In October 1987, the Pima County Jail Corrections Officers found the necessity to establish an organization to specifically address the needs and employment protections of county corrections professionals.
In 1988, the PCA was recognized by the county as an established employee organization. We began to make a difference fighting for the professionalism of corrections. Now we are known as a force to be reckoned with. We have access to county business through the Consult and Confer Committee as well as meetings with the Board of Supervisors and Sheriff. Anything that could affect us as professionals, we have a voice in. We have and will continue to fight for: improved retirement plans, parity pay, better benefits, better working conditions, and officer safety, in our own county and statewide
Our mailing address is Pima Corrections Association, P.O. Box 7250, Tucson, AZ 85725. The phone number is (520) 237-1549. Services provided include life insurance, grievance committee, attorney service, organized social/family events, community programs, and we continue to expand. If you have suggestions that you wish to be considered by the PCA, they should be voiced to any Board Member. The PCA exists for the benefit of all Corrections Professionals.
