Cooperation in Building Safer Communities
Diego PD went through an audit conducted by the Department of Justice and the
Police Executive Research Foundation. The focus of the audit was to
identify areas where the Department can improve the manner by which we hire and
complete background investigations, investigate police officer misconduct, and
discipline the officers when misconduct is identified. It was a long
process and many within the Department were concerned that the process will
become a "blame game" but I feel the process helped us identify areas
for improvement in hiring the best candidates. This audit stemmed from
several cases of officer misconduct that surfaced related to sexual abuse and
improprieties accomplished while the officers were on-duty. The results
were released to the public this week and there has been much discussion
related to whether all recommendations are feasible.
