LAPD Officers May Face Charges in False Gang Identification Case

Sixteen additional LAPD officers may face criminal charges in the investigation into falsified interview reports, in which some innocent motorists and pedestrians questioned by police were labeled as gang members in a database, according to an LAPD memo.

The memo confirms the total number of officers under investigation in the case is now 24, including 3 charged last week, 16 more who may face future criminal charges, and 5 others suspected of violating department policies but not of breaking the law. 

NBC4’s I-Team first reported in January that numerous officers from the LAPD’s Metropolitan Division were suspected of fabricating information about people they stopped during crime suppression patrols, possibly to falsely boost the officers’ daily productivity statistics, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
