A retired judge has been named San Jose's new independent police auditor.

Ladoris Cordell worked in the Santa Clara County Superior Court for nearly 20 years before serving four years on the Palo Alto City Council.

The job of the independent auditor is to review all complaints against police officers to help make sure the investigation was complete, objective and fair.
