The mission of the Office of the Independent Police Auditor (IPA) is to provide independent oversight of and instill confidence in the complaint process through objective review of police misconduct investigations.

By providing outreach to the San José community and making thoughtful policy recommendations to the City Council, the IPA works to promote accountability and to strengthen the relationship between the San José Police Department and the community it serves.

IPA Guiding Principles
  • The IPA strives to ensure that all concerns reported by members of the public are classified and investigated at the appropriate level based upon the premise that any case brought forward containing misconduct issues will be classified as a complaint with associated allegations, findings, and officer names tracked.
  • The IPA carefully considers aggregate data from complaints, community concerns, and public policy in crafting recommendations aimed toward improving the quality services of the San José Police Department.
  • The IPA reaches out to inform the community about the complaint process and to listen and respond to broader community concerns.
