I had blogged a while back about the Berkley, CA chief who sent an officer to the home of a reporter late in the night when the chief had a concern about a news article the reporter wrote. While I don't particularly want to highlight a colleague's troubles, I do find these two incidents particularly interesting. The Berkley chief is involved in a controversy again-this time regarding the department's involvement in the investigation of the chief's son's stolen i-phone. There were about ten investigators involved in the search for the i-phone and some folks are raising concerns that the resources expended on the phone search was over the top and preferential. Here is a link to the article. http://www.mercurynews.com/news/ci_20695019/berkeley-police-chief-defends-actions-chase-his-sons?source=rss
I am interested in your thoughts. Do you think the chief should face any scrutiny or discipline over these acts?
