No Comment From Glendale Police After Officers Take Leave

Five officers, one sergeant on paid leave

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police officials in Glendale on Tuesday refused comment on why five officers and a sergeant have been placed on paid leave.

KNX 1070’s Jon Baird reports the chief was quoted as saying that some officers make some very dumb mistakes.

A spokesman for the department would only say that there were four separate unrelated incidents and denied any conspiracy, adding the incidents — as yet undisclosed — were not heinous.

The official said it hasn’t even been proven yet that the actual incidents even happened.

He also noted that there have been no claims or lawsuits have been filed against the city.
