Reporting Police Corruption In The United States

The following is a copy of a post from my other blog, Victims Of Organized Crime In Central Texas, found at I'm posting it here as well because it contains new information on Diop Kamau and the Police Complaint Center, and also because it has important information victims of corrupt law enforcement desperately need to see.

By now, I believe the vast majority of Americans have come to realize that our nation is currently awash with crime. Whether it's organized, petty, gang-related, serial, white-collar, drug-related, etc., the fact remains that it's all rampant and largely unchecked. This simply doesn't happen when law enforcement is doing its job properly.

The problem of law enforcement corruption is not one of lack of knowledge; there are plenty of us citizens willing to come forward and report what we know in an effort to get needed relief from being victimized and make our homes, communities, and country safer. Instead, the problem is one of finding safe and reliable ways to give our information to law enforcement with the understanding that it will be treated seriously, used properly and effectively, and not be turned against us or others.

If you have information on corrupt American law enforcement officers, whether it's at the local, state, of federal level, there is an important new post you must see:

This post explains the current situation and problems with reporting corruption very well. It also gives step-by-step instructions complete with links to the proper ways to report your information that give victims the best chances for obtaining relief, given the current sorry state of U.S. law enforcement.

The article referenced above does an excellent job of evaluating the options for victims of law enforcement corruption who are desperately seeking help and relief. I have only a few minor additions to make that are based on my own personal experiences.

First and foremost, I need to underscore the conclusions reached in the afore-referenced piece. Do not under any circumstances turn to Diop Kamau and/or the Police Complaint Center for help! If you'd like confirmation of the fact that this is a scam, go to, where you will find my entire criminal fraud and conspiracy case posted for your examination. My documents are posted in chronologic order starting at the beginning of the blog, and I recommend looking at them in this order for maximum shock value and understanding of how Kamau operates. At the end of the blog, I've included a number of sample comments and complaints from other victims as well.

If you're able to make it through all or most of my documents, you'll get a very clear sense of how my complaints and information were actively used against me and my children as I was being defrauded and stalked. You will also be able to see firsthand how I was increasingly victimized by law enforcement at all levels. Also notice that even after I posted proof of illegal surveillance by law enforcement (see "Illegal Surveillance, Part 4", posted at my vocct blog on 11/14/09) and a death threat received from an officer (see "Other Police Threats", posted at my vocct blog on 10/3/09), the U.S. DOJ still refused to do anything.

As I've noted previously in this blog, I have information on dozens of other people who've been victimized by Diop Kamau and the Police Complaint Center. These people turned to him in desperation for help in dealing with police corruption because they were unable to receive assistance elsewhere. Instead, they wound up being victimized twice: first by crooked law enforcement and then by Kamau and his associates. Many found Kamau through links from law enforcement websites, as I did, or through referrals from well-known agencies. For example, one woman was sent to the Police Complaint Center by the NAACP after her son was shot to death by a police officer; she was then defrauded out of several thousand dollars by Diop Kamau, who promised her legal assistance she never received.

I correspond regularly with many of Kamau's other victims, particularly the ones who are ongoing victims of serious cyber harassment, defamation, identity theft, and stalking as I am. In an effort to try and find out how many other victims there might be, one victim filed a freedom of information request with the FTC asking for copies of all complaints they had on file against the Police Complaint Center. He received over 30 pages of these, yet they did not contain complaints from many of the other victims we know about. One victim received an email from the Better Business Bureau of Washington, D.C. stating that Kamau had informed them he was shutting down the Police Complaint Center for good after he lost his investigator's license and received an "F" rating. However, his websites remain up and continue advertising for clients, and my fellow victims and I continue being contacted by new victims looking for help. Now one victim has learned that the DOJ may actually be providing Kamau with funding and is in the process of filing complaints and freedom of information requests in an effort to find out if this is in fact the case.

While I completely agree with the author of the above-referenced post in theory that it's important to complain to the DOJ in writing as the proper first step to take regarding reporting law enforcement corruption, I'm also painfully aware that as a practical matter, doing this first may not be wise for everyone. At the very least, it may be a waste of time and money, as I noted in my comment left at the end of the piece and as is shown by the response I received from the DOJ that's posted on my vocct blog under "DOJ Civil Rights Division" (6/28/10). In the worst cases, the information you provide to the DOJ may potentially used against you, as has happened to my children and me, because law enforcement corruption now goes so high. Each person will have to weigh their own situation carefully before deciding how to proceed.

In any case, I can recommend the British reporting link without hesitation. While it's a sad state of affairs indeed that we Americans are being forced to turn to other countries for the help our civil rights and tax dollars supposedly entitle us to at home, it's also encouraging to know there are places to turn where our information is treated with the care and consideration it deserves. It's a real blessing to realize there are others out there who are still serious about stopping crime and making our world a better and safer place.

Webpost 7

Item posted by unknown person with apparent law enforcement experience who agrees Diop Kamau exhibits signs common to cons and is committing cyberharassment and libel.

It's important to note that when this webpost comes up in search engines, only the first part containing the totally false statements about me and other victims of Diop Kamau comes up.

Kamau 250

Recent email I received. I did not click on the link provided, but instead went to this website on my own. Despite what this email says, I did not see any new/additional content on my complaint, so I went back and printed out the source and header information from the email.

Kamau Victim 1

Letter shared with me by another victim of Diop Kamau and the PCC that was received from Ricardo West (who was not connected with my own case as far as I know).

This letter, written on PCC letterhead, appears to be a generic one sent to multiple victims. Note that the date on the computer file causes the date on the letter to change to the current date each time the file is opened (so the date printed is NOT the date it is sent but rather the most recent date it was viewed).

I'm posting it because I believe other victims will recognize it, because it contains important payment information and an investigator that are different from what I've posted from my case, and also because of the comment printed at the bottom of the page.

Kamau 249

Copy of a portion of the complaint I filed with the Florida OAG in 2007.
I obtained this from another victim of Kamau who filed an open records request and shared this with me. As far as I know, the FL OAG never did anything about this.

Webpost 5

Webposting by unknown person, possibly from Kansas City, concerning Greg Slate and the Police Complaint Center. Note that this was posted on 1/9/2008.

I do have some important additional information regarding Greg Slate and the PCC. Another person victimized by Slate and Kamau was kind enough to share copies of correspondence they received from Mike Matthews with the Florida agency that licenses private investigators there. The following excerpts contain public information that can be verified by calling 850-245-5459:

"Mr. Kamau's agency was charged with employing an unlicensed private investigator, Greg Slate, and using a name not approved by the state, The Police Complaint Center. Slate was terminated from this agency sometime back in Dec. of 2007 and his exact whereabouts are not known at this time. We may take action against him once we locate him."

"...Diop Kamau and his agency licensed in Florida as The Center One were charged with employing an unlicensed private investigator (Greg Slate) and conducting or advertising business [sic] under a fictitious name (Police Complaint Center) without prior approval of the Department and the filing of a certificate under Section 865.09 Florida Statutes. A compliance letter was issued and the charges sustained."
