    Yeppers you're getting it.

    You are assigned to IA....it's kind of a stepping stone per se in our dept. People have a stigma about IA and those assigned to the unit... IA is important...and those who dislike IA have something to hide.

    IA can be started internally or from a complaint by the public. I have had three.....from the public....all lies of course!!
    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

      First step,from what I hear,is perfecting the "pucker",the next would be the placement of the locator device in the chiefs nether regions so that every time he bends over you can excercise the pucker you have been working on so hard.--------------------------just sayin.
      Sleeping Giant. They're not fat and happy anymore. They are hungry and increasingly angry. That is not a good recipe for a "Puppies and Rainbows America".

        All of our IA and ICIB investigators are Sgts and above (except for the surveillance crew)....IA handles the admin types of complaints and ICIB the criminal.

        All are volunteer positions, and you have to interview for, and be selected for the positions.

          This goes back some years, our IA must not have had anything to do because they were sent out in 2 man cars to follow patrol units on their calls to make sure everyone was wearing their hat when out of the car. I lost my hat during a foot chase which ended in a shooting incident and the first two questions were, "where's the bad guy hit, and "where's your hat"?

          Later my hat was found squashed in the road. A car had run over it so the department had to buy me a new hat and shield.

          My opinion is IA is a bunch of idiots that were or are afraid to work the street.

            I had a sgt. that dreamed of going to IA. He was one of the biggest jerks I ever worked for.

              I have serious concerns for anyone who volunteers or voluntarily applies for an IA position...big red flag to me. IMHO, the best IA officers are the ones who are you would least expect to volunteer. I'm not talking about the "shady" guy who everyone suspects is on the take, but the guy (or gal) who comes to work everyday and quietly does their job. They may not be the most popular officer among the ranks, but no one really has anything bad to say about them...those make for the most reasonable and fair IA officers. In my experience, the ones who raise their hand are sometimes all too anxious to make a name for themselves at the expense of others.

              I don't mean to generalize, but that is what I've seen and experienced in my 10+ years of LE.

                I think I understand now. It's the job for those who perform best when 95% of the people they encounter don't like or trust them? Kinda like the IRS people?? LOL!

                The 9 most feared words in the English language are "I'm from the Government and I'm here to help!"

                On a serious note,thanks for all the answers as I had no idea what IA really was or what they did. Now I do. Thanks again.
                I'm old......that's all.
