More news coming out of the Calexico Police Department. This time background checks that may be fraudulent.
Calexico Police Chief Mike Bostic revealed the new discovery last week at the town hall meeting.
“I found what appears to be some either fraudulent or ignored issues in the background investigations and I’m not sure how many yet. We’re going to have to look at all of them,” Chief Mike Bostic said.
Chief Bostic says he was pretty surprised.
He’s not sure what the next step should be.
“I’m not sure legally what can or can do with it at this point, but ultimately somebody chose to ignore the background guidelines when they hired some people for the department,” Chief Bostic said.
As for the previous chiefs he says if they’re responsible there’s not much that can be done unless if it’s something criminal.
“It would be on the people involved especially in the decision making process because fraud is fraud. False and misleading statements and it doesn’t matter your rank,” Chief Bostic said.
The count of the investigations is up to 29.
