Whistleblowers Silenced

Victorville, CA

Victorville motorcycle traffic officers who blew the whistle on an alleged “illegal traffic-ticket quota” in addition to claims they were pressed to minimize traffic violations by elected officials, city officials and off-duty deputies, lost their case in civil court last week when jurors reached a verdict against their claim and in favor of the County of San Bernardino. 

Plaintiffs in the case included Deputies Brian Moler and Jeff Wetmore and retired Victorville Sargent Tim Jordan. The complaint claimed that Moler and Wetmore were removed from a motorcycle traffic-enforcement assignment because they spoke out on these issues; while Jordan, the motorcycle unit supervisor, claimed he was compelled to retire because of a hostile work environment.
