Description

This special investigative show highlights KGTV's relentless reporting into the San Diego Police Department's culture and conduct, revealing a culture of cronyism that tolerated corrupt officers, allowed crimes to be covered up and crippled the SDPD's ability to retain public trust and police San Diego. This reporting led to the criminal conviction of one officer, the appointment of a new police chief, a dual criminal and administrative investigation into the department by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (ongoing at the time of this submission), and several policy changes by San Diego police. Former officer Christopher Hays pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a year in jail and probation in relation to charges he sexual abused women in his custody. The case prompted San Diego Police to establish a new policy requiring two officers to accompany any female in custody.
