Local officers arriving to search for Rivera failed to activate their dash-board cameras to record the scene, failed to immediately determine if any sexual predators lived or worked nearby, and didn’t report her case to a national registry until almost a day after she went missing, the report said.

The report said Lance, who didn’t respond to requests for comment, didn’t arrive at the apartment complex until around 10:15 a.m. the next morning — about 17 hours after the child was last seen. When he did arrive, it said he was talking to several other officers about the “Georgia game” and eventually turned the TV to a football game.

“Personnel present at the scene frequently characterized the chief’s level of concern as ‘laid back,’” the report said.

Wood, the city manager, said the review should answer questions that were raised about the policies and procedures of the department, which has 48 sworn officers.

“Although sadly the family must still deal with the heartache and loss of this young child, from a legal perspective the matter has now been fully concluded,” he said in a statement.
