NCSO's Lieutenant Toni Garver retires

Retiring from 35 years of law enforcement, Lieutenant Toni Garver worked with Show Low Police Department for six years, followed by 29 years with Navajo County Sheriff’s Department. “I built a 35 floor building; every year another floor,” said Garver.

NAVAJO COUNTY – Thirty-five years ago, a very young Toni Garver decided to embark on a career in law enforcement, and on July 19, after 29 years with the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office and 6 years with the Show Low Police Department, she retired.

Growing up with six other siblings and a father who was a busy doctor was hard for Garver. Her mom died in 1978 when she was only 10 years old.
