New sheriff says election safety, security remain focal point in 2024

Maricopa County's new sheriff said Tuesday that election safety and security will continue to be a focus of his office heading into 2024.

Sheriff Russ Skinner said he intends to aggressively investigate threats against county election officials to ensure voting is conducted safely, and that his deputies are spread out throughout the Valley and ready to take action if necessary. He said it was done.

“We will continue our forward security operations and make sure we are visible,” he said.

His comments came at his first press conference since he was appointed chief of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office by county supervisors and as voting begins for the presidential race, the first major election of the year.
