In 1978 Del Webb Corporation started the second retirement community in Arizona, known as Sun City West. Twenty years later, Sun City West had attracted over 30,000 residents from all across the globe. Today, Sun City West encompasses eleven square miles and has a population just under 25,000. Sun City West is one of the safest communities in Arizona, thanks to the efforts of the volunteer “Sheriff’s Posse.” This group of volunteers is the first to patrol and is largely responsible for keeping the neighborhoods and residents safe.
