If there is an allegation of misconduct, it is essential that such allegations are thoroughly and objectively investigated. This is necessary to assure the public that such actions will not be tolerated and, at the same time, provide a process whereby employees who are unjustly accused can be vindicated. The responsibility and authority for these investigations is within the Internal Affairs (IA) Office.
Statistical data on all complaints is compiled and can be obtained through the Internal Affairs Office.
