Management Audit of the LAFD 2005

In 2005 City Controller Laura Chick issued a report that among other things found that new recruits and minority and female firefighters at the Los Angeles Fire Department found that the majority believe they work in a hostile environment where sexual harassment, racial discrimination, and hazing are rife. As a result of lawsuits and complaints, the Controller issued a report to the Mayor, City Council and the Fire Chief with her findings.
