Internal Affairs Unit

It is essential that all allegations of police misconduct are thoroughly and objectively investigated to assure the public that official police misconduct will not be tolerated, and at the same time, provide a process whereby officers unjustly accused can be vindicated.  The responsibility and authority for these investigations within the Martin County Sheriff's Office are vested within the Professional Standards Section, Internal Affairs Unit.

The Internal Affairs Unit has as its major function the receiving, processing and investigation of complaints made against members of the agency.  To ensure the public trust and maintain the agency's integrity, the Unit conducts immediate, objective and thorough investigations of all complaints.
