NOTICE OF COMPLAINT January 28, 2022 ICMS #: 2022-0064 On January 26, 2022 the OPO received a phone complaint. The complainant alleges: APD responded to a call, accused her, and was kind of hostile. The officer was trying to confuse her with the time frame when she was trying to give him her report. The officer told her that her friend was not credible. When she invited the officer in, and she went to her room he started stepping around trying to look in her room. All of that was not necessary and she does not feel like she should have been treated that way. The way the officer came at her had her overheated and upset and she felt very discriminated against. The officer only gave her the badge numbers , but no crash report or anything else. APD did not come to help her out, but just to accuse her, and asked her to tell him how the crash happened. She was told by the officer that her ID was in the car, and she was assuming it was somewhere else, so she was calling around to find it. The officer did not give her any information, so she was stuck at a standstill for days wondering where her information was and what she was at loss for. 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.
