Public meeting set as part of Maricopa County Sheriff profiling case

PHOENIX - An official appointed by a judge to monitor Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office in a racial profiling case is scheduled to hold a Sept. 24 community meeting in Guadalupe in an effort to build public confidence in the police agency.

Court monitor Robert Warshaw is set to hold the meeting at Frank Elementary School.

The judge overseeing the case ruled in May 2013 that Arpaio's office had systematically racially profiled Latinos in its regular traffic and immigration patrols.

Arpaio denies his officers have racially profiled people and has appealed the ruling.

The judge ordered that public meetings be held to build confidence in the sheriff's office and inform the community about policy changes made by the agency.

Guadalupe was the location of one of Arpaio's first major immigration patrols.
