Our collective hearts are heavy with sympathy for our former Sergeant Jose Francisco Sepulveda, who served with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office from September 16th, 1971 – September 29th, 2006. Our most heartfelt condolences are with the Sepulveda family. 


SCC Sheriff's Office Shoe Drive 2018

The SCC Sheriff's Office in conjunction with the Arizona Sheriff's Association (ASA) is participating in a shoe drive in which gently worn, used or new shoes will be collected as a fundraiser to enhance training opportunities for deputies and detention officers.

ASA will earn funds based on the total weight of pairs of donated shoes that are collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for collected shoes.
