    For those who missed it, I also recommend The Herald-Tribune investigative series “Unfit for Duty, “how Florida police officers can stay on the job despite multiple complaints, crimes.”

    See http://cops.htcreative.com/

    It includes a searchable database “for [FL law enforcement] officers, complaints and disciplinary actions.”
