The Chief

  • Author(s): Beale, Andrew Martin
  • et al.

Fresno's deputy chief of police is in prison. Wiretap recording played for the jury exposed a web of corruption, some of which appeared to involve other members of the police department. The chief of police, Jerry Dyer, swore under oath that he never had reason to distrust his second-in-command. This multimedia project looks at Dyer's history in the department, going back to his first days as chief when he was already embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal, and seeks to answer the question: how could Dyer not have known what his top deputy was up to?
