According to reports on KSAT 12, a recently retired member of the San Antonio Police Department has accused SAPD executives of improperly influencing Internal Affairs investigations into acts of misconduct and/or criminal conduct by officers of the SAPD.
According to retired Internal Affairs Sergeant Jim Jones, the Police Chief ordered Jones to curtail his investigation into sexual activity allegedly engaged in by a police captain with a subordinate, on city property while on-duty.
Jones asserts that members of the Chief’s staff, ordered him to suspend his investigation into the alleged behavior in order to prevent negative scrutiny of the San Antonio Police Department. Furthermore, KSAT received notice from San Antonio’s City Attorney Andy Segovia threatening legal action against the former Investigator for revealing this information.
If proven, these actions could constitute Tampering with a Witness, a violation of state law, or a violation of the Federal Whistleblowers Protection Act.
If you are aware of details that could shed light on this case or similar cases involving law enforcement, you could be eligible for a $2,500 cash reward.
