Receiving, Documenting, and Investigating Citizen’s Complaints
A relationship of trust and confidence between the employees of The Littleton Police Department and the citizens of our community is essential to the successful accomplishment of law enforcement objectives. All department employees are expected to conduct themselves, whether on or off duty, in such a manner as to reflect favorably upon themselves and the department. The consistently high quality of this standard of conduct establishes and maintains the reputation of the Littleton Police Department and encourages the support of the community for police purposes and community goals.
Within the Littleton Police Department the Internal Affairs Investigative Function is delegated primarily to the Deputy Chief of Police. On an ad hoc basis such investigations may be delegated to the Detective Bureau, an individual officer, or even performed by the Chief of Police.
The Internal Affairs function is important for the maintenance of professional conduct within the Littleton Police Department. The integrity of the department depends on the personal integrity sand discipline of each employee. To a large degree, the public image of this department is determined by how well it responds to allegations of misconduct against the department or its officers and the manner in which they are investigated.
