Employee Rights

Check your specific collective bargaining agreement, department procedural orders, and civil service regulations.

The following are some general employee rights:

  • Accused employees may review the complaint and are entitled to a copy of their own statement upon request.
  • Closing letters will be sent, which provides the employee the opportunity to review the OMI case report.
    • Sustained cases in the Police Bureau only, are not included here.  The disciplinary process has its own review procedures.
  • Any interview may result in disciplinary action depending on the outcome of the entire investigation. 
    • An employee will always be informed of the possible work rule violations prior to the interview.

Possible closing categories are:

  • Sustained
  • Not sustained
  • Exonerated
  • Unfounded
  • Founded
  • Closed by memo

If employees wish to check their OMI history, they may request a review through the civilian Assistant Chief.
