    Complaints will be accepted any time.

    Complaints will be accepted regardless of the age, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or immigration status of the complaining party.

    It is the policy of this agency to accept and investigate all complaints of alleged officer misconduct or wrongdoing from any citizen or agency employee. Following a thorough and impartial examination of the available factual information, the case report will include a final disposition. If discipline is in order, it shall be administered according to the degree of misconduct.

    It is the policy of this department that officers and employees, regardless of rank, shall be subject to disciplinary action for violating their oath and trust. Committing an offense punishable under the laws of the United States, the State of New Jersey, or municipal ordinances constitutes a violation of that oath and trust. Officers are also subject to disciplinary action for failure, either willfully or through negligence or incompetence, to perform the duties of their rank or assignment. In addition, officers may be disciplined for violation of any rule and regulation of the department or for failure to obey any lawful instruction, order or command of a superior officer or supervisor. Disciplinary action in all matters will be determined based upon the merits of each case.

    It is the policy of this agency that prevention is the primary means of reducing and controlling misconduct. To that end, it is the policy of this agency to discover and correct organizational conditions, which permit the misconduct to occur. Special emphasis is placed on recruitment, selection and training of officers and supervisors, community outreach and the analysis of misconduct complaints and their outcome.
