Pinal County Justice Foundation is Seeking Public Help to Purchase Rifles for Deputies

The Pinal County Justice Foundation is seeking public assistance to assist our Sheriff’s Deputies with the war against the Mexican Drug Cartel members and their affiliates.  The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office is in need of funding to purchase rifles to arm our first responders who are charged with protecting our citizens. Dangerous incidents have increased through the past few years and are now escalating to a point where Deputies are involved in high speed vehicle pursuits, shoot outs between deputies and smugglers, incidents of ambush, as well as the deputy who was injured in a shooting.

These incidents show compelling evidence that Pinal County Deputies need automatic rifles to NOT be out-gunned by Drug and Human Smugglers.

Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, “My deputies are outgunned and we are outmanned.  We need help to raise money to buy Arizona made semi-automatic rifles to fight this threat against our citizens.”

Please donate what you can to help protect our deputies, our families, and our communities, while Arizona works toward securing our border and the smuggling corridors from dangerous criminals.

Your donation is a tax deductible contribution.

The Pinal County Justice Foundation website is:  www.pinalcountyjusticefoundation.org

Checks or money orders can also be sent to:  Pinal County Justice Foundation Inc., Attn:  Rifles for Deputies, 6832 South Kings Ranch Road # 2-16, Gold Canyon, Arizona 85118.  If you have any further questions please call 520-866-5133.

  1. Why not just use the ones confiscated from all the drug dealers and cartel? Aren’t they equiped with better weapons than Pinal County could afford anyway?

  2. Agreed. I don’t see how its my responsibility to arm the police. Sorry but I barly make enough to scrape by.
