COLORADO CITY, Ariz. — Sheriff's deputies have begun daily patrols in a northern Arizona community with a polygamist enclave.
State Attorney General Tom Horne's office had provided funding for law enforcement in Colorado City, located in a remote area between the Grand Canyon and Utah. The money comes from assets seized in criminal drug prosecutions.
The grant followed an unsuccessful legislative attempt to abolish Colorado City's Marshal's Office replace it with sheriff's deputies.
Mohave County Sheriff Tom Sheahan said Friday that his his office is focused on rooting out corruption in Colorado City and helping community members in need.
A lawsuit recently filed in federal court accuses Colorado City and Hildale, Utah, of civil rights violations. Attorneys for the towns have said the allegations are unsupported.
