The Peace Officers Research Association of California has officially withdrawn its $50,000 pledge for information leading to the arrest of Christopher Dorner,  KNBC reported.

This is just the latest development in the tale of the shrinking Dorner pledge. Several contributors, including the city of Riverside, have already backed out. The Peace Officers Research Assn. of California, which represents 64,000 public safety officers, said earlier this week that it was putting its donation on hold.

Bratton, the former Los Angeles police chief who has also led the police forces in Boston and New York,  told the New York Times on Friday
