As the voice for over 2600 Phoenix Police Officers and Detectives, it’s important for PLEA to provide the best service to the citizens we protect and maintain the reputation earned by rank-and-file officers.
In contrast to police management ignoring relevant information to the Baseline Killer case, PLEA took the initiative by assisting the County Attorney working this crucial investigation.
PLEA provided the same pertinent information to prosecutors for the court to review. It has recently come to PLEA’s attention that information related to the Baseline Killer case has been presented in a public website forum.
Whatever police management flaws existed in this case in no way justify posting sensitive information on the web. PLEA is alarmed and opposed to the release of this type of information.
