Professional Standards Unit

The Professional Standards Unit of the Culver City Police Department is responsible for maintaining the integrity and professionalism of the Police Department and its employees. Our goal is to thoroughly and objectively investigate all allegations of employee misconduct, which protects both the community and the Police Department’s employees. 

The Professional Standards Unit is managed by a Lieutenant who reports directly to the Assistant Chief of Police. All complaints are ultimately forwarded to the Chief of Police prior to being investigated. Completed investigations are reviewed by the Chief of Police and the Police Department’s Command Staff for final disposition.
