Complaints filed against Public Safety Officers are reviewed by the Office of Professional Standards. These investigations include interviewing the complainant and involved officers, and a review of evidence. Evidence could include body worn camera footage, police reports, and other relevant documents.
After the investigation is completed, the findings are presented to the Public Safety Chief for review and to make a determination. The complainant will be notified of the Chief's decision.
If the complainant disagrees with the decision, they may file an appeal to the Citizens Public Safety Review and Appeals Board (CPSRAB). CPSRAB is citizen board that hears appeals of these decisions. You can find more information at www.kalamazoocpsrab.org.
