Joseph, thank you for your response. Does the concord police dept of north Carolina have written internal rules governing the conduct of its sworn officers during the performance of their duties. if so, what are they? where can I find them?
Unfortunately, if they do (which they probably do) they are internal rules and will not be readily accessible to members of the public. They are definitely not available on the internet. If you have a complaint about how a particular officer treated you, you should contact them directly to file a complaint against the office.
The police department will conduct an internal investigation on suspicions of misconduct and will report back to you on their findings and the result. You can also ask the police department for any rules on officer conduct, but they aren't obligated to provide you with these.
