Providing Diverse Resources
The Office of the Independent Police Auditor (IPA) publishes various publications year round that reach a diverse group of people in the city of San José and nationwide. Publications range from brochures, annual reports, to booklets.
The IPA Office's Year End Report includes a statistical analysis of the number of complaints made, the complaints sustained and the actions taken. It also reports on trends and patterns and makes recommendations.
The office also published the youth guide titled, "A Student's Guide to Police Practices." The goal of the guide is to provide information about interacting with police officers and to help them make smart decisions. It contains fundamental information every youth and parent needs to know about police practices.
