Judge: Monitors will watch over Arpaio's office

PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -

Lawyers from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and the ACLU were hammering out a 78-page framework agreement after a federal judge ruled that independent monitors will be used to watch over the sheriff's office to prevent racial profiling.

Judge G. Murray Snow made the ruling Friday and the agreement will outline the type of practices the sheriff's office will use and follow to prevent future racial profiling.

During Friday's hearing in Phoenix, attorneys remained at odds over several key remedies including the appointment of a monitor to make sure the agency adheres to constitutional requirements. Arpaio's office is also objecting to having deputies provide a reason for pulling over a vehicle before approaching the driver.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio was not in court Friday.

Snow has said he plans on implementing an independent monitor with a law enforcement background to keep watch over the sheriff's office.

Arpaio has been vocal in his opposition to the monitor, but the judge said the person would probably not have authority over decisions and actions within the department.

The ACLU wants deputies to have dashcams and audio recorders in all patrol cars and for deputies to record data on their traffic stops.

MCSO attorneys said they're going to implement a new e-ticketing program that provides a receipt explaining why someone was stopped by deputies, whether they are cited or not.

That's supposed to be implemented within 180 days of when this agreement is accepted by both parties.

A judge previously ruled that the monitors were necessary after hearing a racial profiling case against the sheriff's office and finding that deputies did racially profile Latinos.

"The judge's decision to appoint a court monitor, along with other measures, is a victory against Arpaio's abuse of power, but it doesn't address the bigger issue, the need for a federal comprehensive immigration reform that ends the suffering, ends the deportations, ends the fear in the community of 11 million undocumented people in the U.S. who simply want a better life," Promise Arizona Executive Director Petra Falcon said. 

A final ruling is expected by mid-September.
