Salinas Police Release Names of Officers Who Killed Residents in 2014
by Monterey County Police News
Tuesday Sep 30th, 2014 3:16 PM
The Salinas Police Department sent a letter to various media outlets today releasing the names of the officers involved in killing four Latino Salinas residents in separate incidents this year. The department had delayed releasing the names due to what they called "threats," but now says those threats have subsided. In each shooting, a Sergeant with 10-years or more of service with the SPD was one of the shooters. SPD continues to claim investigations are still ongoing into these killings.
