NOTICE OF COMPLAINT April 1, 2022 ICMS #: 2022-0224 On March 28, 2022, the OPO received a phone complaint. The complainant alleges: The complainant’s nephew passed away at a friend’s house on The responding detective, , told her that she knew her nephew because he was a suspect in a couple of cases she is investigating. She felt that was not appropriate to say at that time. The investigation is not going to be accurate because the detective is already biased and does not care. When she asked Detective about her nephew’s body being moved, Detective responded it was obvious there was no foul play and the body was moved to follow instructions from EMS so they could perform CPR, but previous information does not coincide with that. When she inquired about her nephew’s money and tennis shoes, Detective responded that everything was at the morgue and that her nephew’s shirt was cut up but the nice belt he had on was still intact. She has spoken to Detective on several occasions and the detective has always responded by saying things that are very inappropriate. There has been no compassion for the family. 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.
