PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona officials plan to release a training program designed to teach police officers to implement the state's new crackdown on illegal immigration without racially profiling.

Gov. Jan Brewer ordered the Arizona Peace Officer Standards and
Training Board to develop the training when she signed the law April 23.

Opponents have challenged the law as unconstitutional and have
asked that a judge block it from taking effect. The law generally requires police officers enforcing another law to question a person's immigration status if there's a reasonable suspicion that the person is in the country illegally.
