Detective Sandra Aldridge, Wrongful Convictions

Where There’s Smoke…

Vancouver Police Department’s Detective Sandra Aldridge may be the most corrupt officer in the State of Washington.  As the City of Vancouver and VPD’s Professional Standards Unit work feverishly to avoid liability by covering up her indiscretions, Aldridge is leaving a lasting imprint through the State’s courts and beyond.

List of alleged violations include: Tampering with a witness, witness intimidation to include false arrest, tampering with evidence, manufacturing of evidence, falsifying police reports, perjury, subornation of perjury, making sexual advances to alleged DV victims, unlawful search and seizure, due process violations, false statements on search warrants, false statements regarding certifications, violations of state and federal Privacy Act, unlawful tampering with Criminal History Database (ACCESS) records, unlawful extradition and interstate fraud.
