The Office of Professional Standards is responsible for recruiting and training new employees, developing policy and procedures and conducting internal affairs investigations.

It is the policy of the department to investigate all complaints of alleged misconduct of employees, regardless of their source, to equitably determine whether the allegations are founded or unfounded, or to identify policies, practices or training that may be in need of re-evaluation, clarification and / or correction and ensure the appropriate action is taken to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
