Edelberg & Espina to Announce Lawsuit Against LAPD by Officer Who Exposed Alleged Violations by Former Chief Williams.
October 4, 2002
According to the law firm of Edelberg & Espina, when Bernard Parks became Chief of Police of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in 1997, the career of Lieutenant Kathleen Ann Sheehan -- now a 22 year veteran serving as a Watch Commander in the North Hollywood Division -- soon changed rapidly for the worse. Lt. Sheehan stood up for principles and ethics rather than be involved in some of the corruption and graft which was found on the upper levels of the LAPD administration.
Decrying a "police culture" within the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) that overlooks criminal acts and corruption by those in favor while punishing those who tell the truth, Lieutenant Kathleen Ann Sheehan, a 22-year veteran LAPD officer, today filed a lawsuit against the department and others for alleged negative treatment she has received in the wake of her reporting alleged violations by former Chief Willie Williams.
