Name of officer: N/A
Date and time: May 20, 2017
Location of interaction: Gardena
Citizen Name: Benny Reed
Description of incident: My 61 year old brother diagnosed with Dementia was arrested by Gardena PD May 20th and is currently being help in Twin Towers mental ward in downtown Los Angeles jail. He has no court date, release date, or sentence. The jail is holding my brother with no idea of why he is still being housed without a court date. They have no clue what court he is to appear in or who his public defender may be or when he can be released. Is this proper procedure to put mental health patients in jail and hold them without having any information? I would appreciate it if anyone can give his concerned family some sort of information so we can have him released to the veterans hospital.
