AG Horne To Testify Today At House Committee Hearing on Colorado City Police Force Decertification

Attorney General Tom Horne will testify this afternoon in the House Government Committee in favor of SB 1433, a measure that would require that any municipality where 50% or more of the police have had their AZPOST certification revoked over an eight year period would forfeit their law enforcement functions to the county.

(AZPOST is the statewide regulatory entity for law enforcement officers).

Should this bill become law, the police force in Colorado City would be subject to decertification; if it is decertified, police protection would be provided by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office. 

A private investigator who has investigated activities in Colorado City as well as two court-appointed fiduciaries will also testify.
