PCSO Sgt. Pat Ramirez

By Mila Besich Lira

The Town of Superior is currently using a Sergeant from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office to provide coverage until town leadership decides on the future of Superior Police Department. Town leaders have been in talks with PCSO to dissolve SPD and accept contracted patrol from county deputies.

PCSO has assigned Sgt. Pat Ramirez to handle the duties of police chief. According to Superior Town Manager Kane Graves, the council is expected to approve Ramirez as an interim chief.

Over the month of May, the Superior Town Council held two public forums examining the pros and cons of SPD staying in tact or the Town contracting with PCSO. There have been no votes on the contract, but details are being negotiated between the parties.

Before the contract can be approved by the Town Council, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors will need to vote to approve entering the contract. The Board is expected to have a workshop concerning the contract on Wednesday, Jun. 12 at 9 a.m.

Residents who wish to share their concerns can contact members of the Board of Supervisors prior to the work session via email or telephone.
