Anonymous complaints from Glendale residents no longer are enough to trigger investigations into allegations of misconduct by officers, according to the latest contract the city negotiated with its police unions.Persons who file complaints against officers must sign affidavits stating that they believe their allegations to be true.

Police say those found to be untruthful could face criminal charges in certain instances. Police officials still will investigate anonymous complaints against officers if the allegations involve possible crimes, or if they can independently corroborate them.

The change was specified in a two-year contractthat city leaders negotiated with Glendale Police Officers Coalition, which comprises the citys two police unions.
