Professional Standards

Employees of the Corinth Police Department make every effort to perform their duties in a competent, courteous and professional manner. Frequently, many employees exceed the expectations of the public by providing exceptional service that surpasses the norm. If you observe an employee performing in a manner that you think is exceptional and reflects favorably on the Department, then we encourage you to take a moment and tell us about it. 

Unfortunately, not every contact with our officers and employees, as with other organizations, is always totally satisfactory, and a complaint may need to be made. Upon receipt of a complaint, a written complaint is required; an internal investigation may then be initiated. The purpose of the internal investigation is the pursuit of truth. We are committed to that objective, recognizing that our agency’s credibility depends on the community’s belief that we can police ourselves. 

The primary duties of this Professional Standards Unit is to conduct administrative investigations regarding accusations of employee misconduct, inspect departmental operations for maximum efficiency, ensure compliance with established policies and procedures, conduct background investigations and recruit new officers.

This unit is also responsible for developing new policies and procedures and conducting employment background investigations.
