Hold law enforcement accountable
I view this office as critical to ensure that police are honest, fair, and use force appropriately with all Arizonans. Investigations of police shootings, police brutality, and other police misconduct will be assigned to an independent and community-involved unit separate from other prosecutors. Our system of prosecution relies on partnerships with law enforcement to investigate and prove cases. It presents a conflict of interest that prosecutors would be asked to simultaneously rely on and hold officers accountable, whether it be for use of force or any other misconduct.
