NOTICE OF FORMAL COMPLAINT ICMS #: 2020-0065 February 26, 2020 Complaint: , complainant, alleges that Austin Police Department officers may have violated policy while responding to a traffic accident in which her daughter was involved. The complaint states as follows: “My daughter was in an accident in my vehicle. Officer filed an accident report - but fails to document where vehicle 2 - ended up. Being that their vehicle and all debris from their vehicle was COMPLETELY on the West Bound lane of the intersection - it makes "Fault" a disputed fact. Speed should be considered - and how far she continued down the opposite side of the road after impact is an extremely important detail in determining that. I even asked the officers at the scene if she had been ticketed for speed, because if not the impact would have stayed in the intersection, but they said that was he said she said and that all of the relevant information was included in the report. However the report fails to include those detail, making it appear as though the vehicles collided on the Eastbound side of the intersection and stayed there. I took pictures of the intersection, the debris, and the end location of her vehicle for the insurance. But your police report carries more weight All debris and cleanup from the Kia was on the Westbound lanes and the KIA was towed from the Westbound lanes of the other side of the street. By failing to include this information in the report - he is unfairly biasing the fault determination because it appears as though they simply impacted mid-turn and the KIA did not go any further. In addition, while 3 officers battered my daughter with questions on scene, and one of them told her "he will fucking bring it back when he's done" in regards to - "can I have my id back". I find this language to be extremely unacceptable. And while my daughter might be partially at fault, the different way they treated her compared to the person in the other vehicle is unacceptable. I want the police report amended to include where the vehicles ended up after the crash, what direction they are facing etc. I will follow up through all available avenues of accountability. If it is necessary I will file to get the dashcam video of the incident as I suspect it will clear up any questions regarding vehicle locations.” 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.
