The lack of accountability extends to every level, from small infractions to large. In the department's Internal Affairs files, the DOJ found 6,571 allegations of police officers failing to appear in court to testify in the cases they made. In 1,698 of these cases, there was no disposition, although the investigation had supposedly concluded. The department "administratively closed" another 1,142 of these cases, meaning that in 43 percent of the complaints the department took no action against its officers skipping court. "Without the arresting or witnessing officer's testimony," the report notes, "many of these cases lack adequate evidence to proceed, and are dismissed."
