Independent investigations from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, the L.A. County District Attorney's Office and the U.S. Department of Justice, cleared the City's police department and officers of any wrongdoing.

In addition to a cash payment, the settlement calls for the El Monte Police Department to reemphasize its policies and procedures Policies and Procedures are a set of documents that describe an organization's policies for operation and the procedures necessary to fulfill the policies.
