The meeting comes after two city commissioners urged Womack to talk with Hill after he hand-delivered a scathing letter to her about the department on June 25.
The report detailed dozens of consensual and multiple forced sexual encounters involving more than 20 LPD officers and city employees. The report was based on investigations by the State Attorney's Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
