The Richardson Police Department views internal discipline as the principle means of earning community support and promotes an expectation of accountability, thereby establishing mutual public trust. Internal Affairs is established to provide this important process for the Chief of Police. Understanding that public sentiment is often cultivated on a one-to-one basis, it is the Department’s continued goal to assure that our established internal processes will provide the City of Richardson with a Police Department that will be responsive to those social values that recognize and establish individual officers as professionals.
The inspections process ensures that all vehicular pursuits, use of force, and on the job injuries are reviewed for compliance with all Departmental policies and procedures. The inspections are made to provide opportunities to improve training and review policy in regard to those three areas.
