BREAKING: Anaheim Reaches Agreement with Federal Government for Investigation of APD
Posted by Chris Nguyen on July 24, 2012
Over the weekend, Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait contacted the U.S. Attorney’s office and the State Attorney General’s office to ask that they launch full, independent investigations of the Anaheim Police shootings.
The federal prosecutors at the U.S. Attorney’s office told the City they would be willing to investigate.
Just moments ago, the Anaheim City Council voted unanimously to accept an offer from the U.S. Attorney’s office to conduct a “full investigation” of the Anaheim Police’s officer-involved shootings.
This is in addition to the Council’s action last month to have the City Manager hire an outside investigator to examine the Anaheim Police Department’s officer-involved shootings.
