NOTICE OF COMPLAINT
April 22, 2022
ICMS #: 2022-0293
On April 18, 2022, the OPO received a phone complaint.
The complainant alleges: The complainant works for
and called APD/911 because
there was a gentleman that needed to be escorted from the store. APD did not respond until 35-45
minutes later. When she tried to explain what happened the officer responded with smart remarks.
When she responded the same way, he did not like it. The two officers who responded did not
listen to her and just walked away. There is not enough being done to make officers realize they
need to talk to the public with respect. APD does not come when called and when they do come,
they don’t do the job they need to do to make the public feel safe. She was told by APD that the
next time she calls she could be in trouble. It is not right for APD to act that way. Very few officers
are righteous and care. The only reason they are disrespectful is because they hold a gun or taser.
She is tired of APD talking to people any kind of way and making threats to the public. Since
defunding, APD has gotten worst.
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.
