Headed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is unique from other correctional facilities as it houses 2,000 convicts in tents. The 15 cents per meal per inmate program is unlike any other, as well as the chain gangs lead by Sheriff Arpaio‘s posse. There are eight county jails under the supervision of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, which include: 4th Ave, Durango, Estrella, First Ave, Lower Buckeye, Madison, Towers, and the controversial Tent City. With the Maricopa County inmate search program, an automated hotline provides an inmate's general information, victim notification and self-surrender information. The Maricopa County Jail and Sheriff’s Office prides itself for being the leader in establishing standards for professional law enforcement.
