Case Study: Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office

on ‎12-17-2013 09:28 AM

The Challenge


Need for centralization

With a population of over 3.8 million, Arizona’s Maricopa County is one of the largest counties in the United States. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is responsible for policing Maricopa County’s 9,200 square miles. In addition to the law enforcement mission of the Office, the Sheriff is mandated to operate jail facilities for the care and control of pretrial inmates. Average daily

population for the seven jail facilities has been as high as 10,000 inmates. Sheriff Joe ensures the provision of these services through the efforts of 3,300 employees and a volunteer posse of 3,000 men and women covering every corner of this huge territory.


The Sheriff’s office was introducing a new data-intensive computer-aided dispatch system for emergency 911 calls. Client Virtualization was introduced to protect the county security and ensure high availability of data. Alongside this a VMware virtualization program was embarked upon, covering 95 percent of its servers.


"Implementing a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) has been on our radar for many years now. Doing this with HP Client Virtualization ensures the high availability and security of data that is essential for protecting our citizens."

– Chip Lemons, senior systems/network administrator, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office
