During calendar year 2016, there were a total of 26 external complaints and 8 internal complaints for a total of 32 complaints.  There are a total of 52 investigative findings for the 32 complaints.  The reason for the difference in the totals is due to the fact that each complaint may involve more than one officer as well as more than just one charge or complaint per incident which causes an increase in findings.

 

Sustained – The investigation disclosed sufficient evidence to clearly prove the allegations made in the

complaint.

Not Sustained – Investigation fails to discover sufficient evidence to clearly prove or disprove the

allegations made in the complaint.

Unfounded – The investigation indicates that the act or acts complained of did not occur or failed to

involve police personnel.

Exonerated – Acts did occur, but were justified, lawful, and proper.
