What does it mean to Maricopa County?

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is monitoring intelligence referencing homeland security and will continue to update you when necessary.

There are professional law enforcement officials, public health professionals and emergency management personnel constantly reviewing material and information from a large variety of sources to ensure your safety.

Maricopa County has an excellent emergency plan and one of the best response capabilities for the residents near Palo Verde in the nation. The responders and emergency managers are very well schooled in handling emergencies that may occur at the plant, up to and including any potential terrorist act.

Although the National Security Threat Level is now reduced, we should take this opportunity to prepare ourselves as we would for any emergency such as a fire, flood or natural disaster. This site is intended to be a resource for employees of Maricopa County to find up-to-date information and links to national resources on terrorism and preparedness.
