NOTICE OF COMPLAINT March 11, 2022 ICMS #: 2022-0178 On March 10, 2022 the OPO received an online complaint. The complainant alleges: On I was serving as a commissioned security officer at where the shoplifting was taking place and 911 was called at approximately hours. Officer responded to the call and issued a ticket to the shoplifter and criminal trespass warning, then he gave me copies for both ticket and CTN , CTN . Later on when I was about to write my report to the store headquarters I realize that as follow: 1- The ticket showing that the shoplifter was arrested and no court date, when matter of fact the shoplifter was free to leave at that time. (It’s not an issue to me but brought my attention that the officer needs to focus on what he’s doing). 2- Officer was issued a criminal trespass warning to me not to the shoplifter. Officer didn’t take his job seriously which caused to put criminal trespass warning in my record which is extremely unacceptable and need to be removed from my report immediately and I would like to receive approval that shows that the CTN was removed from my record. The warning in my report will affect some applications I’m going through and I wish to be removed before they run my background check for those applications. 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.
