A grand jury report has been made public after an investigation into the Lakeland Police Department.
The opinions were determined in February, but released to the public months later.
The report addressed how the police department handled public records law, and whether or not they complied with it.
The report also called for the removal of Chief Lisa Womack.
"On behalf of the Lakeland Police Department, we object to the opinions that have been offered," Chief Womack said at a press conference Friday.
The City of Lakeland issued a 19-page response to the grand jury report, and the mayor addressed the findings at City Hall.
"Everyone has a right to their own opinion, but not their own facts. No matter how strongly or repeatedly those opinions are stated does not make them factually correct," Mayor Gow Fields said. "We deeply believe in doing the right thing as an organization. There were no laws found to be broken. This organization has been examined by more organizations probably in the history of Central Florida.
