MCSO — Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone will join Anthem Community Executive Officer Neal
Shearer and other community leaders Dec. 8 in marking the public grand opening of the MCSO
substation at the Anthem Civic Building. The two leaders will make remarks and cut a ribbon to
officially dedicate the substation.
The event will take place Saturday beginning at 10:30am at the Anthem Civic Building, located
at 3701 West Anthem Way, Anthem, AZ 85086. The ribbon cutting will be a part of Anthem’s
monthly “Java & Jammin’” event, which runs from 9:30-11:30am, and features live music,
refreshments and other activities.
The substation lobby will be open for the public to view following the dedication.
Though MCSO has had presence in Anthem since the community was established in 1999, this
event reflects the strengthening of the partnership between the Sheriff’s office and the
community. MCSO’s public safety services will continue to be available around the clock, and
the substation lobby now will be open to the public Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm for community
members to interact with MCSO staff.
Also in attendance at the event will be Anthem Community Council executive staff and members
of the Board of Directors, Daisy Mountain Fire District, MCSO North Valley Posse, Phoenix
Police, and Anthem Neighborhood Watch.
Anthem CEO Neal Shearer said, “We look forward to the Anthem substation being open to the
public, and for the opportunity to build on our longstanding partnership with MCSO. The public
safety services provided by MCSO are vitally important to Anthem and to all unincorporated
areas in the North Valley.
Sheriff Paul Penzone added “Our relationship to our community is vital to our public safety
mission. This substation will facilitate even more chances for us to interact with those that we
are committed to serving. I want to thank our supervisors and deputies for their dedication to
this mission and Anthem’s leaders for their assistance in making this day happen.”
