Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu Elected to Second Term as President of Arizona Sheriff's Association

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu has been elected to serve a second term as the president of the Arizona Sheriff's Association.

Babeu, an Iraq war veteran and former Chandler police officer, made a name for himself in recent years for his tough stance on immigration.

Babeu's reputation as the face of immigration reform was furthered when one of his deputies, Louie Puroll, claimed he was shot by drug smugglers in the Vekol Valley -- a remote section of Pinal County frequently used by cartels to move drugs and people into the country illegally.

Puroll's account was later questioned by New Times. He was then fired for lying after making comments -- including an apparent death threat Puroll claimed was made by a Mexican rancher -- to a New Times reporter in the aftermath of our story questioning his claims.

Babeu will lead the agency comprised of sheriffs from all of Arizona's 15 counties. The PCSO describes the ASA as a way for sheriff's from across the state "to coordinate a uniform agenda to improve public safety throughout Arizona."

"Our budgets have been reduced due to the slow economy, yet theft, burglary and domestic violence have increased in many parts of Arizona. Your elected Sheriff's are teaming up to better protect our families with fewer resources," Babeu says in a statement. "We have improved service by providing advanced training and modernizing our agencies with use of current technology."

Being elected president of the state's sheriffs association is on par with being elected president of the fourth grade class at Coolidge Elementary School.

I will award kudos to Sheriff Paul Babeu for his service in the military and in the Iraq War.

However, recent events surrounding Babeu and his agency (namely, Louie Puroll) taint his "reputation" as a face of immigration.

It seems to me that his "investigation" into Hendy, Fox and Black, the Puroll bullshit, and his recent blame game on Sheriff Clarence Dupnik of Pima County in the wake of the Tucson incident indicate a very insecure individual. I wonder if he learned that from his butt buddy, the Flaccid Fool of MCSO? I also wonder if he learned how to be a media hog from the Ancient One.

I, for one, am sick of seeing this fool's face and hearing his voice on my TV.

Yes Tommy, it's true that Babeu had 3 years of policing with Chandler.

Maybe Babeu could start by concentrating his efforts on getting the MCSO sheriff, one of fifteen in the state, to start doing his job in Maricopa County.

I wonder if it's true that Babeu had just three years of policing with Chandler before running for sheriff in Pinal County? If so, he has the equivalent of pretty much no experience in policing, which is why he was duped by Louie... and he's too stupid to admit it. But, he sure as hell talks the talk.

Yep, Coz. He's nothing more than Little Joe Paul.... the ugly younger twin sister to the Flaccid Fool of MCSO.

Where is it listed that these crimes (theft, burglary and domestic violence) have increased in many parts of Arizona. I thought I heard that overall all levels of crime have been reduced over the last 10 years.

What we need is for our sheriffs to do the job we hired them to do - serve warrants and take care of presumed innocent people in our jails. Not galavanting all over Central America planning their golden parachutes.
