California Police Chief- Fall 2013 - Page 10

Once released only to police chiefs, so-called investigation letters now lay out, in pages of detail, the events leading up to each OIS, the investigation, and the legal findings that support conclusions. Welter says such a change has helped ease tensions and raised public confidence in law enforcement. Still, he says, as recent events in Anaheim indicate, a lot of work remains to be done. After the Operation Halo sweep, some residents spread rumors that Anaheim officers were randomly arresting kids. “All those suspects we arrested were documented gang members or ones seen selling guns or drugs,” Welter says. “We didn’t just randomly pick somebody off the street.” “There are times v?V?F?RV&?2??f?&?F?????ff?6W"?VVG2F?&R?WB??g&??B??BF?W&R&RF??W0?v?V?6??Vg2?VVBF?&R?( ??R6?2?N( ?2?&?6?F???6??r???VBFV??rv?F???F?W"6??G&?fW'6?W2???R?bF?R??v?W7B&?f??P???f??fVBF?RfF?6???F??r???7F?&W"#??b?????6R6?v2'&?F?6???r'&???7F?6?G?P?vV?????ff?6W"6??B???v???R6?6??rf?W ?'W&v?'2??7F???r???f?"??R?bF?R'W&v?'??7W7V7G2??f?W''??b&?FW7G2f????vVBF?R6???F??r?b?V????W??FW"?#?( ?v?V?vRvV?BF??"F?F??"F?B??&???r?vP?7??RF????V??Rv???&?fFV?BF?V? ?F??'7FW?6?B?( ?F?????RfW'??V6?f?"v?@???^( ?fRF??R?vR&V??&V6?FR?B?( ?'WBF?W?( ?&P???Bv???rF?&R6???rF?BV&?6?&V6W6RF?W??fV"&WG&?'WF????( ?f?7W2??6???V??G?&V?F???0?????232?V'2BF?R6?F?Vv???6RFW'F?V?B??vV?FW.( ?276?v??V?G2?fR??6?VFVB??F?&7?6?P?7VB?5tB?&?&&W'??6???B'W6R?BF?P????6?FR??fW7F?vF???2V??B???2W?V7WF?fP?76?v??V?G2?fR??6?VFVB??FW&??ff?'2?7G&FVv?0??????r???f?&?F???FV6?????w??BF?R??6P???FV??vV?6RV??B?v?F?'VFvWB7WG2?B7Fff??r&VGV7F???2?F?B??"?0?vWGF??rF?Vv?W"??R6?2??( ?F?W&^( ?2??B?b?VVB?'WB??FVB&W6?W&6W2??W ???"?2F?'&W7BV??R?'WBvR7V?Bf"F???V6??F??R'&W7F??rV??R???F??fRF?V?6???r?W@??b&?6??'?F?R'W6??B?gVV?VB'?F?R7FF^( ?2?Wp?&V?v??V?B??7???v^( ?&R??B7V?F??rV??Vv??`??W"&W6?W&6W2??7&??R&WfV?F????( ??R6?2????V???vV?FW"?2v?&???r??'F?W'6??2v?F??V?F?F?W2??RF?R?vV?2F??V?gV?B?B7W?'@???6R?WG&V6?&?w&?2F&vWFVBB6???G&V???W7V6???F??6Rv???fR??v?rFW'&?F?&?W2??P?&V6?v?W2F?B????bF?V?&RgV??W&&?RF??&V7'V?F?V?B&V6W6RF?V?"&V?G2&Rv?&???p?6WfW&???'2?W7BF?vWB'???F?R??V????6RFW'F?V?B?&VG??2?6?2B??G2&?w&??'WBvV?FW"6?2F?W&^( ?2??VVB?f?"W???R?f?"??6Rf?F?&R6V?B?W@???F??V?v?&?&???G22&W6?W&6Rf?"&W6?FV?G2?F?P?f?6?&?f?FR6??WFW'2?VGV6F????FW&??2???BgV?7F?f?F?W2f?"6???G&V??Bf??W2v???P?&V'V??F??rG'W7F??r&V?F???6??2???F?W"6??6W@??RV?'&6W2?2F?R??V??f???W7F?6R6V?FW"??F?W&R???6Rv?&?v?F??F?W"7F?V???FW'2F?F6??P?F?R?77VR?bf???V?6R??F?R???R?v??6??gFV??VG0?F?f???V?6R??F?R7G&VWB??B?2F?R???6V?FW"?b?G0????B??F?R6?V?G???( ?vR?VVBF?&R6VV?2??