§ 3. CCA Investigation Process  

Latest version.
  • Each citizen complaint, excluding matters involving criminal investigations, will be directed to the CCA regardless of where it initially is filed, and the executive director, in consultation with the board, shall establish criteria to determine whether specific complaints are suitable for CCA investigation or referral to the CPD's Citizen Complaint Resolution Process (CCRP). At a minimum, the CCA shall open its own investigation upon (i) receipt of a complaint of serious misconduct, or (ii) knowledge by the executive director of allegations of serious police intervention. The CCA will immediately provide the CPD with detailed information regarding the complaint, including the time and location of the underlying events and the name(s) of the officer(s) involved.
