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 #: 2020-0131 February 26, 2020 Complaint: The Office of Police Oversight (OPO) is the complainant. The Office of Police Oversight received an online complaint alleging that Austin Police Department (APD) officers may have violated APD policy when they responded to home for a call for service regarding a road range incident in which she was involved. The complaint states, in part, as follows: “…when these two officers arrived at my home instead of taking my report they insulted me repeatedly. My entire exchange with the officers were them talking down to me, making snarky comments about how I should have reported what happened sooner and dismissed the fact that I had evidence without taking the time acknowledge it or even look at it…As soon as I left, I immediately said out loud this is EXACTLY why people hate the police. These officers were sent to my home to record evidence and take a police report from me. Instead they refused to take the report based on their own racism. They wrote me off as a black woman being hysterical and just wrong as if my attorney's legal counsel and the judge who ruled in my case were wrong or as if he knew better than they did.” 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.