&RF???W7B6?2v???'&W7BV??R?( ??R6?2?( ?WfW'???6R6??Vb?VVG2F?6??F?V?6V?fW2?( ?v?B??v???rF??F???rF???RF?ffW&V?6R????6???V??G???FW'F?V?B???B?W"&?fW76????( ?( ?V??R7V&?V7BF?&V??rf?7F???VB??&R?gFV?F????F?W'3?( ?( ?vV?FW"6?2??&?R&V???27G&??r??'B&V6W6P??R7G&?fW2F????F???V?6???V??6F???v?F?F?P?&????B?f??RF?&?Vv?fV?VW22( ?6??Vn( ?26?&?W.( ???F?RvV?7?( ?2??G&?WB?2vV??2&VwV?"???WFR6W76???2??v??6??R?7vW'2VW7F???2g&???ff?6W'2?B6?f???FW'F?V?B?V?&W'2?WB?bF?P?&W6V?6R?bF?V?"7WW'f?6?'2?^( ?2F???r6???"&?6?v?F???V??&W6?FV?G2?W7V6???F??6Rv???fR??v?r??fW7FV@??V?v?&?&???G2??( ?F??2?2??R?b?W"&?vvW7B6???V?vW3???rF?vP?6??F??VRF?v?&???F?W6R?V?v?&?&???G2v?W&P?F?W&R?2?6??bG'W7C?( ?vV?FW"6?2?( ??rF?vP?&V'V??BF?RG'W7BF?BvR?Bv?V?F?W&R&R??B?`?V??R7F?fV?G'???rF?V?FW&??R?C?( ?F?R?7vW'2?vV?FW"6?2??W7B6??Rg&??F?RF??G'W7B?2F?R?W??v?F??WF?6???7&??R7FFWv?FR?fW"F?R?7BGv???V'2?vV?FW"?F?6?FW2??&Rv?rf???V?6R?@?76V?G2????6R?ff?6W'2?( ?v?V???^( ?&R??6R6??Vb???R?VVBF?&V?V?&W ?F?B??R&RV?F??FV?&W7??6?&?Rf?"v?@?WfW'???R????W"FW'F?V?BF?W2???fRF?G'W7@?F?B?ff?6W'2v???F?F?RF???w2F?BvRW?V7BF?V?F?F???B?7F????fRF?BG'W7B?( ??vV?FW"F???G&?7&V?7?F???F?W"?WfV?gFW"F?P??W??FW"6???F??rv?V??R6?VBF?RB??( ?2?ff?6P?F???R??&R??f?&?F???V&?2f????v??r?ff?6W&??f??fVB6???F??r?( ?F????v^( ?&Rf6??r???7&V6??r??V?B?b6?f???V?&W7B?( ?vV?FW"6?2?( ?V??R&R7G'Vvv??rF???P?V?G2?VWB?BF?V?"??G2F??( ?B?fRV??Vv??6?F?fP?&??R??FV?2?"?V?F??gFW'66????7F?f?F?W2?( ????6R6??Vg2??R6?2??fR( ?v??FV???'GV??G?( ?F?&WGFW"F?V?"vV?6?W2?B&W?"g&?VB&V?F???0?v?F?6W'F??6Vv?V?G2?bF?V?"6???V??F?W2?&??"F?F?R?W??FW"6???F??r?F?R?&?vP?6?V?G?B??( ?2?ff?6Rv?V?B&?f?FR?????FV@???f?&?F??????7F???R?vR?WGFW"v?F?f??F??w0??B????6?2?"6??6?W6???2?vV?FW"?26??f?FV?BF?BF?R??V???B?v????vVF?W"F?R7W'&V?B7F?&??F?7G&?7BGF?&?W?( ?2?ff?6R??fW7F?vF???6??6?VFV@????&6?#?F?BF?R??V???ff?6W"v??6??@??W??FW"6???GFVB??7&??R?6??6R#??&vV?2&W7V?B?bvV?FW"6???rf? ???&RF?66??7W&R?F?RB??( ?2?ff?6R??r?7G2??G2vV'6?FRFWF??VB&W7V?G2?b??2??fW7F?vF???2???????&V???BF?R&FvP??%D"??v???R?f??#"???FB?????vV?FW"?2?6?6??7V?FVB?BG&??VB?F?W ?vV?6?W2????FW&???6??r?W&F???2F?&?Vv??W@?F?Rv?&?B?&V6???rF?R&V?Vf?G2?b6???V??G????6??r?B&?&?V??6??f??r&?6??( ?F?????N( ?2v???rF?&R6???V?v??r?'WB????rF??0?FW'F?V?B&V??F?W2vWB?B??FW&?2?b?( ???rF??vRvWBB&?&?V?2F?B6??G&?'WFRF?7&??S?v?@??2?B&?WBF?R7V6?f?2??6F???v?W&RV??R?fP?F?B6VV?2F?GG&7B7&??R??Bv??&R6W'F??( ?b????^( ?&Rv???rF?F??2??vR?F?V???^( ?fP??FR??&?w&W72???R?fV?( ?B?V?VBFWfV??F?P??W?BvV?W&F????b?W"&?fW76?????B??^( ?fR??7@?F?R??'GV??G??( ?( ?WfW'???6R6??Vb?VVG2F?6??( ?v?B??v???p?F?F???rF???RF?ffW&V?6R???6???V??G????FW'F?V?B??B?W"&?fW76????( ?( ?( ??f??# ???????????"?3?3r??
