LAPD officers in gang units must disclose their financial assets, along with accounts, real estate and stocks jointly held with a spouse or business partner. Under the consent decree, the financial disclosure rule was intended to prevent bribery. Problems with attrition, however, have some reconsidering the rule. Does financial disclosure reduce police corruption? Or, is the department's ability to combat gangs compromised?
