Gov. Jan Brewer has ordered Arizona's police training board to reissue SB 1070 training materials to law enforcement agencies in the state before the end of the week. A U.S. Supreme Court decision on the anti-illegal immigration law is expected to be handed down next week.
Brewer issued an executive order Tuesday directing the Arizona Peace Officers Standards and Training Board to redistribute training materials that local police agencies can use to train their officers on enforcing the law.
Enforcement of most of SB 1070 has been blocked since 2010 under a preliminary injunction.
Brewer ordered AZPOST to revamp a DVD included in the training by adding chapters and including summaries of the chapters.
She also ordered that the materials include "an explanation of the documents law enforcement officers can use to determine whether identification presented to them is sufficient to presume a person is not a lawfully present alien."
She also told the training agency to supplement the materials with any guidance the Supreme Court might provide within 30 days of a decision.
