The PSU Sergeant focuses on matters of alleged violations or misconduct by members of the Longmont Department of Public Safety, promising impartial investigation of complaints, facilitating prompt and just disciplinary action, and identifying organizational conditions, which may contribute to misconduct, exposure to liability or poor efficiency. Reporting directly to the police chief, the PSU has full authority to conduct investigations without interference from any member. PSU is also responsible for policy manual updates, as well as working with the commendation process for department members.
