More than a dozen Los Angeles police officers are being investigated on suspicion of possibly falsifying information they gathered during stops and portraying people as gang members or associates.

Some of the officers have been removed from active duty and in at least one case body camera and car recordings did not match the accounts in the field interview cards.  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-01-06/dozens-of-lapd-officers-accused-of-portrayed-innocent-people-as-gang-members-falsifying-records 

Chief Michel Moore reached out to some civic leaders in South L.A. to explain the investigation.

Our investigation, published in January, showed that Metro officers stopped African American drivers at a rate more than five times their share of the city’s population.
