When Arizona's controversial immigration law goes into effect at the end of this month, police officers will be under close scrutiny in their enforcement. A new video hopes to make Arizona's police force equal to that scrutiny. The video was required by Jan Brewer at the law's signing on April 23, and it's been mailed out to all 170 police districts the state. We speak with Larry Talvy, a marshal from Tombstone, Arizona, who has watched the video, about what anxieties it reveals and what situations it hopes to prevent. 

Some news sites are already compiling notable bits of the hour-long training aid. Here's an example:

Dear Celeste:
I listened to your interview with Larry Talvy on the new Arizona immigration law.
I was glad to hear him not back down or give in to your biased questioning.
Regards,
Stanley Lecznar
