Arpaio dials back on holiday music at jails

PHOENIX — Inmates at Maricopa County jails will no longer be subject to
around-the-clock holiday music this time of year.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio says the change comes after numerous complaints from inmates
and detention staff that the music was more irritating than joyful.

Beginning in 2005, Arpaio ordered that the music be played throughout all jail
facilities to ensure staff and inmates had some holiday cheer.

This year, the sheriffs says, holiday music from Alvin and The Chipmunks, Elvis
and others will only be played at the facilities for two hours in the morning
and two hours at night.
