Program Description

  Office of the Chief

The Office of the Chief has responsibility for the overall management, direction, planning, and coordination of all MCPD programs and operations. The Chief is responsible for administering the Department in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, and ensuring that organizational objectives are met.

The Internal Affairs Division (IAD) is organizationally located in the Office of the Chief. The Department strives to maintain a relationship of trust and confidence with the community that it serves. A critical part of maintaining this level of trust is through an effective and sound disciplinary process, and objectively investigating complaints of misconduct. The IAD manages this process and ensures that each complaint is thoroughly reviewed and investigated so that corrective action is taken on sustained cases for improper conduct, and employees are safeguarded from unwarranted criticism for properly engaging in their duties.
