Hopi Woman Realizes Dream of Being in Law Enforcement

Marlaina Joe, of the Hopi Tribe, recently graduated from the Central Arizona Regional Law Officers Training Academy (CARLOTA) and became a Hopi Ranger.

“It’s been a long-time dream,” she said after completing the 18-week, 720-hour intense training program.

The program requires early morning physical training prior to a full day of classes in uniform. CARLOTA students are discouraged from interacting with other students on Central Arizona College’s campus in Casa Grande, where the military-style program is run.

“I studied a lot and stayed focused on my work,” Joe said in a press release. “But it was worth it. What you put into it is what you get out of it. It wasn’t given to me, I had to earn it.”

The responsibility she’s most excited about is caring for and regulating animals.

Hopi Tribe Chairman LeRoy Shingoitewa attended the CARLOTA graduation and said Joe is an inspiration.

“It was certainly a proud moment for Marlaina, her family and our tribe,” he said in the release.  “When we see the results of hard work and determination come to fruition, particularly in a career such as law enforcement, we can say with pride that she is a role model.”
