Sheriff suspends peace officer training for rest of year

Law and Order Report



The Pima County Sheriff’s Department is suspending peace officer training at its academy after the current class of officers graduates Friday.

Classes are expected to resume in 2010, said Deputy Dawn Barkman, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department.

Barkman said training for peace officers will be suspended temporarily to follow the wishes of the Pima County Board of Supervisors, who called on county agencies to cut back on spending during the economic downturn.

Training at the facility, located near the county jail, for jail corrections officers will continue.

The county’s fiscal year begins July 1.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
