It is important to remember that the Sheriff’s Office would not typically call and say you have a warrant or that you owe money. There are people out there going on our website to look for officer’s names and then calling citizens advising that they’re going to be arrested for one reason or another. There are even apps that disguise phone numbers so it appears that the phone number they are calling is ours.

If this happens to you, remember the name that was used and then call 928 669-6141 or 2281, and confirm the legitimacy of the call.

Please do not give personal information over the phone. Thanks.

Said who?

12.43 Daniel Cota and Roman Torres apply!!

This is an entry level position. The pay isn’t going to be extravagant. For me I see it as a foot in the door opportunity for those who want to be in law enforcement. It’s also a good workplace. If you don’t plan on applying I wouldn’t worry about the pay.

Please not the pay has been updated to $14.10 hourly Minimum wage

Insulting pay.

$12.43/hr lol Not even minimum wage in most states.

Couldn’t of said it any more clear than that Crystal Rae clark ! .......”If you don’t plan on applying don’t worry about the pay.” Also to those who don’t have a job and possibly have no luck like most others with any employment for whatever reason this pay is more than enough and if anything it’s better than nothing 💁🏻‍♀️ You gotta start somewhere.... Just saying ! 😊

On 01/09/21 at 11:30, emergency personnel within La Paz County were dispatched to the “Four Peaks” area off Plomosa Road, Bouse, for a subject that had fallen into a mine shaft. Upon arrival, the La Paz County Search and Rescue Sergeant learned that a male subject in his 70’s, had driven a “quad” up the hill and had accidentally driven into the mine shaft, falling approximately 25 feet down.

The La Paz County Sheriff’s Office had recently purchased an Arizona Vortex, which is pictured below. The Arizona Vortex allows rescuers to lower themselves down into confined spaces (typically mineshafts), to recover victims or objects.

Upon arriving on Scene, La Paz County Sergeant already had the Arizona Vortex in his vehicle and was able to work with the Buckskin Fire Department personnel to lower themselves and secure the victim. The victim, who was severely injured but responsive, was secured on a “Stokes litter” and extracted to the surface where medical personnel were standing by. He was eventually flown to a Phoenix area hospital by Careflight.

This type of rescue is very technical in nature and takes extensive training to perform. We would like to recognize the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue/deputies, Buckskin Fire Department, Bouse Fire Department, American Medical Response and Careflight for working together to ensure this successful rescue. We would also like to point out that had it not been for the partnership/training between the La Paz County Search and Rescue and the Buckskin Fire Department, this rescue may have taken several more hours, which the victim may not have had.
