He will assume that office for a two-year term starting Jan. 1, 2019.  According to PCSD, this is an especially high honor for Sheriff Napier, as he was nominated and unanimously elected by his peer sheriffs in the State.

This is the first time that a Pima County Sheriff has been elected to serve as an officer of the association. Sheriff Napier is proud to be increasing the recognition of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department and extending his leadership to a statewide level.
