VPD Detective Sandra Aldridge: Where There's Smoke, There's an Inferno


Does the City of Vancouver have specific attorneys on the payroll just to handle litigation resulting from violations of civil rights by Detective Sandra Aldridge?

VPD Officer Sandra Aldridge continues to compound liability for the City of Vancouver, Vancouver Police Department and the citizens of our community. Her misconduct remains UNCHECKED, while City leaders pour taxpayer dollars into full time legal defense to cover liability associated with the pattern and practice of violation of civil rights that Aldridge leaves in her path.  In addition to the 20+ internal affairs complaints filed against Aldridge with the Vancouver Police Department, complaints of misconduct under "Color of Law"  SPECIFICALLY NAMING DETECTIVE SANDRA ALDRIDGE have been brought forth in each of the civil and criminal cases listed below over the past four years:

List of alleged violations include:  False arrest, falsification of evidence, manufacturing of evidence, falsifying police reports, perjury, subornation of perjury, making sexual advances to an alleged DV victim, unlawful search and seizure, due process violations, false statements on search warrants, mishandling evidence, false statements regarding certifications, violations of state and federal Privacy Act, unlawful tampering with Criminal History Database (ACCESS) records, unlawful extradition and interstate fraud.
