The Coral Gables Police Department is recognized as one of the finest law enforcement agencies in the nation. We are proud of the high quality of service we provide to the resident and visitors of Coral Gables. To maintain this well-deserved reputation, we must strive for excellence. It is essential that all allegations of police misconduct are investigated thoroughly and objectively. This will assure the public that official misconduct will not be tolerated, and at the same time will provide a process whereby unjustly accused officers can be vindicated. The responsibility and authority for these investigations fall within the Coral Gables Police Department and are vested in the Office of the Chief of Police, Internal Affairs Section.
Citizen complaints against Coral Gables Police Officers and/or non-sworn employees are investigated by the Internal Affairs Unit.
All complaints will be accepted by the Internal Affairs Section and can be received in person, by letter, by telephone, or by e-mail. Anonymous complaints are also accepted.
