Bayonne Police Department - Internal Affairs Unit

It is the policy of the Bayonne Police Department to accept and investigate all complaints of agency and employee’s alleged misconduct or wrongdoing from any citizen, department employee or any other sources, including anonymous sources. Following a thorough and impartial examination of the available factual information, a conclusion will be determined and the employee shall be either exonerated or held responsible for the alleged misconduct.  Discipline shall be administered according to the degree of misconduct.

Officers and employees, regardless of rank, shall be subject to disciplinary action for violating their oath and trust.  Committing an offense punishable under the laws of the United States, the State of New Jersey, or Municipality constitutes a violation of that oath and trust. Employees are also subject to disciplinary action for the willful or negligent failure to perform the duties of their rank or assignment.  In addition, employees may be disciplined for violation of any rule or regulation of the department or for failure to obey any lawful instruction, order, or command of a superior officer or supervisor.  Disciplinary action in all matters will be determined based upon the merits of each case.
