One of the primary focuses of our organization is the documentation of abuses at the hands of law enforcement officials, institutions, businesses, and other individuals. Relationships have been developed with the appropriate entities whose responsibility it is to investigate and prosecute alleged abuses. These entities include: the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, Tucson Police Independent Auditor, South Tucson Police Department, Labor Commission of Arizona, the Joint Intake Center, Office of Inspector General, and the Office of Professional Responsibility. By documenting the abuses and reporting them to the appropriate authorities on behalf of victims, a barrier of safety is achieved, and the demand for accountability firmly established.
If you believe that your rights have been violated or that you have been abused by law enforcement or others, contact Derechos Humanos at 520.770.1373 or 1.800.682.4280.
You can also visit our Abuse Clinic every Tuesday and Friday, 5:30pm – 7:30pm at the Derechos Humanos office– 631 S. 6th Avenue (near the corner of 6th Avenue and 17th Street).
