LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck has begun a series of internal audits and has held meetings to examine the disciplinary system after the violent conclusion to the manhunt for fired officer Christopher Dorner.

Beck has told Tuesday’s meeting of the Los Angeles Police Commission that the review into Dorner’s allegations of wrongful termination is under way and will include a review of the disciplinary system itself.

Dorner wrote in an 11,000-word manifesto that he would wage “warfare” against the department for his unfair firing.

Authorities say Dorner killed four people including two law enforcement officers and wounded three others.

Protesters at the commission meeting have demanded an independent review of Dorner’s claims.

The five members of the Police Commission are the Police Department’s civilian overseers.
