Oakland Officer Fired For Misconduct

The police department in Oakland has fired a veteran narcotics officer for an alleged false police report and untruthful court testimony. According to the Oakland Tribune, alleged misconduct occurred last year in a case involving several hundred dollars worth of cocaine. John Gutierrez plans to appeal his firing. A year ago the policeman for 22 years had been named the Oakland officer of the year.
