MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's attorney general has brought together a number of state agencies to form an alliance to fight public corruption in the Yellowhammer State.

Attorney General Luther Strange announced the Special Prosecutions Alliance on Thursday, saying it is all the more important to protect the integrity of government and taxpayers' money during times of scarce resources.

Among the state agencies the alliance brings together are The Department of Examiners of Public Accounts, the Ethics Commission, Department of Public Safety, Insurance Department and Criminal Justice Information Center.

Strange has tapped Special Prosecutor Matt Hart to lead the division. Hart says officials who violate the public trust can expect to be held to account regardless of their political affiliation or position.
