The Arizona Sheriff’s Association (ASA) sent a letter to Attorney General Mark Brnovich supporting Pima County Sheriff Mark Napier’s request for state review of the misuse of RICO funds under the previous administration. Arizona Sheriffs share Sheriff Napier’s concern regarding the appropriate use of RICO funds and ensuring the misuse of these funds is thoroughly addressed. Law enforcement uses RICO funds to disrupt and dismantle criminal organizations by taking their assets. Funds seized through these investigations support local law enforcement and community groups engaged in crime prevention programs. Sheriff Napier has met with the Attorney General and representatives from his office. He has confidence in the Attorney General and believes his request for additional review is being properly addressed. Sheriff Napier is very appreciative of the support of the ASA and the excellent relationships we have with Sheriffs from across the state.
