To maintain the public confidence, all complaints must be thoroughly and impartially investigated. To that end, Internal Affairs was first created as a bureau of the Los Angeles Police Department in 1949. After over fifty years, Internal Affairs Group (IAG), currently under the command of Professional Standards Bureau, operates 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.
