NOTICE OF COMPLAINT
April 15, 2022
ICMS #: 2022-0290
On April 15, 2022, the OPO received a phone complaint.
The complainant alleges: An officer in an unmarked vehicle turned on his lights so everyone
would get out of their way. Once the officer had finished getting through, they immediately turned
their lights off, which was an abuse of power. As a result, many of the drivers in traffic were
thrown off by this sudden occurrence and nearly rear-ended each other.
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.
