Course Description: This presentation takes an in-depth look at the causes, events and circumstances leading up to, surrounding, and beyond the "Rampart Scandal". This unique course will discuss law enforcement leadership issues, ethical decision-making and ethical behavior for today’s LE, and how the prior LAPD culture caused the scandal. LAPD retired Captain Richard Meraz was the Commanding Officer of the LAPD Rampart Division during the intense and tumultuous three years when the problems occurred. This course will discuss a candid, no holds barred, personal account of the leadership Issues which he continually faced during, and for years beyond that time. The Dialogue will also look into the LAPD culture which existed at the time, the incremental steps and specific case studies of arrests, shootings and incidents that led to corruption, the downfall and narcotics arrest of Rafael Perez, the aftermath, its toll and consequences in terms of careers, reputations and family life. Most importantly, a discussion on the Leadership Insights and lessons learned to impact, deter and deal with potential corruption.
