Professional Standards

It is  essential  that  the  entire  community  have  confidence  in  the administration that supervises the exercise of police authority. This requires procedures for adequate and expedient processing of allegations of misconduct by Department employees. The Professional Standards function is designed to address these concerns and is important for the maintenance of professional conduct. Therefore, it  is  the  policy  of  the  Windsor Heights  Police  Department to thoroughly investigate formal complaints on Police Department employees.

Professional Standards Coordinator

The Chief’s Executive Officer is responsible for the administration of the Department’s professional standards functions. Currently, the Captain over Support Services acts as the Professional Standards coordinator, overseeing all internal investigations operations.


All complaints will be submitted in writing with a signature requested. The written complaint will then go directly to the Chief of Police. All Department employees will be required to accept and forward to a supervisor any formal complaint that comes to their attention.
