Internal Affairs Print

The Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) acts directly under the authority of the Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety. The IAU has the authority and the responsibility to investigate any action or omission of an employee of the Department which may be in conflict with his or her duties and obligation, regardless of his or her rank.

All complaints or allegations of employee misconduct or criticism, initiated by a citizen or by a member of the Department, will be evaluated in an objective, timely and fair manner and process that fully investigates the facts and allows the employee an opportunity to respond to the complaint(s) or allegation(s).  Following each investigation, the facts will be revealed to both the employee and complainant.

Personnel of the Department of Public Safety are highly ethical and professional individuals who abide by the U.S. Constitution, the laws of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the rules and regulations of the Department. They are guided by the law, by the Department’s mission and vision, and by their own individual values.
