Statement from CVPD following $2.2 million judgement awarded ICE Agent in Federal civil case against the City of Chula Vista and 5 CVPD officers.
The Chula Vista Police Department deeply respects the judicial process. However, we are disappointed with the jury's finding. We believe our officers and supervisors acted appropriately and within department policy under suspicious and dangerous circumstances. The city is strongly considering an appeal. Two of the five officers named in the lawsuit are retired. The other 3 are still working for the city. Based on continuing litigation, no further comments will be made.
