Internal Affairs

It is the responsibility of the Chief of Police to administer the Internal Affairs process.  Complaints against the East Bay Regional Park District's Police Department are received in one of two ways.  Citizen initiated complaints (CC's) are the result of a complaint from a member or members of the public.  Department initiated investigations (IA's) are the result of Department personnel alleging a violation of our policy manual and or misconduct against another member of the Department.

The Department of Public Safety conducts annual statistical summaries of internal affairs investigations that are made available to the public and agency employees.   By providing this information we believe we are demonstrating that the East Bay Regional Park District's Department of Public Safety holds its personnel accountable for their actions.
