County Attorney Announces Filing of Charges in Two Cases Involving On-Duty Law Enforcement Officers

County Attorney Allister Adel

Statement from County Attorney Allister Adel:
“To ensure that the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is best able to protect victim’s rights and hold criminals accountable in the pursuit of justice, it is important that this agency has a collaborative, working relationship with public safety professionals. However, this partnership will not impact charging decisions when it is necessary to hold those in the public safety profession accountable for their actions. The alleged criminal acts in both cases were committed by individuals who are sworn to protect and serve their community. I am committed to ensuring that we will hold individuals who commit crimes accountable, regardless of their profession or relationship with this office.”
