Three Calif. Cops Accuse Chief of Unfair Treatment

December 20, 2011  | 

A female Arroyo Grande (Calif.) Police officer has filed the first of three expected lawsuits against the city and police chief, claiming sexual discrimination and harassment.

Officer Kimberly Martin's lawsuit claims she and two other female officers were harassed by Officer Barry Bridge. The women also claim Chief Steve Annibali promoted male officers ahead of equally qualified females and gave preferential treatment to male officers at range training and for uniform inspections, reports Cal Coast News.

Mayor Tony Ferraru should not have commented on the situation. It seems as if he is taking sides. It is a matter for the Internal Affairs Dept. to investigate. What is he trying to hide. If this officers made a comment or comments which the female officers found offensive then that's their call. I have heard male officers say things in the presence of female officers and civilian personnel and I politely correct them right there on the spot and they apologize for their behavior. So until they finish with the investigation, the Mayor should keep his comments to himself.
