A full scale investigation is now underway looking into allegations that two LA traffic officers participated in making an internet porn film. The officers were both on duty - and in uniform.
There are "no limits" to the investigation involving two traffic officers who allegedly appeared in a pornographic movie while on duty, Councilman Bill Rosendahl said Monday.
Rosendahl said the investigation should determine what the officers' superiors knew and when they knew it.
"The entire chain of command is in the discussion at this point," Rosendahl told NBC4 LA. "Who knew what when, and why wasn't it shared? They're all part of the investigation."
The video shows the interactions of a porn actress with men in a range of work environments, including what appear to be two Los Angeles Department of Transportation employees.
Investigations by three city agencies, including the LAPD, City Attorney and LADOT Personnel Department are already underway, according to a statement released on Sunday by Amir Sedadi, LADOT’s interim general manager.
It was Rosendahl’s prompting that led LADOT to expand the investigation beyond an internal matter to draw on the expertise of other city agencies, the councilman said.
Rosendahl said he expects those agencies to dig into the matter, no holds barred.
"I want a full-scale investigation," Rosendahl told NBC4 LA. "I want LAPD, the City Attorney, I want (LADOT) personnel, to do a full-scale investigation."
Rosendahl, who heads the city’s Transportation Committee, said he hasn't ruled out the possibility that the case could become a criminal investigation.
"There are no limits to where this will go at this point," Rosendahl said.
The investigation was prompted by the NBC4 LA report last week.
Last week, Sedadi called the alleged misconduct "absolutely disgusting."
