NOTICE OF COMPLAINT
March 11, 2022
ICMS #: 2022-0164
On March 8, 2022 the OPO received a phone complaint.
The complainant alleges: They waited for 2.5 hours for police to arrive after his wife was in a car
accident in which her car was damaged and the other party was at fault. Officer
arrived and said he is a supervisor. The officer said it’s ok for the guy (who hit the complainant’s
wife’s car) to drive with a license that expired in
and no insurance. Now the complainant is
stuck with a damaged vehicle, doesn't know what to do, and is very upset that the officer
encouraged the man to drive with no license or insurance.
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.
