If you are requesting a weapon to be released to you, the Sheriff’s Office will look at your criminal history and run a warrants check on you to ensure you are not a prohibited possessor prior to the release.
The Sheriff’s Office will tow and store only vehicles seized as evidence, forfeiture, and/or do not meet state semi-laws. If your vehicle was towed because you were in violation of Arizona Revised Statutes 28-3511 (30-day hold), your vehicle is located at a local tow company. You need to contact the officer who impounded your vehicle and request a hearing within 10 days of the impound date, and the deputy should be able to advise you of where your vehicle is located.
Arizona Revised Statute 28-3511 is as follows:
Removal and immobilization or impoundment of vehicles due to suspended or revoked driving privileges, no valid driver’s license, no functioning certified ignition interlock device, or no insurance.

Any type of criminal or suspicious activity should be reported. You can contact the Sheriff's Office's Non-Emergency Dispatch line at 520-866-5111. For emergencies, call 911.
When calling, please be specific. We need to know what activity you have observed and what causes you to believe the situation is criminal or suspicious. Please try to provide as much information as possible, such as vehicle descriptions, clothing and physical descriptions of suspicious persons, and good location information where the activity is occurring.
Examples of suspicious activity can include, but are not limited to:
If you are in doubt, call.
As the reporting party, you are the first and only source of information until a police officer arrives on the scene. Dispatchers are trained to ask specific questions relevant to the deputies’ responses. In the few minutes that it takes for the officer to drive to a location, particularly one that is volatile, many things can change. A suspect may leave, a shot can be fired, a burglar can gain entry, or more people can arrive at a fight with weapons. The more information you can provide, the better chance deputies have of apprehending a suspect, bringing a fight under control, or preventing injuries.
There are several types of reports that the police respond to that will not be canceled by telephone:
These calls are rarely canceled even if you call back to tell us everything is fine. The reason is a victim can be easily coerced into sounding convincing while telling the dispatcher that everything is okay. Some situations require the physical presence of the police to verify that everyone is safe and that peace has been restored.
The Communications Department is staffed with anywhere from 3 to 6 dispatchers at a time. The phone system is designed so that each call is answered by the available dispatcher. Therefore, when you call several times in a day, it is possible you will get a different dispatcher each time you call because the original dispatcher may be busy with other calls.
The Communications Division is staffed with highly-trained professionals whose responsibility is to provide community service, interview callers, and relay information to deputies. All positions are staffed by non-sworn employees. Deputies do not staff any positions in the Division.
Simply, deputies are not in the same room with the dispatchers, and are out in the field and not near a phone.
