Maricopa County sheriff hires constitutional expert

Immigration PatrolsThe Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will spend up to $200,000 for a law-enforcement policies and constitutional law expert who will train staff and evaluate the agency’s internal policies.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved the contract with North Carolina-based Thomas and Means Law Firm on Wednesday.

Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan says Randy Means was first brought in about 2 ½ years ago after a national search for a leadership-training expert.

The review will include concerns raised by the American Civil Liberties Union and the U.S. Department of Justice in recent lawsuits against the sheriff’s office over its policing methods. Sheridan tells The Arizona Republic the hiring isn’t tied to just those cases.
