LBPD Overtime Fraud

Mike Ruehle

The recent ruling on the Louisville Metro Police overtime fraud case bears striking similarities to the on-going Long Beach overtime fraud investigation [Oct. 11 issue]. A Louisville whistle blower reported overtime fraud of three officers to the Louisville Metro Police Chief, who in turn demoted the whistle blower for squealing out his fellow officers.

The whistle blower filed a retaliation lawsuit which lead to a federal investigation and conviction of three officers for wire fraud, which carries up to 20 years in prison. The officers also have to pay back the fraudulent overtime collected. Looking forward to seeing Long Beach Police Department and its crooked chief being held similarly accountable.
