During this pandemic, let us not forget our first line of defense. We pray everyone stays safe and healthy.

Every April, America recognizes the importance of 9-1-1 by designating it as National 9-1-1 Education Month. In communities nationwide, public-safety educators promote vital messages about how, when, and why to call 9-1-1. This year, because of the COVID-19 crisis, NENA encourages the promotion of our social-share graphic - available at nena.org/covid19 - detailing when people should call 9-1-1 about coronavirus.

Additionally, while hundreds of millions of Americans are sheltering in place in response to the pandemic crisis, 9-1-1 professionals are still serving on the front lines of emergency response every day. NENA thanks every 9-1-1 professional for their dedication, selflessness, and courage during these uncertain times. #ThankYou911

THE ARIZONA SHERIFF’S ASSOCIATION WARNS CITIZENS ON THE LATEST SCAMS CONNECTED TO COVID-19

Phoenix, AZ - The Arizona Sheriffs’ Association, in partnership with the National Sheriff’s Association, is warning residents of scammers who are taking advantage of the fears surrounding the Coronavirus.

Currently, there are multiple scams circulating throughout Arizona and the nation. Residents should not let anyone into their home claiming to be offering COVID-19 related cleaning services. These individuals are often using this offer as a way to enter into victim’s homes to burglarize them.

The FDA released a warning about anyone claiming to be selling at-home test kits. Ignore online offers for vaccinations and home test kits. Scammers are trying to get you to buy products that aren’t proven to treat or prevent the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) — online or in stores. There are no approved Covid-19 home testing kits available, so if you one of these alleged Covid-19 test kits, contact your local law enforcement agency. You can also report it to [email protected]. For more information visit, FDA.gov.

There has also been an increase in phishing emails asking people for donations or to verify personal information. Do not click on links or open attachments from unrecognized senders. The government WILL NOT ask for your personal information via email. In addition, don’t respond to any emails or text messages concerning government checks. The government will not ask you to pay anything upfront to get this money. No fees. No charges. No nothing. The government will also not call to ask for your Social Security number, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer.

In addition, do not click on links that appear to be coming from the CDC. Those links may contain malware or ransomware that will infect your computer.

Please reach out to your local law enforcement agency if you believe you are a victim of any scam.

03/31/2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the retirement of Deputy Chief Don Griffiths from the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Chief Griffiths started his Law Enforcement career as a Deputy in Maricopa County over 35 years ago. He went from Deputy to Sergeant for MCSO. DC Griffiths served in the Homicide Unit for 20 years, the last 10 as a Sergeant. He traveled the entire United States catching homicide suspects. When Don decided to hang the cuffs up in Maricopa, he moved to Navajo County. Once he was here, he wanted to help the community he resided in and do his very best to make this community a better place. That is exactly what he did. Over ten years ago, Deputy Chief Griffiths decided to become a volunteer deputy with Navajo County Sheriff's Office, about 6 months in, NCSO offered him a position to join the team. Deputy Chief Griffiths went from being a patrol deputy to civil deputy and then became a Lieutenant of the Civil Division, Criminal Investigations Unit and District 1. His last promotion was to the patrol Deputy Chief in 2019
Deputy Chief Griffiths has brought various amounts of knowledge with him. He has changed, for the better, the way an investigation is handled and performed. He has improved efficiency within our investigations at the Sheriff’s Office and we are forever grateful.
Congratulations Don on your retirement. We will miss you, but wish you the best.
Sheriff Clouse stated: “Deputy Chief Griffiths will be greatly missed at the Sheriff’s Office. He was a great mentor to me in working high profile investigations. Don has served the citizens of Navajo County for over 10 years and has made great improvements to how we investigate crimes here at NCSO and for that, I will be forever grateful for his service to NCSO.”

Reminder! Due to the amount of moisture Navajo County has received, all unmaintained roads are hazardous and are not in a condition to be traveled without taking the precautions for the unlikely event you become stuck. The Sheriff’s Office has received a lot of stranded motorist calls recently. Remember, the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office has limited resources, if you get stuck in the mud, a local tow company would be the best option to call. Please be safe and stay healthy.
