A full-page ad paid for by an anonymous entity and appearing in three newspapers in Beverly Hills claims that “Beverly Hills’ quality of life is being threatened.”
Without naming Chief Sandra Spagnoli, the ad says, “Trust and communication between employees and department leadership have deteriorated.”
Chief Spagnoli responded with a video message at 6 p.m. Thursday evening.

In addition, Mayor Julian Gold has responded to the allegations in these ads with the following statement:
“The latest attacks against our Police Chief and Department are inaccurate, mean-spirited and unfortunate. It is important to remember the Police Department was faced with significant challenges prior to Chief Spagnoli arriving in Beverly Hills. She was hired to make change, period. Just this week, the Council received a report indicating the good work which is being done reflected in a declining crime rate. The chief and her team have successfully implemented recommendations from the independent firm, Management Partners. This was her mandate.”
