Judge Orders Monitoring of Maricopa County Sheriff's Office

To make sure Joe Arpaio and staff stop with the racial profiling

|

PHOENIX — A federal judge has ordered the appointment of a monitor and a community advisory board to ensure that an Arizona sheriff is complying with constitutional requirements after finding his office engages in racial profiling.

U.S. District Judge Murray Snow ruled in May that Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office have unreasonably singled out Latinos.

Snow had delayed ordering remedies to allow time for parties to reach agreements, but disputes over key issues prevented consensus.
