Starting Wednesday, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will be using a live streaming video site to give a weekly address to the media and the public about law enforcement activity.
Arpaio also plans to use the program, titled " JMA TV-1 ", to respond to current issues related to the sheriff's office.
According to a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office press release, Arpaio will use the site to get his message out to the public, without it being censored or distorted by the media.
"I have never had any trouble getting media coverage, but this is an opportunity to get my message out the way I intend it and not left to the bias or agenda of certain media organizations," said Arpaio.
Sheriff Arpaio is already known for using social media websites like Twitter to express his views on hot topics and inform the public of immigration sweeps and other sheriff's office happenings.
