NOTICE OF COMPLAINT
March 4, 2022
ICMS #: 2022-0140
On March 2, 2022 the OPO received an online complaint.
The complainant alleges: I was on
just past the start of the highway at
. One of your
officers in a gray Explorer (plate ended in
) tailgated me for approximately 2 miles. He was
close enough that I could not see his hood in my rear view mirror. As I started to move over after
safely passing, he accelerated and came way to close to my back left side. I recognize he was trying
to catch up to the other vehicle, but there is no excuse for operating his vehicle in an unsafe manner.
If he needed to get by, he should have turned on his lights.
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.
