Los Angeles, January 15, 2008 – In response to today’s 13-0 City Council vote to reopen a discussion on the financial disclosure rules recently approved by the Police Commission, Protective League President Tim Sands has issued the following statement:

“We are gratified that common sense has at last taken hold. We agree with Jack Weiss who said, ‘If this policy won't do much of anything to root out corruption, it's not a very good way to implement the consent decree.’ We look forward to working with all of the members of the City Council and the Police Commission to come up with a practical response to the consent decree requirement that will also work as an effective tool to combat and prevent corruption.”
