Fullerton's acting police chief and the City Council have apologized to a family after the department's narcotics officers mistakenly raided the wrong home after entering through the incorrect back gate, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Capt. Kevin Hamilton, who is temporarily overseeing the embattled department, told the City Council late Tuesday about an internal affairs investigation into the incident last Oct. 20 that resulted in the Nordells' home mistakenly being entered, and said it was a rare error.
The apology came after Robyn Nordell, who lived in the wrong raided home and teaches government, requested a public apology from the chief after discovering that the officers involved did not initially report the incident to the department's brass.
