Our methods: The nationwide spread of the ‘constitutional sheriff’

The Howard Center for Investigative Journalism, in collaboration with AZCIR, spent the past seven months researching the national expansion of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. The resulting project is a first-of-its-kind look at the nationwide impact of the group, which trains law enforcement officers and others that sheriffs have the right to ignore state or federal laws they deem unjust or unconstitutional.
