PHOENIX (AP) - The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office will hold a series of community meetings on Dec. 21 in connection with a court case in which the agency was found to have systematically racially profiled Latinos during its patrols.

The meetings were ordered by U.S. District Judge Murray Snow in what the judge said was an effort to rebuild public confidence in the agency.

Snow ruled in late May that the agency systematically singled out Latinos in its regular traffic and special immigration patrols. Snow later ordered the appointment of an independent monitor to ensure that the agency isn't making unconstitutional arrests.

The agency says it's not yet known whether Sheriff Joe Arpaio will attend the meetings in Sun Lakes, Avondale, Sun City, Cave Creek, Queen Creek, Fountain Hills and Mesa.
