Before the Badge: Officer Rob Sandoval, Rower 12:00:00 AM the Badge: Officer Rob Sandoval, Rower<div class="ExternalClassE832BE8C3D1141D0830A4B6A2C1B1DA5"><html> <p> <em>​Phoenix Police officers come from many different backgrounds, including different careers. The department's video series, ‘</em><a href="" target="_blank" data-saferedirecturl=""><em>Before the Badge</em></a><em>,’ is profiling some of those careers, and the diversity they bring to the department today. </em><br></p> <p>Any team sport that is going to be successful requires teamwork from each and every member. Community Action Officer Rob Sandoval will tell you that is certainly true in the sport of rowing. He knows firsthand from his years on the University of Notre Dame men's rowing team. <br></p> <p>"If someone lifts their oar a little bit high on one side, it changes the set of the boat and it doesn't go as fast," Officer Sandoval explained of rowing. "If we're not hitting in the water and driving through at the same time, the boat won't go as fast. So, in order to be as fast as you can as a team, everyone has to do their job."​<br></p> <p>While on the Notre Dame team, Sandoval sat eight seat in the boat. That is the seat closest to the coxswain, also known as the stroke. He rowed while working toward two degrees  —  one in government and international studies, and one in economics. <br></p> <p>"I was looking at originally going into maybe politics or wall street — some kind of business," Officer Sandoval explained. "And I decided I didn't want to do either of those. I kind of wanted to do something that I felt like was making more of a difference in people's day-to-day lives."<br></p> <p>Shortly after his graduation, news that his mom had cancer brought him back to Phoenix. He hopped around a few opportunities in the following several years, before applying to the Phoenix Police Department. He began the academy in 2005. <br></p> <p>"So my first four-and-a-half years were in the Maryvale Precinct," Officer Sandoval said. "I was on just one of the regular patrol squads for a little bit. Then I went to be a field training officer where we helped train the new officers straight out of the academy."<br></p> <p>He has also worked as a detective in family investigations and domestic violence, and now is a community action officer. From the boat to the badge, he says there is a similarity through it all. <br></p> <p>"Not everyone always has the same job," Officer Sandoval explained. "But you all have to work together as one unit in order to be the best that you can to achieve whatever goal you're going after at that time, whether it was making a boat go fast or it's keeping citizens safe."<br></p> <p>Officer Sandoval has kept up with rowing, starting a team at Phoenix Police — a club sport that competes against other police and fire departments, encouraging regular exercise for strength building and mental health, and fostering that team mentality.​<br></p> </html></div>
Critical Incident Briefing: Officer-involved Shooting near 75th Avenue & Indian School Road 5:24:00 PM Incident Briefing: Officer-involved Shooting near 75th Avenue & Indian School Road<div class="ExternalClass0A456888F2C7432C93F55E03BE66B254"><html> <p>​WARNING: The attached video may contain strong language as well as graphic images which may be disturbing to some people. Viewer discretion is advised.<br></p>The Phoenix Police Department released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on April 3, 2021 in the area of 75th Avenue and Indian School Road.       <br><br>This incident started around 8:00pm, when an adult male suspect, later identified as 26-year-old Jose Arenas, threatened multiple people with a handgun and attempted to rob them.<br><br>Patrol officers from the Maryvale Precinct and a police helicopter were nearby when 9-1-1 began receiving calls about Arenas pointing a handgun at multiple people. When officers arrived, they searched the area and located Arenas outside a nearby restaurant, where he was pointing a gun at a family in a car, and at the police helicopter.  <br><br>Officers told Arenas to drop the gun, but he refused. He fled into the restaurant which was occupied by multiple people. Once inside he pointed the gun and assaulted two customers. An officer followed Arenas into the restaurant and gave another command to drop the gun, which Arenas ignored.  He pointed the handgun at the officer, and the officer fired at Arenas, striking him.  <br><br>After checking the back area of the restaurant, Officers provided medical aid to Arenas until Phoenix Fire Personnel arrived and transported him to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. There were no injuries to any of the victims or the officers.<br><br>The handgun used by Arenas was recovered on scene.<br><br>The officer involved in this shooting is assigned to the Maryvale Precinct, Patrol Division, and has been with the department for 2 years.<br> <br>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.<br> <br>Public records law required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly.

