Holbrook, AZ: Every year, the National Institute for Jail Operations (NIJO) holds a conference in Scottsdale. During this conference, two of the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office Detention staff were recipients of awards. Detention Deputy Samuel Fa’apoii and Detention Sergeant Marty Boisvert were among 7 Arizona Sheriffs and three other recipients on June 7th.
Detention Deputy Fa’apoi has been with NCSO for 8 years, and in those years, he has become a Field Training Officer, a Computer Voice Stress Analyzer, and has acted as Officer in Charge when needed. Deputy Fa’apois’s peers and supervisors describe him as dependable, positive, eager to complete tasks, dedicated, and committed. He received the Dedication of Excellence Award.
Detention Sergeant Boisvert has been with NCSO for 11 years. Sergeant Boisvert has an extensive history of working in the detention field. He was promoted to sergeant in 2021, and since then he has trained new sergeants and was in charge of our most recent Detention Academy. Sergeant Boisvert is one of our firearms instructors, taser instructors, and a member of our Honor Guard. His peers and supervisors state he encourages all staff to be involved and pursue different paths within the agency. He brings ideas on how to improve, educate and keep the agency up to date with the most current tools. Sergeant Boisvert received the Detention Supervisor of the Year.
Sheriff Clouse and the entire Sheriff’s Office are proud of these two men who represent our Office so well. They were up against 14 other county employees for these awards. We would like to congratulate them both.
