Complaints are submitted directly to the Office of Professional Standards for review and are issued a tracking number. Depending on the severity of the allegation, the case is assigned to either the Professional Standards investigator, or the employee’s supervisor for a thorough investigation.
Administrative investigations are conducted under the guidelines of the Florida Firefighter’s Bill of Rights, Florida Statute 112.82 and the member’s respective collective bargaining agreement, if applicable.
The complainant and the affected employee(s) will be kept informed of the investigation’s status throughout the process and will be notified of the finding and final disposition once the investigation is complete.
You may contact this office directly with additional questions, or to check the status.
