Functions & Responsibilities The inspections and internal affairs functions are performed to maintain the department's professional standards, preserve public confidence, and ensure the overall integrity of the police department. The Internal Affairs Division consists of one lieutenant and two sergeants. The primary responsibility of inspections is to conduct periodic checks and reviews on a variety of police department functions. This is done to verify compliance with department policy and procedures, and to provide feedback to supervisors and the chief of police. The inspections function includes an annual analysis of motor vehicle pursuits, bias based profiling complaints, responses to aggression, internal affairs, personnel grievances, and the early identification system. The department's evidence and storage system is also periodically checked for compliance. The internal affairs function has the primary responsibility of investigating complaints against police department employees, civil tort claim investigations, and allegations of misconduct within the department.
The Farmington Police Department understands the importance of community feedback, both negative and positive. Information provided by the public helps us to better our department, thus providing the best service to our community.
