The former head of the Los Angeles Police Department's internal affairs unit acknowledged in a sworn deposition that he had a three-year affair with a female sergeant under his supervision, raising new questions about how the watchdog unit operated.
The LAPD handbook notes that relationships between supervisors and subordinates are problematic. It says that if such a liaison develops, "it is the duty of the involved employees to immediately notify their commanding officer."
