About Tom Ryff – TempePoliceCloset

Tom Ryff and TempePoliceCloset

UPDATED December 7 , 2019 – City of Tempe cowers to Ryff, offers $150,000 to settle lawsuit

A group of Tempe, Arizona police officers grew sick and tired of Chief Tom Ryff, his nefarious deeds, and disgraceful behavior. TempePoliceCloset was launched sometime in 2007-08. It includes many accounts directly from Tempe cops spilling the beans about Ryff and other criminal Tempe cops who joined in the thuggery.

Operation-Nation covered many of Ryff’s exploits and TempePoliceCloset helped us discover a lot about the department. The original website has since been removed from the web. But we preserved it in its entirety and are re-publishing it here.

RELATED: Post-Retirement Tom Ryff sues City of Tempe for $1 million (July 25, 2017).

The current chief made “disparaging remarks” about him in violation of a non-paragement agreement. In other words, the current Tempe Police don’t kiss his ass well enough. The City of Tempe, citing the coverage of Operation-Nation, essentially said in their response to the lawsuit that there’s no amount of disparaging remarks that can be worse than the truth about Ryff. As of today (September 1, 2019), the case is currently in settlement talks, with a pre-trial conference set for March of 2020.
