Internal Affairs

Share this article

Internal Affairs is responsible for accepting complaints regarding allegations of misconduct or unlawful activity against departmental employees.

Internal Affairs reviews every citizen complaint. If the complaint is of conduct that would violate police procedures or laws, Internal Affairs will conduct the investigation. Minor complaints are forwarded to the officer’s division for investigation; however, Internal Affairs will monitor all investigations. If a crime is alleged, the Dekalb County District Attorney’s office will be contacted as part of the investigation.

The Doraville Police Department is interested in the welfare of all citizens, and in taking proper action when employees are proven negligent in their duties and/or are guilty of wrongdoing. Our citizens can be confident they will receive a fair and thorough investigation.

Officers who perform their duties in an outstanding and professional manner go unrecognized. In these instances, if you observe an act or service by a Doraville Police officer and feel the action should be noted, please feel free to tell the department, the officer or their supervisor. You are also encouraged to send a letter to the Chief of Police expressing your feelings.

Doraville Police officers are dedicated individuals who are diligently performing their duties in an effort to better serve you and our community.
