Sheriff's Weekly Highlights July 1, 2016
Celebrating Professional Development and Detention Officer II Promotions

Congratulations to David Hallett, Eduardo Juarez, Oscar Ruiz, Aaron Tarter, Trevor Terpening, Kayla Williams on their recent promotions to the position of Detention Officer II.

Detention Officer II’s serve in many capacities in our Detention Facility. Many work in specialty assignments such as Court Office, Detention Services Officers, Inmate Relations Officers, Detention Liaison Officer, Classification Officer, and Work Crew Supervisor.  Others serve as lead staff on their shifts helping to develop and mentor Detention Support Services and Detention Officer I staff.  Often DO II’s become Field Training Officers and take an official role in the training of new employees.  Other assignments that a DO II may be responsible for include transporting inmates to the hospital, court, or to other agencies.  They regularly fill in as the shift supervisor if a Sergeant is on days off.   

In order to be considered for DOII, our officers are required to have at least 6 months of experience in a Detention Setting and have completed an academy of at least 240 hours.  Once they meet those qualifications, they are required to pass a written test, a writing assignment, and an oral board.  Once those steps are completed, they receive 40+ hours of firearms training.  Once they successfully pass the firearms portion, they are presented to Command Staff for promotion.

Congratulations to these employees in taking the next step in their professional growth and development and taking on new leadership roles in our agency.

Sheriff’s Office Hosts Northern Arizona PIO Meeting
Be Fire Wise

On June 20, the Sheriff’s Office hosted a reunion of the Northern Arizona PIO team.  Approximately 20 Public Information Officers from local, state, and federal agencies in the greater Flagstaff area met to discuss wildland fire prevention education and to provide updates on their agencies’ current projects.  This group historically has had a very strong interagency support network for public information, and it was great to get the group back together. 

PIO’s discussed current status of wildland fires; wildfire prevention campaigns in Northern Arizona as well as Phoenix; coordination of local, state, and federal wildfire prevention fire restrictions; brainstorming on messaging.  Because of the efforts of this group and within a few days, we were able to work with DPS and ADOT to broadcast “WILDFIRE / DANGER / BE FIRE WISE” on the interstate sign boards from Phoenix to Northern Arizona (special thanks to Bart Graves with DPS and Doug Pacey with ADOT).

Law Enforcement Torch Run Teams Raise over $6,000 Through Tip a Cop Events
CCSO Tip A Cop for Community Benefit

Thank you to all the community members who helped make our recent Tip a Cop events a huge success. In the past couple of weeks our staff partnered with Ja’di’T o’oh Restaurant at Antelope Point in Page (on June 17) and Taverna Greek Grill in Flagstaff (on June 21) to serve meals and raise money for Special Olympics in Northern Arizona. Together they raised over $6,000.

Tip a Cop is a fundraiser in which meals are served by staff from the Coconino County Sheriff's Office and the "tips" and a portion of the meal sales goes directly to support N AZ Special Olympians.

Special Olympics of AZ provides year-round sports training and competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities and cause-related disabilities giving them opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in sharing their skills, gifts and friendships. Special Olympics AZ serves more than 9,100 athletes.
