Under the direction of the Police Chief, Professional Standards' purpose is to conduct thorough and objective administrative investigations as assigned by the Police Chief. Professional Standards recruits quality applicants for employment within the Department, conducts thorough background investigations, protects the public from employee misconduct, protects employees from false allegations of misconduct, and identifies faulty policies and procedures that might otherwise go undetected. Professional Standards also monitors training and makes recommendations as needed.
Complaints including complaints of Racial Profiling
The Wylie Police Department takes citizens' concerns seriously. We believe the public is entitled to efficient, fair and impartial service. We investigate all allegations of employee misconduct and respond to inquires about employee actions or department policy.
The Texas Government Code requires that all complaints against police officers be in writing and signed by the person making the complaint.
Citizen complaints may be accepted by any supervisor of the department who is approached for such assistance. The supervisor shall document the complaint in writing and promptly forward the complaint to Professional Standards.
The supervisor may attempt to resolve a complaint by an exploration of departmental policies and procedures, where applicable. Attempts to resolve complaints shall be noted on the complaint report.
Telephone complaints, anonymous complaints, or complaints from citizens who wish their names to be held in confidence shall be documented and forwarded through the chain of command. The Chief of Police will determine whether further investigation is necessary
