Complaint Investigative Process
  • Every complaint of misconduct will be supervised by the NYSP Professional Standards Bureau.
  • Upon receipt of a complaint, the PSB will assign the case for investigation. Generally, complaints of a routine nature will be assigned to the employee's supervisor or commander. More serious or complex matters will be investigated by the Regional PSB Offices.
  • Investigators will:
    • Attempt to contact the complainant, the accused employee and witnesses;
    • Examine physical evidence;
    • Review reports and records, and
    • Thoroughly document the facts surrounding the incident and allegation.
  • The investigator's report will be submitted to the PSB where it will be reviewed for completeness and objectivity, then it will be forwarded to the superintendent.

Disciplinary Action

If the investigation indicates an employee has committed an offense, under the NYSP Rules and Regulations, disciplinary action will be taken commensurate with the severity of the offense (mitigating circumstances may be considered).

After final disposition is reached by management, appropriate action will be taken. Disciplinary action may involve loss of vacation days, remedial training, suspension, or termination.

Professional Standards Bureau

The public can file a complaint by mail, via email or to a regional office in person during regular business hours - 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
