Various Media Sources and Statements released by Phoenix Police Management indicate that between 20 and 40 police officers are under investigation for fraud and misconduct, by the Arizona Attorney General. The allegations are that the officers were collecting payment for off-duty security jobs they allegedly did not perform for at least one private company in South Phoenix.
Although the reports on the investigation ballooned all across the internet social networks, radio, and TV in early November 2010, media sources indicate it apparently began in 2007 with an internal investigation; and then allegedly was handed over to the Arizona Attorney General’s office to complete the review.
No further details regarding the allegations or investigation have been released. One news source indicated “indictments are expected to be announced very soon”. However, to date no formal charges or indictments against any of the Phoenix Police Officers have been officially confirmed or announced.
