In this story, the reporters discover how a former Tampa police chief violated a Law Enforcement ethics code written by a committee of which he was the member. The violation took place when he appeared in a series of ads for a company that supplied the department with millions of dollars of equipment. It did not end there. Not only were there problems with this equipment, but the company also received a soul source provider contract from the department.
