NOTICE OF FORMAL COMPLAINT ICMS #: 2020-0220 April 6, 2020 Complaint: Mr. , complainant, submitted the following online complaint to the Office of Police Oversight: “I was on a humanitarian mission to find a homeless person who has a serious medical condition and needs to be hospitalized. I was making enquiries at homeless camps near and wearing my Sunshine Homeless Naviation Center badge, when I was approached by Officer who spoke to me in an extremely belligerent tone, asking what was I doing there, and then, before I could answer him, asked why I had come out of a tent. I had never entered the camp. He then yelled at a man who was inside the tent to come out, and when he did started questioning him very belligerently, asking lots of questions for which the answer should have been "None of your business". After that man left, I explained to Officer , that his tone of voice sounded extremely aggressive, and was not warranted as he had seen no evidence of any crime. He replied that the homeless camp was a known area of high drug activity, and why would I have been there if I wasn't involved. He also said that he had been to my house on drug related calls, which is absolutely false. I do not allow drugs in my home, just last week we threw out a woman ( ) because she had drugs. The calls to my house have been mainly related to people trespassing who became belligerent when asked to leave. Officer spoke in a very rude manner to both me and to one of the residents. If he "knows" that there is drug dealing going on there (as there may be) he should get a warrant and search the place. If he has no evidence of drug activity he should not be acting this way towards people who he has not seen commit any crime.” 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.
