FLORENCE, Ariz. –  When Sylvia Shafer joined the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office as a patrol deputy in May of 1980, there were almost as many horses and cattle in Pinal County as there were people.

Sheriff Paul Babeu addressing the Pinal County Board of Supervisors

The Pinal County Board of Supervisor's meeting that took place yesterday, March 14th, was packed.  Many of those in attendance were waiting anxiously to hear from Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu regarding his budget.

In January 2012, it was brought to the County's attention, that if PCSO continued to spend as it had the previous 6 months, that PCSO would have exceeded its budget by $3.2 million dollars.  PCSO was asked to make changes and present a new budget in February.  At an unrelated press conference at the beginning of February, Sheriff Babeu stated that his budget was balanced.  During the Feb 22nd BOS meeting, Sheriff Paul Babeu was not present and his budget was not presented.  An extension was granted until the March 14th Board meeting.
