Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (ar-PY’-oh) allows online users to browse through the photos and then vote on their favorites that will be highlighted on a “Mugshot of the Day” section.
The top picks so far aren’t unexpected: They’re the most disheveled, unusual looking people among those booked into the downtown Phoenix jail.
Arpaio says he hopes the increased Web traffic will highlight the work of his employees.
He also says more crimes may be uncovered if the public can view the photos. The website is www.mcso.org.
