What We Do

Internal Investigations

Ifthe public doesn’t believe that its police department is capable or willing to police itself with integrity and efficiency, then that police organization will find itself under scrutiny for all of its actions.

When the general public becomes fearful or intimidated by members of any police organization, then that organization has failed to perform its basic function which is "to serve and protect"

A police department’s policy and practices concerning complaint reception, processing and investigation are the keys to ensuring the public’s expectations of that police department are met.
