Sheriff Joe Arpaio Protects Schools w/ Deputies

The Arizona Sheriff, known for his common sense approach to enforcement and delivery of his service to Maricopa County, Arizona, has ordered armed volunteers into a posse which will be regulated to protect and monitor the schools in the county.

“Everybody else is talking about what their ideas are. They want new laws. This is immediate. I don’t need a new law to send out my posse,” he told NBC affiliate, KPNX, on Thursday. “I feel like we should do whatever we can outside of the schools.”

Arpaio’s volunteers number about 3,000, with 300 to 400 carrying weapons. They log about 100 hours of training and undergo background checks, just like deputies, according to KPNX.

Sheriff with a cause….common sense / no frills

He first sent out his posse in 1993 to guard malls over the holiday season because of violence at those venues in the past. He believed that program worked, saying there have been zero violent re-occurrences, reported.

Arpaio’s plan follows similar ones released earlier this week: Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu has proposed arming willing principals, according to, while Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne said he wanted to arm a designated employee in every school, KPNX reported.
