ACLU Releases Racial Profiling App in Arizona
The smartphone application, online forms, an interactive map and a telephone hotline will catalog and track cases where people believed they were racially profiled by officers from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and other departments.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona on Tuesday unveiled a new campaign and smartphone app focused on documenting people’s stories of police racial profiling.
The campaign, called United Against 1070, will use a new smartphone application, online forms, an interactive map and a telephone hotline to catalog and track cases where people believed they were racially profiled by officers from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and other departments.
Alessandra Soler, executive director of ACLU-AZ, said the campaign will compile public documentation of Section 2(B) of Senate Bill 1070, popularly known as the “show me your papers” provision.
