The personnel complaint investigation has been ongoing since March 18, 2013 and is nearly complete. A second personnel complaint was initiated on June 19, 2013, when the LAPD Legal Affairs Division notified Internal Affairs Division of a “Claim for Damages,” which was filed on behalf of Ms. Nguyen. The two complaints were ultimately consolidated into one complaint as is customary when the allegations involve the same incident.
The findings of this investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police and he will determine whether disciplinary action needs to be taken against the officers over the incident. Although specific details related to personnel investigations are protected under State Law, the Los Angeles Police Department will ensure that Ms. Nguyen is made aware of the outcome of the investigation related to this incident.
