Maricopa County sheriff's deputies began using fluorescent pink handcuffs Thursday to transport inmates.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio said he introduced the pink handcuffs because he was tired of losing them to his own deputies and other law enforcement agencies. He ordered 1,000 of the pink handcuffs, which are made in England, at $19.44 each. The regular ones cost $18.84 a pop.
"We presume nobody else has pink handcuffs, so we can spot them and know they're ours," he said
Patrol deputies will still carry the silver cuffs, which they pay for themselves.
The new cuffs will go well with the county's color scheme. Maricopa County inmates wear pink boxers and sleep on pink sheets.

Only England would make PINK handcuffs. Where's Messy....that's so ghey.
I can see a different color....but pink??? I think that's more punishment for the cops that have to carry them....not the inmates. They are already subjected to pink....handcuffs won't bother them. Can you see the deputies going out for a dinner break....hey officer...nice pink handcuffs. Are they furlined too?

Arpaio is a cock. We need a sheriff that is more worried about lowering crime rate than he is about his ****ing PR image. As long as W. Steven Martin didn't get elected, though, I'll take Arpaio any day.

Pink... the fag-factor... good way to get the inmates more docile.
