🌟CONGRATULATIONS!🌟 Members of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department School Resource Unit traveled to Scottsdale, Arizona, this week to attend the 2018 School Safety Conference, hosted by the Arizona School Resource Officers Association (ASROA). While at the conference, our School Resource Officers were presented with a Unit Citation Award that was based on a nomination prepared by the Tanque Verde Unified School District’s administration. The nomination specified that the services provided by our School Resource Officers have been “invaluable” and that our deputies have earned the “…trust and respect of students and staff” by providing professional law enforcement services and support, assisting in resolving safety issues and in preparing emergency response plans and associated training sessions, delivering Drug Abuse Prevention Presentations, hosting Active Shooter Workshops, and supporting school district efforts towards FEMA training requirements for multi-hazard emergency response planning.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department proudly announces the department received accreditation from the National Institute for Jail Operations (NIJO) on June 7th at the Western Regional Conference. The Corrections Bureau completed a process of reviews and inspections related to operations and facilities led by the NIJO team. This successful process reflects our department’s commitment to leading edge strategies in all of our functions. Equally important is our dedication in providing the most professional, safe, and secure services for the community. This is accomplished when inmates are housed in humane conditions and when the highest standards are adhered to by the security features and staff training. The NIJO accreditation recognizes the department’s commitment and dedication to these standards.

The men and women of the Pima County Sheriff's Department extend our deepest condolences to the family, friends and coworkers of Officer Malcus Williams of the Ashland Police Department.

***Human Remains Located in the Desert*** On Thursday, June 7, 2018, at about 1:30 p.m., Pima County Search and Rescue and Patrol deputies responded to a report of human remains found in a remote desert location near Manville Road. Upon arrival, deputies were led to a human skull. Deputies collected the remains and conducted a thorough search of the area. No other human remains were discovered and the skull was transported to the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner – Forensic Science Center. The medical examiner was able to determine it was the skull of an adult. According to Humaneborders.info, at least 40 migrants’ remains have been collected in remote areas of Pima County, such as this one, since the beginning of the year. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department responds to and investigates all calls and would urge the public not to continue to call our department, or the 9-1-1 system, to report instances which have already been reported, as this can flood our reporting system and delay vital responses to emergency situations. Anyone with information about a crime in progress, or with an emergency, is urged to call 9-1-1.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department is proud to announce our partnership with the Southern Arizona Law Enforcement Foundation (SALEF). We look forward to the opportunity in participating with SALEF in community events and programs. #PCSDproud #SALEF
