The Los Angeles Police Department’s Internal Affairs Group (IAG) was created in 1949. The goal of IAG is to improve and maintain the public’s confidence that all complaints will be thoroughly and impartially investigated. For more than fifty years, IAG, currently under the command of Professional Standards Bureau, has operated as the investigative arm of the Chief of Police to identify and report corruption and employee behavior that tends to discredit the Department or violate a Department policy, procedure or practice. Internal Affairs Group also conducts Board of Rights hearings and reviews all complaint investigations for consistency and fairness. Complaints are presented to the Chief of Police for a fair and appropriate adjudication and/or sanction, with consideration given to the complainant, the Department, the individual employee, and the public trust.

LITERATURE:
All attendees will receive a copy of the Board of Rights Handbook

Only properly credentialed members of the media will be permitted in to the press conference.
