Maintaining Our Integrity

Administrative Services is also responsible for conducting all investigations of alleged staff misconduct. The internal affairs function helps uphold the Office’s high standards of integrity and dedication to duty, and involves the swift and effective investigation of all citizen complaints and allegations of improper action. This important responsibility is accomplished by our Internal Investigations Deputy. Recent data on types and dispositions of investigations is available online.
