The Park Police Department is accountable for all official acts of its Officers. Therefore, the Department holds its members to a high standard of conduct and discipline in order to preserve the essential relationship of trust and confidence with the community they serve.
Valid complaints on Officers must be a violation of Park Police and/or City of San Antonio rules, regulations, policies, procedures, or State laws. Complaints and investigations on Officers are strictly governed by State and local laws and rules. Applicable State laws are derived from the Texas Government Code, Title 6, Chapter 614, Sub-Chapter B “Complaint Against Law Enforcement Officer or Fire Fighter”.
We also adhere to the rules outlined in the “Officer Bill of Rights” contained in the Meet and Confer Agreement between the San Antonio Park Police Officer’s Association and the City of San Antonio.
Complaints and investigations are also conducted and governed by the rules contained in the Park Police General Manual, I.e. Procedure 200 “Rules and Regulations” and Procedure 300 “Disciplinary Procedures”.
