Northern California Police Union Treasurer Arrested for Embezzlement

Police unions seem to have produced a lot of corruption stories lately. The latest example comes from Northern California. On July 27, David Sittig-Wattson, now 34, former treasurer of the Rohnert Park Public Safety Officers Association, an independent union, was arrested for felony embezzlement in an unspecified sum from the association over a four-year period. He was released on $5,000 bail and is set to appear in court at a later date. Rohnert Park is a community of 50,000 located about 50 miles north of San Francisco. Sittig-Wattson had turned himself into police following an investigation by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office at the request of the district attorney.
