Law enforcement controversy

In 2007, several Hollywood Police Department officers have been implicated in a wide-reaching corruption investigation by the FBImarker, and a few officers turned state's evidence in order to reduce their potential sentences. Several officers faced trial and one was convicted in August 2007.

In 2009, five Hollywood Police Department officers were accused of trying to cover up a crash involving one of their own officers by lying on police reports. The officer is clearly noted on video to "draw little Disney here.." the report and that "if I have to bend the rules to protect a cop I'm gonna." Whole incident audio was recorded by dashboard camera. Recorded video is full of vulgar language.
