LAPD Officer Allegedly Caught on Body Camera Fondling Corpse

The Los Angeles Police Department is testing the Bola Wrap 100 as an alternative to detaining individuals without using force

Two Los Angeles police officers responded to a report of a possible dead body inside a home and found a deceased woman.

Although the accused officer deactivated his body-worn camera, the device still managed to capture the events, as it's programmed to record for a two-minute period after being powered down.

The person did not know when the incident occurred or when it was discovered.

"The department is aware of the incident and an internal investigation has been launched", LAPD officer Jeff Lee said, adding that he can not comment further on pending personnel matters.

The Los Angeles Police Protective League represents 10,000 LAPD officers.

The Los Angeles Police Protective League released a statement on the case, saying: "If this allegation is true, then the behaviour exhibited by this officer is not only wrong but extremely disturbing and does not align with the values we, as police officers, hold dear". In 2015, the LAPD became one of the first large law enforcement agencies to widely adopt body cameras, rolling out about 7,000 cameras.

A source familiar with the investigation said the incident happened a few weeks ago but was found in a random check of bodycam footage.

During that time, the officer allegedly flipped off his bodycam and inappropriately touched the woman.

While his partner went back to the patrol auto, the accused officer allegedly turned off his body camera and fondled the woman's breasts, the Los Angeles Times reported, citing Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officials.

Aside from investigating the incident, the department is also looking into the officer's work history. It is not clear how long the officer fondled the corpse or what prompted him to turn the camera back on.

Lally, who worked as a supervisor for 25 years, said the investigation should not take long to complete.

Assistant Chief Robert Arcos called the recording "very disturbing", the Los Angeles Times reported.

The inspections will allow supervisors to determine whether some officers need additional training or counseling to prevent instances of biased policing, Moore told the Board of Police Commissioners.

Even prior to the agreement, police leaders could review recordings and discipline officers for misconduct discovered on video. Police supervisors could previously review footage after arrests, use-of-force incidents or complaints from the public. The department collects about 14,000 recordings a day and has accumulated recordings totaling more than 2.1 million hours.
