Okay, I made my complaint, what happens next?
A detective from the Internal Affairs Section will investigate your complaint. Based on the results of that investigation suggest a finding to the Chief of Police. If the complaint is sustained the Chief will send the case to the officer's supervisor for a recommendation of discipline.

The Chief will review the entire case before making a final decision. The finding in the case will be one of the following four categories:
- Sustained - Enough evidence exists to prove the complaint.
- Not Sustained - The evidence neither proves nor disproves the complaint.
- Unfounded - The incident either did not happen or the accused member was not involved.
- Exonerated - The incident occurred but the accused member acted properly.
