The Best of the 90's To Now - Salt Lake City

More WVC Police Officers Placed on Paid Leave

Posted April 18th, 2013 @ 11:36am by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

A total of nine officers are now on paid leave, while an investigation continues to be conducted into the former West Valley City Police Narcotics Unit.

That includes two supervisors and seven detectives -- the entire, former department.

The federal probe was prompted, initially, by the fatal shooting of Danielle Willard, 21, last November.

Alleged problems with the police unit have also prompted prosecutors to throw out nearly 90 criminal cases.
