The mission of the Internal Affairs section of the police department is to investigate complaints pertaining to the conduct of any of our sworn officers. These complaints can be initially filed and discussed with the officer’s duty supervisor, the commanding officer and/or the patrol commander. If the matter is not adequately resolved at this level then the case is automatically referred to Internal Affairs.
Keep in mind that serious violations of conduct (including criminal conduct) will be investigated to the fullest extent. Professional standards involves the development and review of police policy and practices and the continual evaluation of the department to meet accepted police standards.
To make an inquiry or complaint against an employee, please make it in person at department headquarters located at 100 Main Street in Medford. Any police department employee whose duties involve public contact may accept an initial inquiry or complaint against personnel, procedures, or policies. If the inquiry or complaint is about personnel, you should contact the employee’s shift or unit commander. If the employee’s commander is not available, you may contact the on-duty supervisor. The supervisor will ensure that your inquiry or complaint is directed to the proper authority.
Internal Affairs is under the leadership of Captain Barry Clemente. firstname.lastname@example.org
