COMMENDATIONS

Compliments and commendations, whether verbal or written, are one of the best ways to let our employees know that you appreciate them. The administration encourages people to detail the actions performed by the officer(s) that you thought were exceptional. If you do not know the officer's name please provide as much information, such as the officer's badge number, the incident date, location, time, car number, etc. Although officers do not expect to be thanked for everything they do, recognition for exceptional service is always appreciated. This kind of feedback lets us know we are doing a good job.

Compliments and commendations may be made in writing (including letters or email), by telephone, or in person to:

Interim Chief Shawn Sequeira

INVESTIGATION PROCEDURE

Once your complaint has been received, it will be thoroughly investigated by the investigator designated by the Chief of Police. The investigation will usually include a review of all applicable reports, policies and procedures, examination of any evidence, and interviews with all parties and witnesses involved. A simple inquiry may take only a few days to complete, while a complex complaint may take two to three months to investigate and review.

The Chief of Police ultimately reviews every complaint. If the Chief of Police determines that an employee violated any departmental policy or procedure, appropriate corrective action will be taken.

If unsatisfied with the results of an internal investigation, the complainant may contact the Office of the Chief of Police.
