” award was established in 2003 and only awarded Tucson police personnel, until this year, which is the first the award was open to other local agencies. Ysaguirre becomes the first Marana PD officer to win the award The mission of the Southern Arizona Law Enforcement Foundation is to raise funds to help purchase equipment, technology, and officer safety training for law-enforcement agencies. Ysaguirre has been with Marana PD since 2010. Before joining the Marana PD family, she was an officer with Flagstaff PD for three years. Southern Arizona Law Enforcement Foundation-SALEF
