The Professional Standards Division (PSD) is responsible for maintaining a high level of professional conduct within the police department. The PSD performs a variety of functions, including: investigating citizen complaints, maintaining complaint files and training department personnel. Because this division reports directly to the Chief, it can objectively address complaints against agency personnel.
With respect to training, the PSD ensures that department employees meet California Police Officer Standards and Training (POST) criteria, and receive regular training in additional areas such as: Use of Force, First Aid/CPR, Tactical Communication, Cultural Awareness, Emergency Driving, and Crisis Intervention.
