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.
