Professional Standards Division
The Professional Standards Division (commonly known as Internal Affairs), is responsible for assisting the Senior Management Team in ensuring compliance with state laws and departmental standards as well as adherence to departmental values.
These responsibilities involve the investigation of complaints of misconduct, officer-involved shootings, civil claims, and conducting organizational audits of all types.
The Professional Standards Division helps generate and maintain the trust of the community. This trust is critical to the success of policing efforts and represents the most valuable resource, besides its people, that a police department has to fight crime and reduce fear in the community.
