Lieutenant Erick Thomas
The Sparks Police Department values the trust placed in it by the citizens of Sparks. In order to maintain the trust placed in the Police Department, the Police Department investigates complaints made against department personnel in a fair and equitable manner.
The Internal Affairs Section is staffed by a Police Lieutenant. The Section is responsible for the investigation of citizen and internal complaints filed against all employees within the Police Department. The Internal Affairs investigator completes a thorough investigation consisting of interviews, collection of evidence, police reports or other sources. Once the investigation is completed, a determination is made as to whether or not a Department Policy and Procedure or General Order was violated. The investigative findings are then reviewed by the Chief of Police as to their final disposition.
In order to obtain further information regarding filing a complaint against an officer, please contact Lt. Erick Thomas at the above listed number or any Patrol Division Watch Commander at 775-353-2236.
