Statement by Attorney General Terry Goddard on Colorado City

Thank you for coming this afternoon.  I appreciate the opportunity to share with you what the Attorney General’s office has been done with regard to Colorado City. 

I am proud of the efforts my office has taken to make sure every child in Arizona is safe and secure.  Of course, I cannot comment on our work with abused and neglected children because we must protect the privacy of these children and their families.
