Newly elected Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone visited Camelback High School along with Superintendent Dr. Chad Gestson, April 17, to talk to a small group of students about making good decisions in their life and treating everyone with respect. Students asked questions such as why he wanted to be the sheriff and what a sheriff’s typical day looks like, and then took photos with him. Sheriff Penzone also spoke with some staff members during their lunch hour to share his vision for the Sheriff’s office, including changes that he has already made or plans to make. The staff asked more challenging questions about how the department works with various cultural groups, treatment of inmates and the procedures they have for working with different law enforcement agencies.
