A recent Phoenix police policy change does not violate a controversial state immigration law, the Arizona Attorney General’s Office said Monday.

In its finding, the office said the department’s policy limiting when officers can ask someone about their immigration status did not violate SB 1070 because it included a partnership with federal immigration officials and made clear Phoenix is not a sanctuary city.

Republican state Sen. John Kavanagh (R-Fountain Hills) complained in September about the new policy.
