On Friday, September 26, 2008, PLEA hand carried a packet of documents over to the State Attorney General’s Office asking for a legal opinion regarding the propriety of upper level police managers retiring from a law enforcement agency but then being rehired by the same agency with a different title and some additional responsibilities.
Shortly after October 9, 2008, PLEA received a response from the Attorney General which stated in part that …”PLEA is not a state agency. Under Arizona law, my Office is only permitted to provide legal services and opinions to departments and agencies of the State of Arizona, and may not render legal opinions to private individuals or entities. A.R.S. § 41-192.”
