NOTICE OF COMPLAINT January 12, 2022 ICMS #: 2022-0030 On January 11, 2022 the OPO received an online complaint. The complainant alleges: in missing unit per missing/runaway has been sarcastic towards me toward the situation numerous times. Officers called to my runaway calls have numerous times taken the situation as a joke..commenting as saying " what are you doing to your child why she runs away" saying " we don’t need to find her " it’s your responsibility hits your kid" comments like this. I had a missing unit receptionist or intake worker say things like " this is the reason why I did not have kids" comments. I also had a police officer and offer no help but to just try to take my daughter off the " missing" status and I said no help me look for her. I am as we speak waiting on officer to call me. This notice of complaint is a request for Internal Affairs to initiate an investigation to determine if the employee conduct is within compliance of APD policy, Civil Service Rules, and Municipal Civil Service Rules.
