Finding Ways To Work Together With Our Community.

Wednesday, February 07, 2018

​In an attempt to be more transparent, the Virginia Beach Police Department is pleased to make available information regarding the Office of Internal Affairs.  https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/police/profstanddiv/Pages/ia.aspx

 

Via our website, citizens can gather information on how to provide a compliment or file a complaint.  https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/police/profstanddiv/Documents/PD166.pdf 

   

Citizens may also review investigative statistics of employee misconduct at https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/police/profstanddiv/Pages/ia-stats.aspx

 

The Virginia Beach Police Department also recognizes the value of mediation.  When allegations of employee misconduct are brought to its attention, the Office of Internal Affairs will work to facilitate mediation, when appropriate.  Mediation is an informal process in which the complainant and accused employee meet face to face with the assistance of a neutral party mediator to discuss the alleged misconduct.  The goal of mediation is to engage in good faith discussion and reach a shared understanding.    https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/police/profstanddiv/Documents/Handling%20Citizen%20Complaints%20by%20way%20of%20MEDIATION.pdf
