Ladies and Gentlemen,
The ACA has wrapped up our training conference at the Tubac Golf, Resort and Spa, located in Tubac. I was pleased by the caliber of instructors and the range of topics we were able to bring to our members.
At the conference, during our ACA Business meeting, we elected our board members per the ACA Bylaws which state "All directors, except Past President, shall be elected for a term of two (2) years. Elections for directors, will be held every even numbered year at the first annual meeting of the association membership". Congratulations to the new board!
We have sent out firearm and use of force training questionnaires to those members whose counties participate in the Arizona Counties Insurance Pool. Please fill these out and return them as soon as possible. We will be scheduling training in the next few months.
Our next conference is scheduled for September 18th
in Flagstaff. We will be reminding you and making registration forms available later in the year.
Arizona Constables Association
CONSTABLE ENRIQUE GÁRFIAS
An excerpt from phoenix.gov:
Enrique “Henry” Gárfias was an early Phoenix community leader, and the first Hispanic to hold an elected office in the city. Gárfias was born in Mexico, and grew up in California. He came to Phoenix in 1874. Four years later he ran for town constable and won, defeating several Anglo candidates. His duties included serving legal notices and assisting in operations of the peace court. In 1881, Gárfias ran for the position of Phoenix’s first city marshal.
