Brewer appoints Yavapai County Sheriff Mascher to Peace Officer Standards and Training board
Special to the Courier

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer appointed Yavapai County Sheriff Scott Mascher to the Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training board. His term began Wednesday.

The board's mission is to foster public trust and confidence by establishing and maintaining standards of integrity, competence and professionalism for peace and correctional officers, according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office.

Mascher is replacing Mohave County Sheriff Tom Sheahan and fulfilling a membership position representing a county with more than 200,000 residents.

Mascher came out of retirement from a 25-year career with the Sheriff's Office after Sheriff Steve Waugh stepped down this past June.

Lyle Mann, POST's executive director, commented, "I am looking forward to working with Sheriff Mascher as the board takes on its many statutory responsibilities."

The duties include the review of cases involving certified officers facing potential discipline for violation of POST rules. POST announces the results of case decisions in "integrity bulletins" and posts them on the board's website.

"Peace officers"? Is that why you squander other people's money purchasing surplus weapons of war from the military? So you can wage peace? Oh, here comes the spy drone, dropping rainbows and lollipops in my backyard. Peace officers. Give me a ... break.

An unelected sheriff garners yet another appointment. He seems to be really plugged in.
