Responsibilities & Services
The Professional Standards Unit (PSU) consists of one Sergeant, five Investigators, four Police Background Investigators, and two Senior Administrative Assistants. The unit is responsible for the administration of the internal affairs investigative process and screening applicants for employment positions within the department. Additionally, the unit monitors the process by which uses of force and pursuits are reviewed, monitors traffic stop data gathered pursuant to statutes banning racial profiling, and other assignments as directed by the Office of the Chief of Police.
The purpose of PSU is to conduct thorough and objective administrative investigations, to select quality applicants for employment with the Department, protect the public from employee misconduct, protect employees from false allegations of misconduct, and to identify faulty policies and procedures that might otherwise go undetected.
