society’s designated representative to uphold its laws,
the Police Officer is held to a higher standard than other
citizens. It is the responsibility of every Abington Police
Department member to promote this ideal. The Abington Police
Department is committed to maintaining the integrity of its
members and is dedicated to upholding the trust of the community.
To preserve that integrity and trust, the department accepts
and investigates formal and anonymous complaints from citizens
of the community, and from internal sources.
The Professional Standards and Internal Affairs Unit was formed
with the mission of assuring the integrity of the Abington
Police Department by maintaining an internal system that is
objective, fair and equitable in its methods of internal investigation.
The Internal Affairs Unit investigates all complaints or allegations
of corruption, use of excessive force, breach of civil rights,
criminal misconduct, and violations of department policy.
All aspects regarding the monitoring of professional standards
will be performed diligently with fairness and integrity.
A proper administrative system will not only provide for necessary
corrective action, but will also protect employees from unwarranted
and unjustified complaints.
