The Town Manager is the disciplinary authority for the Lexington Police Department, with protocols established in consultation with the labor unions. The Chief of Police, or a designee, works closely with the Human Resources Director and/or the Town Manager when a disciplinary action will be taken.
The Chief of Police is primarily responsible for the internal affairs. These policies are available for review on the Police Department's website (52 A - Internal Affairs Maintaining Professional Standards (PDF) and 52 B - Internal Affairs Investigation and Forms (PDF); internal affairs and forms). All complaints, including anonymous complaints, are investigated.
