Maricopa County #1; Greater Phoenix #2: Fastest U.S. Metro Growth in 2020https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/ced/1887Community and Economic Development5/10/2021 10:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1887/NEWSROOM_CED_210016.jpgMaricopa County #1; Greater Phoenix #2: Fastest U.S. Metro Growth in 2020<div class="ExternalClass34C93A6ECF1B42EC845E6DB3DD56B398"><html> <p>​When the news gets out that Greater Phoenix is one of the top places in the nation to find a new job opportunity, people start heading to Arizona. Late in 2018 and early in 2019, that news started getting out in ranking after ranking. <br></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <em>By Eric Jay Toll for the PHXNewsroom</em> <br> </p> <p>Job opportunities await and a new population follows. The jobs available today are filling roles in the expanding knowledge economy, and growing technology, bioscience and manufacturing sectors. The quality of life in Phoenix is making it easier for companies to recruit from other areas.</p> <p> <em>This is the second in a series of three articles about indicators showing exceptional growth in the Phoenix and Arizona economies. The first article, “<a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/ced/1880">Phoenix Tops Nation in April Small Business Wage Gains; Arizona is Third​</a>,” was published on May 5. The third article, about the number of new housing starts in Greater Phoenix and how it compares nationally, will publish later the week of May 17.</em> </p> <p>As of July 1, 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that the metro area population grew by an average of 291 people every day. Maricopa County saw its population climb by 86,820, more than any other U.S. county. The entire Phoenix-Mesa-Chandler metro area grew by an estimated 106,008 to 5.1 million people, the fastest pace of the top 10 metro areas.</p> <p>Census Bureau population estimates differ from the 2020 Decennial Census in that the estimates are calculated projections for the period from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020. </p> <p>Jobs and quality of life are the magnets drawing new populations. More than 80 percent of Arizona’s 2020 population increase moved into Greater Phoenix. Normally, between 67 percent and 70 percent of Arizona’s population lives in Phoenix. With more people moving to Phoenix, the more companies looking to expand are drawn to the area for its quality workforce.</p> <p>The metro posted a 2.1 percent population gain, the 16th fastest percentage nationally. Greater Phoenix remains the 10th most populous metro area. The three largest metro areas, New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago, all lost substantial populations in 2020 compared to 2019.</p> <p>The new population in the Phoenix metro was helped by a steady birthrate, 57,251, up from 56,978 in 2019. Bucking the national trend of a declining birth rate, Greater Phoenix held constant, with an average of 57,000 over the last five years. </p> <p>In 2020, Phoenix added 6,590 people who moved here from foreign countries. The global in-migration, however, was down from nearly 8,300 in 2019. The 2020 number is less than half the 15,575 who moved here from an international address in 2015. The remaining population increases came from other states or counties within Arizona. Metro-to-metro and state-to-state migration data are released late in the summer.</p> <p>City population estimates are expected around the end of May. Population estimates are calculated by the Census Bureau using sampling techniques, birth and death rates, and new housing unit starts. The estimates are not the same as the actual population count that makes up the decennial census. Decennial census data won’t be released until late in 2021. The first official 2020 Census data released, the reapportionment census, pegged the state’s population at 7.2 million. <br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/econdevNewscedChart showing population gains in Maricopa and Pinal countiesCED#population #growth #phoenix #maricopa #economyphoenix, economic development, population, growth, expansion economy, maricopa, pinalEric Jay Toll602-617-3797eric.toll@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/52/Eric_Toll.jpgPHXEconDevThe Greater Phoenix population has been growing steadily over the past ten years, with some acceleration between 2019 and 2020.

Critical Incident Briefing: January 6, 2022 17th Avenue and Van Buren Streethttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2207Police1/20/2022 9:48:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/q68BMQjixwsCritical Incident Briefing: January 6, 2022 17th Avenue and Van Buren Street<div class="ExternalClass8C61546841744583B5600F86C8393388"><html>​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> <br>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 January 6, 2022 in the area 17th Avenue and Van Buren Street.<br><br>This incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. when a convenience store employee called 911 to report a number of customers told him about a man outside with a gun who was threatening to rob the store.  <br><br>“… But they said that he's flashed a gun and he's talking about robbing the place," said the convenience store employee to the 911 operator. <br><br>Two officers in the area arrived on scene about 3 minutes later.  They contacted 32-year-old Gary Sherrod who was seated outside the store. Sherrod stood up and officers noticed he had a gun in his hand. The two officers gave multiple commands for Sherrod to drop the gun, which he ignored. Sherrod held the gun in front of his body, moving it around in different directions.<br><br>The officers' body worn cameras were activated. However, the views were obstructed at times, including at the time of the shooting. <br><br>The officer who fired told investigators Sherrod pointed the weapon in his direction, which resulted in the officer-involved shooting. <br><br>Slightly more than a minute elapsed from the time the officers contacted Sherrod to the time of the officer-involved shooting.<br><br>After the shooting, officers could see Sherrod no longer had the gun. It was on the ground out of his reach. They moved in to detain him and provided medical aid until the Phoenix Fire Department arrived.  <br><br>Sherrod was transported to a local hospital to receive treatment for the gunshot wound. He is expected to survive his injuries and upon release from the hospital, will be booked in to jail.<br><br>The handgun used by Sherrod was recovered on scene and determined to be a pellet gun.<br><br>The officer involved in this shooting has been with the department for three years and is assigned to the Central City Precinct.<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. That is why you may see some parts of Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.​<br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
