More about this item

Overcrowded jails and shrinking budgets equal early release for prisoners in most communities. Not so in Maricopa County, Arizona, where Sheriff Joe Arpaio houses inmates in surplus army tents dating from the Korean War. And while the summer temperatures in the desert can reach 120 degrees, Sheriff Joe reasons that if tents were good enough for the troops of Desert Storm, they are good enough for convicted criminals. 
 
"America's Toughest Sheriff" is an unfiltered account of Sheriff Joe's "get smart and get tough" approach to jail. Tents are only the beginning. Green bologna, pink boxer shorts, and chain gangs are all part of his philosophy that jail should be punishment--period. He believes that criminals should never live better in jail than they do on the outside. 
 
Called the "Alcatraz of Arizona," the Tent City Jail features discipline, hard work, and a total absence of frills. By eliminating coffee and feeding convicts sandwiches at lunch, Arpaio has shaved $500,000 annually from the cost of keeping prisoners. And that's only the beginning of the changes he has initiated on this way to achieving an 85 percent approval rating from his constituents.