These companies and business leaders were recognized by Mayor Kate Gallego for efforts promoting global trade for the Phoenix economy. Phoenix Sister Cities Commissioner Sonya Pastor LaSota presented this year’s sixth annual awards on April 15 at the virtual Mayor’s Export Awards Luncheon. The awards recognize contributions made in advancing the Phoenix export economy and draw attention to those who have demonstrated export excellence. <br></p> <p>Phoenix is resilient. COVID-19 impacted us all differently last year, but businesses and community leaders around the Valley continued to contribute to the Phoenix export economy. From further building Phoenix’s relationship with Taiwan, to maintaining its competitiveness through global trade, Phoenix continues  to be one of the five fastest-growing economies in the United States .</p> <p>“Exports are critical to economic growth in Phoenix,” Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said. “We encourage companies to enter the export market and to increase exports in order to create better jobs in Phoenix. We can grow together by working closely with our sister cities Hermosillo, Mexico; Calgary, Canada; and others.”</p> <p>The Export Champion of the Year is Sharon Harper with Plaza Companies.

As a member of the McCain Institute for International Leadership, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank, Harper works to advance security, economic opportunity, freedom and human dignity in the United States and around the World.</p> <p>Harper’s efforts to move the National Defense Authorization Act forward has propelled Arizona to be an international competitor on the manufacturing front, most notably on semiconductor manufacturing. Most recently,Harper has been intimately involved with the City of Phoenix in bringing global companies to this market, facilitating the supply chain that will join semiconductor giant, TSMC, here in Phoenix. Her tireless efforts to ensure Phoenix is a globally recognized competitor are apparent each day in her work to support local businesses on the international stage.</p> <p>The Exporter of the Year is Jane Spicer, CEO of Daphne’s Headcovers. Daphne’s Headcovers was founded by Spicer when she was 16 years old. Four decades later, the company is still providing jobs in Phoenix. Named for Spicer’s mother and mentor, the company established the novelty headcover niche with local roots in the Arizona Biltmore golf shop. Daphne’s Headcovers’ strong culture and core values have allowed it grow in good times and bad. It is now the oldest privately-held golf accessory company in the United States. Daphne’s Headcovers are carried by more than 200 professional golfers, including Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Nelly Korda, Lydia Ko, Greg Norman and many more. Now a multi-million-dollar company that exports to more than 75 countries, Daphne’s Headcovers core value is: “We must do good while we are doing well.” Spicer puts her money where her mouth is, supporting Golf Fore  Africa, The First Tee, Veterans Golf Association, Gabriel’s Angels, and Girls Golf of Phoenix.</p> <p>The Export Service Provider of the Year is Honeywell Aerospace.

Honeywell Aerospace is helping to keep Phoenix on the leading edge of technology.</p> <p>The Trilateral Trade Champion is Carol Colombo, CEO of AlertGPS, a workforce safety solutions company.

She has advised many past administrations in Arizona regarding international trade and economic development. Colombo has lobbied and helped obtain state and federal funding for trade, transportation and economic development initiatives that have been implemented throughout North America. She is a past-president of the Arizona Mexico Commission and past Co-Chair of the Governor’s CANAMEX Task Force. As a member of the Trade and Transportation Corridor Alliance, she developed Arizona’s statewide foreign direct investment framework. Colombo has passionately and effectively advocated for the ratification of the USMCA. Her advice, guidance, and involvement ensured that Arizona’s USMCA voice was not just heard, but significantly amplified.<br></p> </html></div>
