Good internal affairs practices help protect the integrity of a police department. Correct handling on internal affairs complaints protect both citizens and law enforcement personnel. But not every officer receives clear training about how to handle internal affairs complaints. This five-minute roll call training for police officers features James Abbott (Chief of the West Orange Police Department), Samuel DeMaio (Director of the Newark Police Department), Bryan Gurney (Chief of the Ramsey Police Department and President of the Bergen County Chiefs Association), and Quovella Spruill (Captain with the Essex County Prosecutor's Office), discussing best practices regarding accepting internal affairs complaints.
