Episode #215 with Sheriff Mark Lamb.
A few weeks ago we had Deputy Sheriff Matt Thomas, and tonight we will have his boss, Sheriff Mark Lamb from Pinal County Arizona. Sheriff Lamb worked for the police department of the Salt River Pima–Maricopa Indian Community for 6 years. In 2012, he joined the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Mark Lamb was elected in 2016 as Pinal County’s 24th Sheriff to lead Pinal County’s finest with a vision to better the status of Law Enforcement in Pinal County, and ultimately be an example for other agencies in Arizona and the United States of America.
You might recognize him from his visits to the White House or more frequently as a frequent guest on the now-cancelled #1 hit show on A&E, Live PD. If you have seen him on there, you know where he stands, and if you don’t well he says it pretty clear himself.
“The safety of the people who live and do business in Pinal County is my highest priority. We are one of the fastest growing regions in the United States of America with approximately 450,000 residents in an area approximately the size of the State of Connecticut. While the county is not on the U.S. Mexico border, it is a pass-thru county and vulnerable to smuggling and trafficking activities that come from reservation territory that reaches from Mexico into Pinal County.”
Sheriff Lamb has proven his ability to work with local, State and Federal agencies to coordinate the necessary resources to fight these illegal activities that would harm our county and our communities.
In October 2019, Lamb was featured on the TV series Live PD.
In November 2019, Lamb called for increased security along the Mexico–United States border to combat drug cartels from harming U.S. National Parks.
In May 2020, Lamb stated he would not enforce a stay-at-home order during the COVID-19 pandemic in Arizona on the basis that he believed it was unconstitutional. In June 2020, he tested positive for COVID-19 a week before his scheduled appearance at the White House for Donald Trump’s signing of executive order 139256.
In July 2020, Sheriff Lamb announced his intention to form a civilian posse of non-felon volunteers with four hours of training in legal guidelines and basic police tactics.
