NOTICE OF COMPLAINT April 8, 2022 ICMS #: 2022-0251 On April 6, 2022, the OPO received a phone complaint. The complainant alleges: She called APD regarding an incident with her child and her younger brother. She was showing the officers the video she had but they were more concerned about a previous warrant for her arrest. She ended up going to the hospital because Officer and another officer came into her home and slammed her to the floor, breaking the tv in her bedroom. She was taken to jail for 5 -6 months for the violation of her parole on the previous warrant. When she asked officers for a copy of the police report she was given a blank police report. The way the officers treated her was wrong and resulted in her baby being born a week early and the child still has ongoing medical issues. 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.
