Professional Standards

The Professional Standards Unit has as its major function the receiving, processing, and investigation of complaints made against members of the Department. To ensure the public’s trust and maintain the Department’s integrity, this unit conducts immediate and objective investigations of all complaints. It is essential that all allegations of police misconduct are thoroughly and objectively investigated to assure the public that official misconduct will not be tolerated and, at the same time, provide a vehicle whereby officers unjustly accused can be vindicated.
