The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) was recently provided information containing serious allegations against a Department employee. An investigation into those allegations was immediately launched; as a result, the trooper was arrested and booked into the Maricopa County Jail on eight counts of theft and eight counts of misconduct involving weapons.
The trooper has also been administratively suspended.
AZDPS holds our employees to the highest standard. AZDPS is committed to full transparency and will provide an update as the investigation continues.
