Internal Affairs Division

The Internal Affairs Division is responsible for investigating complaints of employee misconduct and violations of department rules and regulations. External complainants have the option of going to the Office of Police Conduct Review, the MPD Internal Affairs Division or any MPD supervisor with their complaint. It is the duty of all MPD employees to report any perceived violation of MPD regulations, rules, procedures, orders, civil service rules, city policies, city ordinances or state or federal laws committed by another MPD employee.

Public service hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

In some instances, all that is needed is to properly advise the citizen as to the circumstances of the incident they have been involved with. Sometimes a citizen does not fully understand what has occurred. In some cases, citizens are not fully aware of what powers and responsibilities a police officer has. Once this is explained, many complaints are resolved.

The Office of Police Conduct Review provides citizens with avenues of resolution to ensure that complaints of misconduct and inappropriate behavior are investigated thoroughly and without bias.
