Documents: PHX officials decided to place kidnapping stats whistleblower under investigation

• ABC 15 Phoenix AZ
Top Phoenix city and police leaders met in an undisclosed meeting and decided to place a whistleblower under investigation, according to documents obtained by the ABC15 Investigators. Officials have repeatedly denied that they retaliated against Sgt. Phil Roberts for writing several memos about Phoenix’s inaccurate kidnapping statistics. However, the new information contradicts their claims. The documents include depositions, handwritten notes and internal emails. The records have been verified though multiple sources. “Phil finally wrote one too many memos, named too many people,” said Dave Kothe, a retired officer and union vice president. “(Phoenix officials) had enough, (they) we’re going to do something about it.”
