PHOENIX — A retired Phoenix Police Department policeman on the “Brady list” has voluntarily relinquished his license to work as an officer in Arizona.

FULL DISCLOSURE: ARIZONA’S BROKEN BRADY LISTS

The Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board approved the action against Anthony Armour during a meeting on Wednesday.

Board officials told ABC15 a case was opened against Armour’s certification in August.

Earlier this year, ABC15 began broadcasting and publishing reports about Armour as part of a larger investigation into problems with Arizona’s “Brady lists.”

The lists are used by prosecution agencies to track officer’s with integrity concerns, including documented lies and past crimes.

Evidence regarding Armour’s past misconduct and dishonesty were unconstitutionally kept from a defendant and her attorneys in a criminal case.

Armour has also been accused by multiple women, including a fellow officer, of sex assault.

ABC15 has confirmed those allegations are receiving a fresh review.

Editor’s note: ABC15 will air a special hour-long investigation into problems with Arizona’s Brady lists on December 29 at 7 p.m.
