CLIFF DIAMOND

Cliff Diamond was one of SATAI's original founding members who helped form the original Corporation Papers and By Laws. Before the organization was an organization, he was one of the folks that kicked around the idea of whether it would work or not. Jim Botsko said, “When we originally had the idea, we knew we had to get most, if not all, the local police organizations involved to make it work.” Cliff was the Scottsdale guy. The original group had a couple meetings a month, for a couple years, before they finally got the guts to make SATAI happen. Early on, Cliff was very involved but as he moved up in rank, fairly quickly as it turned out, he couldn't spend as much time with the group as he wanted. However, during his involvement, he was on the board for several terms, then secretary, then treasurer and of course, Vice President and President. Cliff eventually attained the rank Asst. Chief in Scottsdale and later, a Chief in at least two other agencies, one being Oxnard, Ca.
