Green Valley News: MPD helps shorthanded Sahuarita


The Green Valley News wrote a story about the Marana Police Department lending a hand to the Sahuarita Police Department as they go through some job turnover. 

The recent departure of two of the Sahuarita Police Department’s three records clerks has prompted Chief John Noland to reach out to the Marana Police Department for assistance. Seven police officers have also left the department this year; the department has 46 sworn positions.

Starting this weekend, four Marana records clerks will work remotely to help the police department process reports, traffic citations and warnings, Noland said. The departments use the same records management system.

One records clerk resigned and another retired at the end of September. Since then, Noland said he has promoted a third clerk to a supervisory position within the records department and received permission to add a position.

The Marana clerks and an administrative service officer will continue to help out until the open positions are filled, Noland said. Background checks are underway for three potential hires.
