San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne told U-T San Diego last weekend he wanted to hire an independent, outside auditor to review how the department handles officer sexual misconduct complaints.
That was news to San Diego Independent Auditor Eduardo Luna, the guy typically in charge of these sorts of things. He hadn’t heard of Lansdowne’s request until it hit the paper.
“As the city’s independent auditor, I welcome having a role in it if that’s what the City Council and the mayor desires,” Luna said.
