Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer James Diamond was arrested yesterday on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography. Diamond was arrested by the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) outside a business not far from his Long Beach home. Search warrants were subsequently served on his place of employment in Los Angeles and his home in Long Beach. The LBPD has not disclosed the fruits of the searches. They simply claim that they identified Diamond while investigating child sexual abuse material. Diamond is charged with two felony counts of possession of child pornography and two felony counts of distribution of obscene matter depicting a minor.
James Diamond is a 25 year veteran of the LAPD. He was last assigned to the personnel division. The LAPD has suspended Diamond's police powers and have launched their own internal investigation.
We could not find a picture of Diamond online anywhere, but we did find public records for a 52 year old Long Beach resident named James D. Diamond. He is a registered Republican. His last known address is 325 Olive Ave. Apt 12A. We normally censor home addresses of cops, but we do make exceptions in extreme cases such as sex crimes against children. We are making his address available so that people in the area know to keep their kids away from that place and to talk to their kids if they have been there. Please do not use this material for any unlawful purpose.
We found James D. Diamond's information on the LA county jail website. We are uploading that as a PDF with this article. It includes the following information:
