Supporting a culture of widespread corruption,that's what some Lafayette Police Department Officers say is going on within the police department and other parts of government.
It was also one of the main topics of discussion at this mornings Fire & Police Service Board Meeting.
A group of disgruntled employees filed a formal petition against Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft and other top Lafayette government officials.
The petition claims this widespread corruption has led to physical threats, racial discrimination and preferential treatment.
Police Chief Craft says the petition is baseless and the employees who filed it are attempting to undermine the confidence the people of Lafayette have in the department.
