The Rochester Police Department recognizes the significance of maintaining public trust, while providing courteous and professional police service. To further this aspiration, the Professional Standards Section is responsible for receiving, processing, and investigating complaints made against employees and officers of the Rochester Police Department in a thorough and objective manner. The primary goal of the Professional Standards Section is 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 PSS Annual Report provides a variable snapshot of statistics and reports regarding complaint allegations, use of force incidents, and investigative case findings. It is of the utmost importance to the Rochester Police Department to remain transparent to the community in which we protect and serve.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Professional Services Section at (585) 428-7131.
