  • The Internal Affairs Division operates under High Command to identify and respond to inappropriate behaviour,that violates procedure or policy, from staff members of DOC. Investigations are carried by a member of staff from the Internal Affairs Division, they are impartial, in-depth and aim to protect the rights of the employee and maintain departmental integrity.

    The process detailed below serves as a way for employees, citizens, other government agencies to report misconduct committed by employees of this department. Allegations of false imprisonment, information leaks, leads in regards to corruption, abusive behaviour, poor service, lack of care and more, are all grounds for a complaint.:

    Employees of the Los Santos Department of Corrections are expected to conduct themselves professionally, adhere to departmental guidelines and act in the best interests of the community at all times. Anyone who feels that an employee has acted inappropriately should bring the matter to the attention of a supervisor or alternatively file a complaint to the Internal Affairs Division. All allegations will be investigated and appropriate action is taken. It is through this process that you can help maintain the high standards of quality that the department demands and the community deserves.

    Once a complaint is received, you will be sent a written acknowledgment via email. The complaint will then be reviewed by a member of the Internal Affairs Division to determine its validity. Assuming the complaint is valid, based on the information provided, the complaint will either be investigated by the Internal Affairs Division or forwarded to a different body in the department for action.

    A preliminary investigation is carried out is carried into all complaints received. A preliminary investigation is where key statements are gathered, sources of evidence are sought and a conclusion as to whether the complaint warrants a complete investigation is drawn. Any decision not to proceed with a complete investigation will be made by Internal Affairs Division Command/High Command. In these situations, the complainant will be informed via email with a written explanation as to the reasoning behind the decision. A complete investigation will only take place where the allegations, if true, would likely result in formal disciplinary action being taken.

    A complete investigation entails collating all relevant information in relation to the complaint to achieve the purpose of the inquiry. This is not necessarily an exhaustive investigation, and in some cases, a professional judgment will determine when sufficient relevant evidence of all points of view has been obtained.

    • Founded - The investigation has shown that some or all of the allegations made against the employee are true and that the conduct at issue is a violation of department policy or procedure.
    • Unfounded - The investigation has shown that none of the allegations made against the employee are true and that the conduct at issue is not in violation of department policy or procedure.
    • Unresolved - The investigation has shown that the allegations could not be proven true or untrue by a preponderance of evidence.
    • Exonerated - The investigation has shown that the conduct at issue occurred but is not a violation of department policy or procedure.
    • Policy Review - The investigation has shown that there is a need to modify an existing policy/procedure or to implement one.
    Once a conclusion has been reached, and disciplinary action has been issued, if necessary, the result of the investigation will be sent to the complainant. At this point, the investigation is considered to be complete and is closed.
