NOTICE OF COMPLAINT April 1, 2022 ICMS #: 2022-0232 On March 30, 2022, the OPO received a phone complaint. The complainant alleges: Officer /badge # arrested her on for no reason. When Officer took her to jail, he pulled her wig off and thought it was hilarious. Officer told her every time he sees her, he is going to harass her. She is on probation and does not want to go downtown anymore because she fears she will be arrested. Her judge advised her to make a complaint against Officer because what he is doing is not right. On around or at the same location, Officer watched her as she was talking to someone. She got hit by a car while riding a scooter and was speaking to other officers when Officer walked up and told her she was going to have to talk to him or nothing was going to get done. She let the other officer know she did not want to talk to him. The other officer told Officer it was not going to happen and asked him to move. Officer stated he was not going anywhere because he knew her. She responded that she did not know the officer. She does not feel safe and before it goes too far, she is calling OPO before she gets her lawyer involved. 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.
