Commander Craig Lloyd, SLSP

Please join me in welcoming another new member to the Sun Lakes Sheriff’s Posse.

Dr. Max Almodovar has been volunteering in the Sun Lakes Posse for the past year and assisting in various community events serving the needs of the Sun Lakes residents, while undergoing a very thorough law enforcement vetting and training to wear the patch and badge of Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).

Max and his family moved to Arizona in 2005 after he completed a hospital surgical residency program in New York.

He graduated from Temple University School of Dental Medicine.

Dr. Almodovar is currently teaching as an adjunct faculty professor at A.T. Still University in Mesa, Ariz., as well as working as a faculty doctor at St. Vincent De Paul Dental Resident Medical Program.

Prior to his medical career and while pursuing his education, Max was a Tuolumne County Deputy Sheriff for six years in California, and a city police officer in Cheltenham, Pa.

Max enjoys giving back in the Sun Lakes community, and with his law enforcement experience of protecting and serving, will supplement our night shift coverage in a fully-marked Sheriff’s patrol vehicle supporting the deputies in Sun Lakes.

Dr. Max Almodovar is a 5’8”, 215-pound, stocky, bald, friendly, personable, caring, and understanding individual who is looking forward to being part of this great Sun Lakes community.

As the Sun Lakes Sheriff’s Posse continues to serve our community’s needs, we are always looking for high-quality individuals like Max to join our ranks. Visit our website at, or stop by to pick up an application.
