Sheriff Paul Babeu and the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department donated a generous $2,000 grant to MSM Community Schools. Larry Ramirez accepted the check from Sheriff Babeu with pleasure. “Money like this helps to keep registration costs down on MSM Community Schools sports like soccer, football, cheerleading, basketball, wrestling and swimming,” said Ramirez. “It also helps in the financial support of programs like free swim lessons, Trunk or Treat, Halloween Costume Parade, etc.”

Sheriff Babeu said he was thankful to Larry Ramirez and MSM Community Schools and all he does in the community and for the youth. Sheriff Babeu is aware of the dedication and acts of kindness that is put forth by many people in the small rural areas of Pinal County. When law enforcement has the opportunity to partner with good men and women, leaders, parents and the youth of our community they are happy to be a part of it. The sheriff’s department wants to show their support of the youth and the programs put forth by MSM Community Schools. By having activities like MSM Community Schools offers, it helps keep our youth active in positive ways in a safe environment.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Department has close to 700 full time people that work in our community. Sheriff Babeu said, “We want you to see us as caring members of our community, and partners with you, not just another person with a hand in law enforcement.”

Sheriff Babeu started his law enforcement career as a police officer for the City of Chandler, Ariz. He graduated from the Arizona Law Enforcement Academy as the number one overall police recruit and voted by his fellow officers as the class exemplary officer. Sheriff Babeu has been awarded two life saving medals in the performance of his duties as a patrolman. As president of the Arizona Sheriff’s Association, he currently serves on the NOVA Board and is active with numerous military, civic and community groups within Pinal County and across the state.

Larry Ramirez and MSM Community Schools are thrilled to have received the generous donation from Sheriff Babeu and the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office! Thank you!
