How does ACCPD handle complaints of misconduct?

ACCPD takes all complaints of police misconduct seriously.  Depending on the nature of the allegations, the investigation may be assigned to a unit-level supervisor or commander, or it may be assigned to the Office of Professional Standards.  If the allegations are criminal in nature, then the case will be referred to the appropriate authority for a criminal investigation as well.  The investigator may contact you for additional information about your complaint.  Once the investigation is complete, the information and evidence will be analyzed to determine whether or not any policy violations occurred.  You will receive notice concerning the final disposition of the case.  Any appropriate corrective actions will be implemented.  This process generally takes about 30-45 days for a standard complaint investigation.
