A Note From Your Sheriff


Welcome to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department website.   I am Sheriff Mark Napier and I am proud to offer you this window into our Department.  This provides you the opportunity to learn about our department and its programs, and have better access to us so that we may better serve you.

The Sheriff’s Department provides law enforcement services to approximately 330,000 residents in unincorporated Pima County and patrols an area covering 9,200 square miles with a total population of 1 million.  I am proud that the hardworking commissioned men and women of my Department provide an unparalleled level of service and answer calls that other agencies do not.  In addition, we run a full-scale correctional facility capable of housing up to 2,000 inmates—another huge responsibility that is met every day by my outstanding Corrections staff.

In my 28 years of law enforcement experience, there is nothing more challenging and rewarding than leading the Pima County Sheriff’s Department today.  As the 34th elected sheriff of Pima County, I am humbled by the awesome responsibility and the obligation I have to ensure your safety and enforcement needs are met.  We aim to bring you the highest level of cutting edge service--provided with care, compassion, and professionalism.

I welcome your input and encourage you to take advantage of the features of our website.  Your feedback is critically important in helping me understand where best to apply my resources to address crime problems and to improve safety in the communities where you live. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department has been protecting and serving the citizens of Pima County since 1865 and we look forward to many more.  Thank you for visiting us here and thank you for your support of our law enforcement efforts.
