Across Navajo County today, Sheriff’s Deputies participated in 9/11 Memorial events. The morning started out with deputies at the 9/11 Tower challenge, four stories, eighteen trips up and down at the police/fire training facility in Taylor. The day ended at the 9/11 Memorial Service in Winslow. We will never forget the selfless sacrifice 343 firemen and 60 police officers gave as they lost their lives responding to the attack. We will also never forget the over 3000 innocent Americans that were killed in the attack.

Navajo County Criminal Interdiction Unit seizes 67 pounds of high-grade marijuana

On September 3, 2020, a Navajo County Sheriff’s Deputy assigned to the Criminal Interdiction Unit stopped a passenger car on Interstate 40 milepost 284, west of Holbrook, for a traffic violation. A subsequent investigation and assistance from the Holbrook Police Department K9 revealed 67 pounds of high-grade marijuana. The suspect was arrested and booked into the Navajo County Jail for Possession of Marijuana and Transportation of Marijuana For Sale. The estimated street value is in excess of $115,000.00. The Navajo County Sheriff’s Office appreciates the assistance and partnership with the Holbrook Police Department.

Sheriff Clouse and everyone at the Navajo County Sheriff's Office sends their condolences to Commander Jody Makuch's family, friends, and brothers and sisters in blue. Rest in Peace Sir.

COMMANDER JODY MAKUCH WILL BE GREATLY MISSED

It is with great sadness the Cottonwood Police Department learned early yesterday afternoon that Commander Jody Makuch was involved in an off-duty fatal vehicle vs. motorcycle collision, which led to his death. The investigation is being handled by the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Commander Jody Makuch began his career in law enforcement in 1998 as a Police Officer with Elk City Police Department, Oklahoma. Jody moved to Arizona and has been with the Cottonwood Police Department since January 2000. He was promoted to Commander in November of 2009. Commander Makuch was assigned to the Support Services Division.

His area of responsibility included:

• Investigations
• Professional Standards
• Cottonwood Public Safety Communications Center
• Records
• Victim Assistance
• Citizen Police Academy
• COP Volunteers
• Mobile Command Unit

Commander Makuch is a graduate of the 245th session of the FBI National Academy. He has worked various duties to include Corrections, Patrol, Field Training Officer (FTO), SWAT and Field Training Supervisor. Commander Makuch served for seven and a half years in the United States Army prior to his law enforcement career. His various job specialties while serving in the Army included Artillery, Corrections and Military Police.

In addition to Jody’s dedication and commitment to the Cottonwood Police Department he was also a devout husband and father to his wife, Joanna, their two adult daughters; Ashleigh & Gabrielle; and two sons, Hudson (13) and Spencer (12). Jody spent all of his time with his family; who he loved greatly, and was an avid motorcycle and dirt bike enthusiast.

He will be deeply missed by the Cottonwood Police Department and the community he served.

Local law enforcement agencies and fire departments escorted Commander Makuch to the Yavapai Medical Examiner’s Office where members will remain with him until he is transferred to the funeral home. This is known as "Hero Watch".

“Jody Makuch represented the best in humanity. He was first and foremost a loving and dedicated husband and father. His family was everything to him. He was a veteran, selfless public servant, mentor, and friend. He will be greatly missed. We ask that the public keep his family in their thoughts and prayers during this tragic and difficult time and respect their privacy.” – Chief Steve Gesell, Cottonwood Police Department.

Many have reached out to us with the desire to donate to the Makuch family. You can do so through Law Enforcement Heroes at http://www.lawenforcementheroes.com/ . Or drop off a check or cash at the Cottonwood Police Department earmarked for the Makuch family. (###)

On this day in Holbrook History!
Famous Owens-Blevins Shootout

On September 4, 1887, Holbrook Sheriff, Commodore Perry Owens, went to the Blevins house to serve a warrant on Andy Blevins.

The family was in the midst of Sunday dinner and Andy refused to come out. Within moments, Andy’s half brother, John, opened the door and took a shot at the sheriff, who quickly drew his six-guns, sending bullets into both John and Andy.

A gunfight inevitably erupted and Sam Blevins, just 15 years old, ran out the door firing at Owen, who returned the shots. A friend of the Blevin family named Mose Roberts also fired upon the Sheriff. The melee, lasting less than a minute, left Andy and Sam Blevin, as well as Mose Roberts dead. John Blevins was wounded.

Governor Doug Ducey

The Executive Order that Governor Ducey issued today, deferring requirements to renew standard driver licenses that have an expiration date between March 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020, by one year from their original expiration date.
Governor Ducey in March issued an Executive Order delaying expiration dates on Arizona driver licenses for six months, ensuring residents over the age of 65 do not need to visit MVD offices to renew their driver licenses during the public health emergency.

Starting Wednesday, September 2nd, any driver may see their updated driver license expiration date at AZMVDNow.gov. Drivers have the option to order a duplicate license with the updated expiration date.

View today’s Executive Order: https://azgovernor.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=92fdf4d2c03bdcc82721f4a7b&id=b93b2a043a&e=c2f85ebd39.

Arizona continues to focus on taking smart, proactive steps to reduce #COVID19 transmission. Extending the expiration date on Arizona driver licenses is a commonsense measure that will reduce the number of in-person MVD visits during the upcoming months and protect our most vulnerable.
