Internal Affairs/Professional Standards Mission
The mission of the Internal Affairs section of the police department is to investigate complaints pertaining to the conduct of any of our sworn officers. These complaints can be initially filed and discussed with the officer's duty supervisor, the commanding officer and/or the patrol commander. If the matter is not adequately resolved at this level then the case is automatically referred to Internal Affairs. Keep in mind that serious violations of conduct (including criminal conduct) will be investigated to the fullest extent. Professional standards involves the development and review of police policy and practices and the continual evaluation of the department to meet accepted police standards.
