The City of Austin is committed to compliance with the American Disabilities Act. Reasonable modifications and equal access to communications will be provided upon request. NOTICE OF FORMAL COMPLAINT ICMS #: 2020-1824 January 8, 2021 Complaint: Complainant, , filed a complaint alleging: I was pulled over by Officer on . During the interaction Officer approached me speaking English, but I felt more comfortable speaking in Spanish. When I replied in Spanish the officer also responded in Spanish. Officer proceeded to ask questions about car insurance, and a form of ID. When Officer asked who the car belonged to I shifted to English and said "my car." After this, the officer’s entire demeanor changed. It was clear that he was entirely bothered that I chose to speak in Spanish first when according to the officer my English "seemed to be good enough." From there, tension could be felt by Officer during the remainder of the interaction. Officer let his personal emotions get in the way of being an unbiased peace officer. Officer could have shown more professionalism had he not made that remark that made it seem like speaking Spanish was unlawful. In addition, upon looking over my ticket, I noticed Officer put my gender as M where my passport clearly states F. The officer's reaction was inadequate being that he clearly understands and speaks Spanish himself. This notice of formal complaint is a request for Internal Affairs to initiate an investigation in order to determine if the employee conduct is within compliance of APD policy, Civil Service Rules, and Municipal Civil Service Rules.
