The retired police chief tapped to oversee court-ordered reforms of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will host a community meeting at Phoenix’s central library at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The chief of staff for the monitor of the Sheriff’s Office says the meeting at Burton Barr Central Library will focus on court-ordered training for deputies and staff. There may also be updates on policy changes or other major reforms of the agency. Attendees will get a chance to ask questions and share concerns.

A spokesman says Sheriff Paul Penzone will be at the meeting.

In late November, the judge overseeing the case scolded Penzone by having left the last meeting early.

A study released in 2019 found that traffic stops involving Latinos and black drivers were more likely to be longer and end in arrests.
