The “posse program” launched by former Sheriff Joe Arpaio is under investigation by Arpaio’s successor, Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone. Arpaio, convicted of criminal contempt for willful refusal to comply with a federal court order – and later pardoned by President Trump – said he formed the posses to protect citizens and free up sheriff’s officers for other duty. Others claim it was merely a political stunt by Arpaio to promote his own agenda.
Some criticisms of the posse program included the following:
What’s next for the posse groups? Well, for now, they’ll be reviewed. Questions concerning their necessity, the training of members, and how these groups will be held accountable are all on the table. We’ll venture a guess that some, perhaps most, of these groups will be disbanded when the review is concluded.
