400 Detention Officers needed in Maricopa County AZ
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 08:46 AM by KayLaw
I live in Florida and saw this ad in the Help Wanted section of our little freebie paper. Doesn't that seem like a large number of new hires for some county in Arizona? Who are all these detainees they have or plan to receive, I wonder? This link was included in the ad: www.mcso.org

$14.99/hour, no experience needed, excellent benefits.

2. The way that sherriff in Maricopa treats inmates
He probably has a lot of VERY pissed off prisoners and a high turnover rate.

3. Bingo
Arpaio is a nazi, and no-one with any humanity wants to work for him. Half of the complaints come from inmates, the other half from staff (or ex-staff, usually).

6. That was my first thought
When I went to that site though, I was struck by the touchy-feely "caring" language and was extra baffled. I saw the ad yesterday and woke up thinking about it. . .Oh, well. :shrug:

8. This is probably in response to his border round ups of
undocumented Mexicans. He and his men have been driving around sweeping them up in vans. He doesn't, however, bother to arrest the owners of many businesses who use these same people as cheap labor.

Maricopa County is quite large, geographically speaking, and the population is growing.

400 is probably overkill (pun intended) but ol' Sheriff Joe is known for overkill.
