Police clear 2 officers of lying about arrests

Police clear 2 officers of lying about arrests, Seattle Times, April 10, 2007.

An investigation into nearly 30 recent arrests made by two Seattle Police officers who had been accused of lying in written reports has turned up no evidence of wrongdoing, Chief Gil Kerlikowske said Monday.
The officers' one error was failing to report that they had briefly detained and handcuffed another suspect; Chief Kerlikowske says that they might be reprimanded or have some other administrative punishment for that.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the King County Defender Association's Racial Disparity Project have called for an outside investigation into allegations of misconduct by Neubert and Tietjen [the two officers].
