Not many individuals find themselves overjoyed knowing they have been assigned to internal affairs or overseeing an IA Unit. However, the integrity of our organizations requires a process for investigating allegations of misconduct against its employees. IA is a fact-finding entity and its purpose is three-fold: 


Protection of the Public 

Protection of the Department 

Protection of the Employee   

While some larger agencies have units dedicated to this task, many smaller agencies do not. Some do not even have policies or procedures as to how an investigation should be committed and those investigating allegations may not be aware of the rights the accused officer may have before and during an investigation. This course reviews those rights, provides guidelines as to how to properly conduct an investigation and addresses issues that can enhance an agency's professionalism or create total distrust.    

Who should attend: This course is designed for senor executives and middle management.
