Independent Police Auditor

WE HEAR YOU

Over the last few days, we have watched and listened. We hear you -- we hear your call for additional accountability, transparency, and a different dynamic of police-community relations.

WE HEAR YOU

We are here to take your complaints about policing seriously, to ensure each complaint is investigated thoroughly, and to share the process with the public. 

WE HEAR YOU

Tell us more. We want to give you an opportunity to share your concerns and have created a community survey for you to give us feedback: https://my90.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3IZn2EDMAZUuBCd . We also will take your feedback  by any means you wish to communicate it. 

WE HEAR YOU -- Keep telling us how to do better. 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A POLICE OFFICER DOESN'T FOLLOW THE RULES?

How can the police department be more responsive to community concerns? Who examines the policies of the police department? These are issues that the office of the Independent Police Auditor (IPA) looks at.

WHAT IS THE INDEPENDENT POLICE AUDITOR'S FUNCTION?

Our office is a government agency separate and independent of the San Jose Police Department. We strive to increase confidence in the police department by listening to the community, by suggesting good policy changes, and by making sure that the Department addresses officer misconduct.
