Statement Related to Social Media Video of Retired Detective NR20175ne

***UPDATE***

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office has announced they will be reviewing 370 cases handled by the retired LAPD detective. The Department has pledged full cooperation with the process.

Los Angeles: It has come to the Department's attention that there is a video posted on social media of a retired LAPD detective. The individual in the video uses a racial slur while engaged in an argument.

The individual is not a current member of the LAPD and retired in May 2020 as a detective assigned to Operations Central Bureau Homicide. To ensure there is no current Department nexus to this incident, there has been an internal investigation started. What is seen in the video is not reflective of the thousands of hard working and dedicated men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office has announced they will be reviewing 370 cases handled by the retired LAPD detective. The Department has pledged full cooperation with the process.
